I have a D700 that is now entering its 4th Central Indiana winter in 
the mobile.

As others have stated, the fan is not thermostatically controlled, 
but is controlled by a simple off-delay timer that is activated 
whenever the PTT is keyed.

I noticed a couple of months ago that my fan was making noise 
whenever the radio was first keyed after sitting in a cold vehicle 
for several hours. After the fan runs a while and/or the vehicle 
heater starts making the interior a little warmer, the noise is reduced.

Sounds to me like it's time to replace my fan.
