Perhaps the 12V you are seeing is 'back-feeding' into the fan connector?

I'd disconnect the fan connector and it's relay (it DOES use a relay, right???) and test continuity in the circuit. Be aware that Lotus' electrical connectors are not very robust. A loose terminal in a relay SOCKET is a possibility.

Also: inspect the sockets for signs of excess current (melted plastic).
