Post 1995 C220 Elegance Petrol

Hi there,

This is my first post and I hope someone can help!

There are two fans in the front grill of my car which can be seen when the hood is opened.

They run from the moment I turn they key until about a minute after I have taken the key out.

The car has been not used for about a year.

My questions are:

1. Regarding the fans, should they be doing this and if not why are they doing it and any ideas on how to fix the problem?

2. If I leave the fans running all the time, will this damage or be bad for anything in the car?

3. What should I be looking at doing considering the car has been standing still for about a year or so? Oil change/Filter change etc?

As you can see I have very limited technical knowledge but just love my new Merc and and looking to learn!

Thanks for any replies,

1. No.

2. No, except that the fan motors might wear out prematurely and the battery life might also be thus shortened.

3. Oil change, check the tires for flat spots, clean things up, and you should be good to go.
