Default radar detec. turns on Engine Fan!?!!?

CN: put stereo in car, plugged cig lighter wires in backasswards and blew up my Radar detector.

SO

i swapped the wires back to the correct polarity, they were reversed, thats what blew up my radar detector.

stuck the multimeter in there, got a good POSITIVE 12.6v and one slipped and the radio cut off then back on

now when i plug in the old burnt up detector and turn it on, its still dead but the ENGINE FAN turns on! What the...

if anyone has a clue it'd be really nice to know what the hell thats about.

i'm going to get a new cig lighter and wire it myself, clean, new low FUSED power and a good clean ground.

i'm not gonna blow up my new RD.
