Radiator Fan continuously running with engine off, discharging battery

Renault Laguna 2.0 - Mod 2000- Automatic- Gulf specs/Dubai.
The radiator Fan is continuously running even when I turn off the engine.
Seems like the computer is activating the high speed relay.
Removing the temperature detector cable (on the radiator) doesnt stop the fan .

It is not the fault: for long time Renault has that concept, that is to prevent engine oveheating when coolant circulation is suddenly stopped.

Radiator fan can continue to work up to 10 minutes after engine is off. You should worry about it only if it wouldn't stop even after 10 minutes.

Renault laguna engine fan not coming on and engine overheats and red warning light comes on and says to stop. coolant ok but everything gets really hot. ok when doing long journey but not when stopping and...


Hi,
The problem would be the radiator cooling fan.
  • Check first the relay, interchange that relay from similar one in the fuse box in the engine compartment.
  • Check the radiator fan motor, pull down the fan motor and directly connect it to the battery.
  • Check the cooling fan thermo switch, it is located underneath/side of the radiator assembly. To check it, just get a paper clip and short the socket connector, fan should run if not the relay has a problem or the fan motor is already malfunctioning.
Hope that helps you out.
Tanks for asking FixYa!

Does the engine fan run all the time on a 2000 grand cherokee


The radiator cooling fan is probably thermostatically controlled. When the engine is hot the fan will probably run for a while when the engine is off. If it continues to run the temperature sensor may be bad. If your battery is running down the fan may be the problem.
