Thats great i have never noticed my fan coming on after she has been locked up but i have had cars that have but my car never seems to get very hot anyway,i would of thought if your car does mine would also do it if it was hot enough after i stopped so it must them be a positive fan,its just that iam thinking of buying a extra part for my alarm and it has to have a deley on it if it is a positive fan because if it was to arm strait away the fan would set it off,thanks Bob all the very best Donald.
