Did you happen to look through the front grill to see if the shutter was open or closed?AbelGoddard wrote:Car finished charging a few minutes ago. Fan still running, garage really hot. Outside temp is 85F. I've opened the garage door to cool it down and see if that gets the fan to stop.
Regarding my charger being faulty - I assume you mean my wall unit? - I doubt it. Only because I previously used it for 2.5 years with my Focus Electric. I did have a problem with it for a while, but it was a faulty cable that sometimes let the car start charging and sometimes didn't. I sent it back and they replaced the cable. No problems in the 2 years since. Anything is possible, but since I'm not the first to have the running fan issue, my money is on the car being at fault.
If I can cool the garage and the fan stops, well, I don't know. I don't think it should stay running and heating the enclosed space by default. Doesn't anyone else keep their car in an enclosed garage?
I keep both my 2014 Spark EV and 2015 Spark EV in a closed garage although, in hot weather and while I am awake, I keep the garage door raised about 8 inches. Lately, garage temps in the early evening have been running 90 to 100 deg. F at the car level.
