When you turn your car off and the fans stay it is normal. The fans are on to cool your car down. Do not turn on the car and turn it off again to make the fans turn off. The Fans may run for a few seconds all the way up to 5 minutes. Just let them run. Its good for the car

Even longer than that in triple-digits heat.

if you let your car idle about 1 minute before you shut off, the "after car off fan still runs" time will greatly decrease.

Our cars are so uber that they want to keep moving even after you turn off the engine. Your car is trying to pull itself forward with the fan
