Oh, it turns off in Econ - my sweat was the fan running too much - In town
now, my temp is down about to 1/2 way - before I ran just under the fan cycle
point. Also, I know that at freeway speeds I shouldn't need the fan - even
if the AC is running. It bothers me that there is no real explanation of the
3 stage cooling fan system - just a disclaimer of "don't stick yer pinkies by
the fan". The only part explained (with not much detail) is the temp/time
delay system after shutdown. I know my old 79 5KS fan didn't run all the
time w/AC on.
