Yeah, do the hardware equivalent.
Unplugging the actuator and going for a drive is a good way to flush the error code history. I.e. clearing the codes using a BT cable or through the PROcede only clears the current codes, not the history. So the dealer may still be able to pickup tuner codes (if any are logged) if this has not been cleared.

I do not think it does....? Or at least i do not notice it. I might record one of my cold-starts and post it up for ya.
You could try to reset the codes and verify that the code is gone. Start and stop the car and then re-check if the code came back?

Easiest way to check if the fan is working, is to get the car up to temp and then park up with the engine running. Wait 1-2 min, pop the hood and check if the fan is running. It may come on and off.

As far as the HPFP, could this be related to it?
Ah forgot that you're reading the codes using the PROcede. The extra info about the "pulse-duty actuator flap" is from using a BT tool. It still doesn't give you much more info and INPA may actually be better here. I had good experience getting more detail from INPA as it's able to parse a lot more codes and get sub codes with descriptions. Only issue is that the descriptions generally are in German. So it's still a long shot if it will get you any closer, so you may be better off getting the dealer to look at it unless you know anyone with an INPA cable.
