Hi

My X Trail seems to take a little longer than I would like to warm up/get heat into the engine.

Reading other posts it would seem that this is not uncommon and my 4 year 2.5 petrol could well be in need of a new thermostat.

However, I did notice today that from cold if I turn the aircon on both cooling fans start up immediately even though the engine is cold. Is this normal? I can see why the cooling fans may need to work a little harder than usual when the air con is on due to the added strain on the engine to run the compressor but would not expect this to be when the engine is first started when cold.

Is this normal or is the engine temperature sensor faulty?

Any help/advice would be appreciated.

Cheers

Often if the fan is always on it's the collant temp sensor but could also be a faulty fan switch or possibly a shorting out problem. Check the sensor first I would think as if both fans are on it's unlikely to be the switch? Hope this helps?
