Fan speed noticeably slows when turning the wheel.

Anyone else notice this? The other night I was driving with the heater on and the fans blowing at full or near-full speed (auto setting - it was really cold outside) and I noticed that when I turned the wheel, I could hear the fan speed dip noticeably and then go back up to full speed when the turning stopped.

I've always noticed that my headlights get a little less bright when I turn the wheel too, but never noticed the fan speed dipping (doesn't mean it never did - typically I don't have the fan speed up so high) so I wanted to run it by you guys and see if it happens with your Jeep too?

Re: Fan speed noticeably slows when turning the wheel.

If you have a V6 with electric power steering pump it could be influencing it.
