i had a somewhat similar problem with my 5k. My fan was running...and
running....and running...at first it just seemed to run a little too
long, then one day after diving it it took so long to shut off i went and
opened the hood to assist it a little.  I came back in a few minutes and
it was ok.  Satisfied, I returned to my car about 1 hr latrer and guess
what?  Dead battery!!! yee ha!  so I jumped the car and surprise! the fan
went on again....

the moral of the story is: check the fan relay, thats what was wrong with
mine good luck!    stefanie
