You have a relay switch for your fan. The relay switch to your fan is broke.

Cooling fan keeps running after turning the car off.


You can unplug the fan so it doesnt run the battery dead. Typically what happens with these vehicles is that a failing radiator fan burns out the solid state fan relay, this can also cause the relay to short and supply continuous voltage to the fan assembly. The relay is located below the passenger headlamp but you will need to remove the front bumper to access it.

When I turn off my ignition, my heater fan will keep running


I just started experiencing the same problem. Yes, typically after rainy days, I can never get the interior lights to go out after the ignition key has been removed. The car acts as if there is a door open. Now, my latest problem is with the heater fan. Of course, putting the control in the "off" position will turn it off but you can turn it on and off with no ignition key installed. I'm also having problems with my heater core too so it's been a pain in the but!!

I believe this problem has also caused my battery to die which is why I'm on this site in the first place!! I can't get into the car with the keys and the dead battery won't allow me to unlock the car!! When it rains it pours!!!

My engine fan won't turn off. It runs until the battery dies. Is there anything I can check or do about this?


I suspect the cooling fan relay is stuck and letting the battery power continue to "flow".
Locatye the relay in th engine compartment fuse box ans feel if it is warm and then pull it out. the fan should stop running. If it does, replace that relay with an exact relay of the same voltage/amperage.(see your local auto parts store).
