Re: 2001 cadillac sts blower motor turns itself on
Welcome to the cadillac forms!
The afterblow is enabled; it's actually a good thing and no problem at all. After you've been driving the car a while with the A/C ON, then you shut it off and park the car, the blower motor will come ON for about 3 minutes or so to dry the condensation off the evaporator. It’s a great way to keep the musty/mildew smells out of your car.
