    Well i never bothered about it, generally takes 10 seconds to 30 seconds before radiator and rest of the stuffs shuts down.
    I am not sure how it goes with other fiat cars, but yes many times watchman, valet parking guys have rushed to me sayings, engine is on :p

    I think that would be the radiator fan which is controlled by a thermostat and a relay.
    It normally takes a while to turn off even you stop the engine.
    In my UNO, I had issues with the relay and have been stranded many times since the fan continuously ran draining the battery.

    Also happened to my Siena D and also my friend's Palio some times. Also, when the radiator fan develops a problem, it nearly kills the battery making it unreliable for cranking.
