I don't know if that's a word or not.

Anyway, I drive about 50 miles one-way daily - a mix of stop-and-go and steady highway driving. Yesterday when I got to work and shut the car off, the fan was screaming. Same thing again last night, and same thing again this morning.

I have only caught it once before in the middle of a "regen", and that was months ago.

Is this normal, or something wrong with the car?

Hi Kristen,

Hoping it doesn't need a dealer visit at this point, but I will let you know if I do have to drop it off.

Took the car out for lunch (don't leave much for lunch) and it seemed just fine - I will see if it happens again this evening.

My cooling fan is always on after driving home. It get's a tad warm here (105-115). I don't believe the cooling fan is an indicator of your car regenning.

I have caught mine a few times doing this as well, first time was the winter when it was in the negatives outside.

The car will keep attempting to regen until it is successful. Eventually after so many tries it will display something to the effect of "continue driving" on the dash so it can complete the regen cycle that kept getting interuppted.

Nothing to worry about.

Then I'm pretty sure it will set off a code and force a reduced speed. I swear someone said that in a previous thread at least

It's not running the engine fan because it was driven hard or it's a hot day. It has done that once, and that was on low speed after I shut the car off.

After/during a "regen", the car puts the fan in super jet turbine mode and it almost smells like something is burning under the hood. THAT is what my car is doing.

As I pulled off the highway this evening, I actually got this message on the dash screen. Remember reading about it on the forum, and jumped back on the highway and ran it at 3000 RPM til the message went off. Came home, parked the car, and no jet noises from under the hood! Guess it successfully completed it...though I don't know why it didn't start once I left the city, as there is about 15-20 minutes of stop-and-go, and then 40 minutes of straight highway driving at 55-65.
