Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When my new Highlander is parked/off and in garage, it makes a sound like a fan is

3 Answers


Because it is, it's the cooling fan, when it reaches a certain temperature it shuts off on it's own, this is normal.


When the car cools down from running or just from sitting in the garage when it is warm outside?

Mine does this as well. It is hours after the vehicle has been in use and the sound comes from under the passenger rear. I will forget about it, then walk out in the garage and hear it again. I really don't think it's the cooling fan when it hadn't been driven for 5 hours and it is 63 in my garage.
