What exactly is going on with your vehicle? I need as much detail as possible. Do you have the vehicle identification number available?

My wife has the car at the moment. As I said, the Aux Cooling Fan comes on at the dumbest time -
after 110-15 minutes of driving, even at 20 degrees (F). The temp gauge shows "Normal", exactly
what it has always shown.
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

On the original statement there was no information about the auxiliary cooling fan. When you're standing at the bumper looking down is it the driver-side fan or passenger side fan that's coming on intermittently? If you shut the inside blower off and make sure you're not in any of the defrost modes does the cooling fan still come on or does it remain off at that point?

First thing - I had a brain problem - The RAV4 is a 2011 NOT a 2013.
VIN: 2T3DF4DDV4BW091365
Just spoke to my wife, got the VIN, and wouldn't you know it, she's had
no problems with the fan(s). There are two. If she has problems later
today, can I still get in touch with you?
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes Do the test as I described and let me know if the fans stay off
