Fan keeps blowing

Hello! This is the first time this has happened -- I turned my car off, and the fan kept going and going. It never shut down. I left, went up to work, came back, and it was still going. Typically, it will shut off. I got in the car, turned it off and on again and the fan kept going (like the car was still running). I then tried to turn the car on again and it did not come back on at all. However, the fan was no longer running.

    Yes! This helps. I left the car alone and just went back outside and you know what? The car came back on! What do you think happened? Do you think I need to get it checked out? This has never happened before and I have had this car since 2004.

    Thank you so much for your help! You have no idea how much I appreciate it. :)

    I figured out something else -- I have a leak in the coolant system. I noticed that there was fluid leaking in my driveway for the last couple of day. I checked the coolant (sorry, I don't know the correct jargon -- lol) and it was very, very low...So perhaps this is why the fan kept running to try to cool the car down? So I added coolant again and now it is fine. But I probably need to check this out and get that leak fixed. Is this expensive?

I'm working on 2002 x-type thermostat housing asm. theres no room to remove because electric fans are in way. This is a very difficult car to work on. any sugestions. I've already removed rock guard panel under radiator, moved battery back to get at upper hose spring clamp affair(I hate these) and spent 2 1/2 hours. Do you have to lift engine up to remove?

There is a tempurature sensor that the fan gets a signal from so it knows when to turn the fan on or off. Sounds to me like this sensor went bad is sending false signals to the fan.

Hope this helps

    You should at some point have the system checked out. Allthough the worst thing that can happen if you don't get it checked out is a dead battery as the fan can run all night thus killing your battery. Also you may overheat while driving if the fan does not engage as it should when the temp increases.

    That fan sensor may have also prevented you from starting the car, if the sensor thinks the engine is overheated it will run the fan and prevent the car from being started until it cools down.

    Hope this helps again.

    Depends on where the leak is coming from, possible causes are waterpump(can be expensive), or it could be leaking from your upper or lower radiator hoses or the radiator itself. Try to determine where the leak is coming from.

    If its a hose it's a cheap quick fix.

No ac nd my fan stop working completely

Fuses blow because of higher than normal amperage in the circuit. Not sure what circuit the blown fuse is for but if it is for the fan the fan may be shorted therefore blowing the fuse. If you put fuse in while the ac was still on try shutting off the ac then putting the fuse in. See if it blows then if it doesn't then turn the ac on and if it blows you have at the very least isolated the system at fault.

When I turn the engine off the main radiator fan keeps running and is draining the battery. Why?

well the electric fan will turn on and off at any time. when you stop your vehicle and the fan continues to run what is happening is the temp sensor says the motor is still too hot and it needs more cooling. now as it reaches the cooling temp it is also suppose to shut it down. have the sensors checked.

My heater fan keeps blowing after vehicle is shut off

Are you sure it is the heater fan and not the radiator fan (or the fan next to it) just staying on, as they can stay on after the car is turned off. I am not familiar with Jeeps, but a cars fan can keep going.

1999 grand cherokee jeep -coolant fan will not shut off

Hi Jeepers,

The fan will occassionally continue to run for five or ten minutes after the vehicle shuts down. This is normal.

What is not normal is if it keeps running until the battery drains.

Does it just keep running?
If it eventually shuts off, how long does it take?
Did this just start happening?
The two days you mentioned, were they short trips, opposed to the third day?

If you would comment me back with some more details, it would help me help you.

Fan motor keeps running on Audi A4 2004

fan motor has a thermal switch which turns on the fan as soon as the engine heats up. what happened there is that the switch is stuck on the closed position which keeps the fan on all the time. you should go to a garrage and have the part changed.
