Hi PGM, the fan running after turning the engine off is normal. What it means is the car has been doing a dpf regeneration, basically excess soot is being burned off.To achieve this extra diesel is injected into dpf to burn at a higher temperature, hence why the fan is running. If this happens you need to let it complete a regeneration. As Dave suggested, look through the forum and read up on the DPF and learn how to drive, manage and maintain the dpf system. ( but its not all doom and gloom, good car choice, enjoy it)

Just to add you can still have the cooling fan come on and it doesn't always mean a regen is taking place. I have had it come on with the warmer weather which is to be expected and normal.
