Interior heat sensor question?

Hi,
there is a small fan behind the interior heat sensor, the fan is allways on even when i lock and leave the car overnight or several days....
is it normal that the fan is allways on?


I have problem with my passenger door lock assembly, but i dont think this have to do with the fan..

Thanks in advance if anyone have this answer or solution....

Problem solved

solved the problem, it was the ignition switch fault, and it drained my battery.
googled and found solution in another forum:

""I have recently managed to cure the problem I had - The battery on my 2003 Boxster S was draining in 2 days if the car wasn't used. Did the usual of buying a new battery but just got the same - completely dead within 2 days. Took it to the garage expecting them to do as I'd been advised, use a volt meter and take each fuse out one by one - but they had had another Boxster in a month previous with the same problem and managed to find the fault - it was a part that sits close to the steering lock and houses the ignition barrel. In essence what should happen is that when you take the ignition key out everything electrical on the car should shut down but for some reason the fault in the barrel meant that everything was staying live - hence total drain within 2 days. So far so good with the new part - left the car for a week and it started first time. Sorted!! ""
