    which fan are you referring to? the cooling fan or the blower motor fan?

    the cooling fan will run at times after the car is turned off if the engine still need to cooldown.

    If it is the blower fan you could have a short in the system that is causing it to turn on when you are not in the car. as far as it changing from 2-5 on the blower one of the contacts on the switch could be dirty and might need to be replaced.

    that is defenitly a wierd situation i had a similar thing happen. My A/C would not kick on, it would only come through the passenger vents, but after i shut the truck off it all went to normal.

    Sounds like your blower motor is starting to go... Pretty soon you'll only have off and full blast, and they'll be reversed (as in 5 will be off and off will be full blast)... LoL
