Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2011 silverado. The radiator fan comes on when the engine is cold,
even when first started after sitting all night. Does anyone know what the
problem could be?

Have your thermostat checked. It may be stuck open.

check if a/c is on this would activate fans to cool condenser when parked. you would need to look at wire schematic to be sure for that model, very likely.
