Running the fan

Hey all! I'm not a fan of the "new car smell" so I would like to run the fan while the car is charging in the garage. So I turn off the A/C, set the climate control to on, the fan to 4, the windows to "Vent" and the temperature to low. Perfect! ... except as soon as I exit the car, some motor turns on and revs the whole time, draining the batterry. As soon as I open the driver's door, it goes back to normal.

How can I get the car to run the fan on 4 with the windows down and no heating and no cooling all night?

TIA for your help,



Gabriel
 
You could try using the app instead of inside the car however, a short time after car is left a period of time, the fan starts to run on a lower setting. this I believe was a software change about a year ago to help dry out the condenser. I notice more than once coming out to the garage about half hour after parking and hearing the fan running. Try also leaving car in non-recirculate when leaving car.

If you have a normal house fan, position it so it pushes air in one of your car windows. That air will come out from the other open windows. I believe that will circulate the air better than the car's system (which is meant for circulating air inside the car). On top, you won't wear out car systems, and it might be cheaper to run.

I really like the smell. Is it possible for you to bottle it and send it by mail?
