Active shutters/grille

Apologies if this is posted in the wrong place.
Recently I noticed that the active grille is staying open after a drive and not closing.
But if I press the start button 3 times to enter diagnostic mode the shutters will close but then after driving again they remain open. If I don't do this then they stay open and don't close at all.
Any suggestions or thoughts?

Known issue, take it in for warranty inspection.

I don't recall ever seeing mine open. Mine always appear to be closed.

If there is a known issue does that mean the fans won't kick in when the shutters are open?

I've only seen mine open a few times, in the garage after a drive, with the fans running. Usually, they are closed, with the fans running after a drive (I assume pulling air from the lower openings). I would assume there is a malfunction in the OP's shutters.

Same here. The fans run with them closed.
