The fan is designed to run to cool down the engine to prevent hot start problems, you had better have the battery tested as well as the charging system, I suspect the battery is going bad.

Heat fan stayed on when key off, killed battery, recharged battery, tried to pull fuse for heater fan, still ran, pulled power connector to fan. When tried to reconnect this morning, fan not working....


Did you remember to replace the fuse?. So, the fan kept running even with the controls in the off position? Were there any other accessories that would run with the key turned off?

3.8litre ,electric fan continues to run killing battery.doesn't happen all the time.


It is most likely the fan relay is sticking and allowing the fan to run on, the relay is plugged into the fuse/relay box on the drivers side of the engine compartment.

1991 honda accord lx cooling fan


Some vehicles have sensors that can control the electric fan with the ignition off to keep the heat buildup that naturally occurs right after turning off the engine. This can prevent hard starting that can happen with a hot engine. If it is doing this an abnormal amount, the sensor that is operable with the ignition off may be failing. Before turning off the ignition, check to see if the engine temperature is pushing the 'red zone;' if it is, then the fan operation may be normal but your engine may be running hot.

My 2003 chevy cavalier electric fans wont turn off


Usually after driving, your rad fan can continue to run for up to 2 minutes after shutting off the car. It can even start up on it's own if it detects that the temperature of the engine is too hot (say if it's over 50 degrees celcius). The fan running for these several minutes should be of no concern. If it's staying on and not turning off for 30 minutes, then that is of concern

My mdx 2002 acura fan blows constantly and kills my battery.


You most likely have a sticking fan control relay.
Remove the relay to confirm fan stops.

I have a 2004 chyrsler sebring v6 and recently my fan started not shutting off when i turned the car off and now its killing my battery does anyone have any idea what would make the fan stay running even...


Check under the hood and see if you have a decal that says fan may turn on after car is turned off. The fan can run for 10-15min after shut-off.
If it's on for only that length of time and it's killing your battery, you may need a new battery.
If it's not turning off at all, open fuse compartment under the hood, take a small rubber mallet and start to tap the relays. There should be one there for the cooling fan. Once you find it, (the fan will turn off when it's tapped) you can exchange the relay for another (of the same part number - like the wiper relay or A/C relay or something) restart car, let it run til hot, and turn off. If fan shuts off within 10-15 minutes, you need a new relay.

Electric cooling fans run constantly even after vehicle is off


Try diconnecting the two wires on the temp sensor at the bottom of the radiator, you may be able to trace the wires from the fan, it that stops the fan, then replace the sensor and it should be ok
