    Lately, the radiator fan kicks on within seconds of starting the car. Even does it first thing in the morning while engine is still cold. I do use remote start & climate control is set to auto. Does having the climate control on make the fan turn on so soon?? It sounds like a Jet Engine ready to fly!!
    I just dont want to take to dealership if its its something so simple.
    Can anyone help??
    Thanks!!

    Have you tried it with all that off and not on auto? See if the fans kicks on again with all that off.

    On every other vehicle I have owned (so I don't see why this one would be any different) if you're running the AC system it'll kick on the radiator fan. Start it up with the AC system off and see what happens.

    Yes, the AC will make the fan turn on right away. The AC will not work right without the fan especially when not moving.

    Normal. My 13PP does the same, coolant fan runs wide open at start up with the A/C on. Sounds like hell from the outside but thankfully inside the vehicle it's not noticeable.
