2016 Fan
 
I'm driving my car with the econ button always on see if it will make a difference with my gas this time. Question the fan why does it seem it's blowing more air when i press the break pedal and when i press th gas again seem its not blowing air as much?!?
Im really not a fan of the 2016 regret selling my 2013 :(

Not sure... But I drove stop and go yesterday in traffic with the fan on 1 and 2 and never once noticed any speed difference based on what my feet were doing.

EDIT: Are you talking about the radiator fan or the inside fan? I noticed from a previous post, you asked about the fan going on and off in your 2012 LX and I wasn't clear on that on that post either!?

Also fans could simply sound louder at stops w/o background of engine/road noise .. .. ..

Leave it on 2 with no music and really listen

charmed_6719 07-31-2016 09:45 PM

Quick questions to see if others have noticed this on their 2016 models. I have the econ button always on, i have my interior fan at speed 2, I've noticed a different when I drive. The fan why does it seem it's blowing more air when I press the gas pedal and when I press the break seems its not blowing much air. Like I turn the music off completely and I can hear a difference and feel the difference with the fan. Seems like it's adjusting. My 2013 never did that.

it could be the way the eco mode works. It helps you save gas. While you are accelerating you are using more gas so it lowers the power to the fans and prob other things to reduce the load on the alternator, to help save on gas. When you are braking or stopped and not using as much gas it will increase the load on the alternator, letting the fan blow a bit harder.
This is just a guess, but sound possible

Hmmm... I read your post from here from 05-02-2012 where you speak of fan issues 4 years ago:

I have a question about it tho, the size of the car, the ride, the inside etc everything is the same but the fan is not.
The fan seems to go off more often than it would with my other one, is it because I have A/C now because I have not even open the A/C yet.
Was just wondering as I am not used to that noise.

Maybe you mis wrote? Anyway, maybe your battery level is low and that would cause the fan to lose power with the brake press because the lights take a certain amount of draw. Have you tested your battery?

I miss wrote cause i went from a 2010 to a 2013.

Ive had the car two weeks if the baterry is low we got issues lol
