    I work out of my home state. And while I was away my wife put the window down to get the mail and it wouldn't go back up. She later went out there to start it and the battery was dead. She charged it up, starteed it and let it run for about an hour. Later the battery was dead again.

    When I got home I hooked the charger up and instantly the blower motor kicked on and will NOT shut off. how can I fix this???

    This doesn't sound like a valid answer... just removing the resister will break the current. The problem (Logicicaly) would be a short in the ignition switch. As that is what would cause power to continue on to the blower motor with the key off.

    Are you talking about the inside heater blowers/fans?

Check your resister in the duct just in front of the blower! Follow the wire from your blower to it and un plug it

Why does my heater fan not turn off in 07 sprcttra?

The heater/blower fans in cars made since at least 1982 are designed to run at all times, even if in so-called "off" position. This may be because this fan is also for general air circulation and for the A/C. Don't know why. In the summer I would actually unplug the fan wire at the firewall (this was on a 1982 Buick). This was the advice of my mechanic. He said wiring in a toggle was more trouble than just unplugging the wire.

Radiator fan running when the cockpit heater is ON

If you you are running it in Defrost the A/C will turn on to dry the air thus turning on the Rad fan also check to see if your A/C switch is turned on.

My 02 nissan pathfinder interior fan runs even when not turned on.checked all fuses they seem to be fine.

If fan still runs when all your heater control knobs and buttons are off, it is likely a bad heater fan switch. Unless you have something like a body control module found on newer cars that has some control over interior functions. If not, try a new heater fan switch. Good luck.

I disconnected the battery and know the truck runs really rough. even worse when heater fan is on

It will definitely run very rough. The battery regulates most of the electrical power drawn when running and if all components(electrical pumps/coils, etc) do not get a steady input then the engine firing also gets affected. Specially if heater fan is turned on which normally draws current from the battery itself. Put the battery back asap

Heater fan

not necessarily could be something else try jumping the fan with direct current from battery and see if it runs could be in fan switch or could be a fuse causing the problem if it does not run with direct current from battery then it is the motor.

Heater fan will not turn off even when car is turned off 94jimmy

Replace the Resistor located near the blower motor.Under the dash. It may be a little hard to get to. it has a plug of four wires and a couple of screws you have to remove. The reason your other problems are happening is because you disconnect the battery and the Computer (ECU) deprograms itself .

1998 F-150 4.6L 4X4 heater fan runs with truck shut off

I would have someone check the thermal limiter normally on the passanger side down under the glovebox because if this is shorted out it can cause this problem if you continue to have this problem with the speedo cable it is normally the cable going to the wheel or the transmission itself where the gears are worn down and it would cause this problem

Running noise in the dash, runs down a new battery

Ah ha! The intake valve for the interior temp. control was continuing to run after the engine was off. It was making noise (like a running fan). I removed it. So what the auto temp does not work. It is an old car... if you get hot turn down the air, if you get cold, turn up the heater. Removing this did not affect the effectiveness of the heat or air.
