Fan by the radiator stays on after the car is turned off

I came home last night and turned off my 1999 Ford Contour and the fan located in back of the radiator keeps running for about an hour then shut off. What could be the problem. I don't have the $'s to take it to a shop to repari.

Some models will allow the fan to continue to run after the key is turned off Check to see if there is a sticker somewhere near the radiator that says "fan may start at anytime even when engine is not running"of something like that.......if not it is probably the fan sensor switch.........they are usually either in the intake manifold or sometimes in the radiator.(also in the housing near the thermostat)

I need to replace the radiator on my 1999 contour, does it come out the top or bottow?


It comes out through the top....Make sure the engine is cold first.
  • Disconnect the cooling fan electrics.
  • Remove the cowling fasteners if required
  • Remove the bottom hose clamp
  • Remove the top hose clamp
  • Open the drain tap or simply remove the lower hose.
  • If the hoses are hard to remove, gently twist back and forth until they have become loose and then remove.
  • Un-bolt the two radiator clamps on the top, which hold the radiator and lift it out carefully.
  • When replacing it's a good idea to replace the hoses and the clamps together with a new pressure cap.

Electric fan stayed on last night after returning home , the jeep wouldn't start , jumped it with a starter box an it died as soon as i took my foot off the accelerator


that's because the battery was too dead to maintain operation you need 9 volts at the battery for the computer to run the injectors,the alternator was dumping all it could into the battery to revive it.and at idle it just wasn't enough. seems like you have a bad fan relay and a very dead battery. hope this helps you.

As far as I know, this is normal. When I get out of mine, I hear the fan run for about a minute after I shut the car off.
