Default fan turns on when car is off

Hey people. I have a question here. I have a 2002 honda accord 2.3 L 4 cylinder.. and just today I turned my car off.. and a few minutes later my fan goes on. Is this normal?

yes it's normal. the reason for it is that your onboard computer is still recieving voltage. so all the sensors on your car are still active even though the car is off. so whan the sensor deliver a message to the onboard computer saying that the engine is hot, the fans turn off to prevent it from overheating. This allowes your systems to cool down faster especially if you live in hot parts of the country. also the engine tends to get hotter before it begins to cool after you turn off the car.
