Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2011 silverado. The radiator fan comes on when the engine is cold,

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.
