2 days ago, I put my thermal imager on the Fusion.

Noticed a glow through the grill, But the car hadn't been driven for a day.

Checked it again this morning. 10 hours cold.

 

Something is warm in the inverter.

Under the plastic shroud on top of the radiator.

Any theories on why it need to self heat?

I have some questions... Is there any indication of the actual temperature or temperature difference? What is the ambient temperature where your car is parked? What type/brand of thermal imager do you have?

I dont think any modern car ever totally shuts off.  

 

And, you can set the scale to make it look pretty intetesting.

54.7 - 62.1degrees.

Didnt have the spot temp turned on for the photo.

Flir One.

 

Checked it again this morning.

No heat under the sticker this time.

 

But again, some small heat coming from the inverter.

 

 

Using the Flir to air seal the house.
