Finally put 1000 mile on my hellcat challenger so I grabbed the red key for the first time and went to an isolated road near my house and did a couple of burnouts,since then just pulling the car out off the garage to wash it(the car my be running for several seconds if that)the electric fan will kick on after shutting the car off,during the accumulation of the 1000 miles the fan has never kicked on after shutting the car off which I my have been driving around for a couple of hours,is there a problem I should address?

Ok,can i disengage it
Performance Pages/Race Options/Race Cooldown, then turn it off. It's off when the Green Bar does not appear on the Race Cooldown Button.

But getting heat out of the motor/Intercooler System after driving is not a bad thing; it's a good thing. That's what this system is designed to do. I do it in the Summer Time here. And it keeps the System Active and you know it's working and available.

BTW, this screen is live. Pull it up, leave it and watch it. Before shutting off the engine, note the temp, which ones are Orange and which ones are Green.

After the cycle completes (fan turns off), move ignition button to Run (engine off), go to this screen and see a lower IC Temp.

No problem...

Again, not a bad idea to use the system to remove heat from the motor.

Best!

6 mo/6 k miles is fine. These motors run synthetic oil. Just check the level frequently since it's a new motor.
