The missus came back and switched the engine off. Hot enough for the radiator fan to be running flat out (noisy, isn't it!). Seemed to go on for a long time so I got back into the car intending to turn the ignition on and check for warning lights. Only I noticed that the display was still on. I could be dumb and this is normal but certainly don't recall seeing this before. Or is it a 'feature'? Turned the ignition on, fired up the engine, no warning lights so turned it back off. Radiator fan stopped. Central display went out. All as per normal.

In itself, could have been 'one of those things' but coupled with the other issue posted in 'electronics', I'm starting to get a bit concerned about intermittent reliability. 2012 Q3 50,000 miles.

Hi countryman, I never owned a 2012 Q3 but on my 2018 Q3 when you turn off the car sometimes my fan continues to run as well (if on a hot day).

With regards to the screen staying on...was the door closed after your wife got out, or did she leave the door open and you simply jumped in? This could play a factor in the screen and radio staying on....I say this only because on my 2018 Q3, when I shut the car off, the radio and bluetooth and power to sunroof, garage opener and windows stays on until I open the door (even after the ignition is turned off).

But again, with you having a 2012, it might and probably doesn't work the same way.

Wish I could be of more help.

Hi and thanks for the reply. No, she'd shut the door after she got out. My 2012 is also the same as yours (unless I remove the key when the radio certainly goes off).
