Unhappy Subaru impreza Sti v2 fan problem

Hi everyone.

I have a strange problem with my version 2 sti, I hadn't been started for months as I left it in my fathers garage, so I used a booster pack to start it, and it started straight away no problems, I moved it outside the garage and stripped the front brake pads and calipers down and replaced them with new 4 pot calipers and 294 discs no problem, but when I restarted the car I needed to use the booster pack again and the door was opened so that set the alarm off.

But then the real problem came to light, the radiator fans started running and wouldn't stop, the red check engine light stayed on, I checked the coolant and the level was correct, the gauge inside the car also appears to work ok, so I left it running to make sure the coolant pipe got warm/hot.

I then switched off and switched back on as soon as I turned the key without even starting the engine the radiator fans came on, I couldn't start it anymore as battery was still flat

Any ideas please would be great
(Impreza sti version 2)
