Had the same thought Kent...I'm sure I'll be able to collect data over
the next few days to see if it was just coincidental - or if in fact it
occurs only when the after-run fan is on..

My first thought was "ignition switch", but it starting after the
after-run fan
stops is throwing me.  I still say "ignition switch".
