I CAN ADJUST ALL MINE FOR WHEN (IT HITS A CERTAIN TEMP LIKE 180o) AND WHEN I WANT IT TO TURN OFF SAY 120o..

THE LIGHTS ON THE DASH BOARD GOES FROM DIM TO BRIGHT. IS THIS ANOTHER ELECTRICAL ISSUE? IS IT WORTH IT TO GET FIXED OR JUST TRADE IT IN?

THE FAN NEVER DID THIS BEFORE NOT EVER ALL OF A SUDDEN IT JUST RUNS. DOESN'T SOUND RIGHT.

I also have a 2008 and just this week the fan kept running for few minutes after car turned off. Only happens if I have driven at least an hour. Never before has this happened, so is this normal?
