    Not sure this has been covered but strangely the radiator fan in my C63 (W204) now where the weather has turned cold (only in this cold weather) kicks in 1-2 minutes into the drive and then comes off again after 5ish minutes. Seems very good and would be good with some advice / experience on this.

    Cheers

    Unless you're having issues with it not reaching proper temperature I wouldn't worry.

    No issue on that side of things at all.

    Sounds an unusual failure.

    I agree and surprised myself to be honest but well things break just annoying and seeing the MIL / EML on is never a thrill
