I think it means that your cooling fan can use reason to obtain knowledge and enlightenment

JK, not a clue, sorry man. That's a funny code though, never seen it before...

That's a Cooling Fan Function Problem. One of the fans had a malfunction. Sometimes if you idle the car with a wall or another car in front of it it sets off the code. Make sure nothing is blocking them. And check the fan blades. Are you overheating or hearing any funny noises? Make sure both fans are coming on. If nothing seems wrong then clear the code and see if it comes back.
