SOURCE: Coolings fan keeps running

the cooling fans are switched off and on by a relay. either this relay bad and staying on all the time, or something else is bad and telling it to stay on all the time. you might unplug the engine coolant temp sensor and see if the fans switch off. if they do you have a bad temp sensor, if they don't you probably have a bad relay. they will test either for you at most car parts stores. the relay will be in the underhood power distribution box, it plugs in like a fuse. disconnect the battery negative terminal before you start unplugging things from the power distribution box. hope that helps

My fiat Doblo cooling fan stays on when engine is switched off


A significant number of cars have an electric cooling fan supplied by a battery live rather than an ignition live because it is believed the cooling fan should be able to start or to continue running after the engine has been switched off.
Coolant will continue to circulate after switch-off due to thermo-syphon activity and it could reduce mechanical stress on engine components to continue cooling.

Some people modify the cooling system by fitting an additional manual switch to over-ride the thermal switch for use when standing in traffic, for whenever continuous operation is desired or to use in emergency should the thermal switch operation fail.

In the absence of such a modification that has been inadvertently switched on the fault will be due to a faulty thermal switch, a faulty or stuck relay or shorted wiring. Disconnecting the thermal switch should stop the fan and if it does it indicates the switch is faulty. The switch is mostly fitted into the radiator header tank but sometimes is fitted to the bottom tank or the thermostat housing.

My Jeep cherokee fan motor run,when ignition switch is off,but does not run when engine is running.why?


the fans are there to cool the engine but once you stop the car the temperature is not being cooled by movement of air and water circulation via the water pump so the fan cuts in for a short time to stop the temperatures causing damage. when driving the air cools the motor enough to keep it a t the right temp no air movement no cooling.

Cooling fan relay location for a 1992 corvet


the air con fan comes on with the air con switch. the engine cooling fan comes on when the engine temp. censer reaches operation temp. most times the air through the radiator when driving is enough to keep the censer cool and the fan not working if you stop at lights for any length of time it will come on.

Cooling fans atay on always


pull the connection of the fan switch sender unit in the head (2 wires in a square looking plug) probably next to the temperature gauge sender unit. If pulling the plug stops the fan then the problem will most likely be in that switch keeping the ECM thinking that the engine is running hot.

Cooling fan keeps running after engine turned off on a 1996 ef ford falcon


Some fans do keep running after engine is switched off for a short period of time (up to 5 minutes) Check with a service person (ford) to see if that is the case or if you have a faulty sensor.

Check all fuses first. if the fuses are okay, disconnect the engine cooling fan connector and using jumper wires, connect the fan motor directly to the battery and ground. If the fan still doesn't work, replace it. If the fan does work, its relay may be faulty. Check in the engine compartment fuse box for the cooling fan relays. Try switching the cooling fan relays and see if the engine fan comes on and the a/c condensor fan stops working. If so, the engine cooling fan relay is faulty. If the engine fan still doesn't come on with a good relay, then check the engine temperature switch located at the passenger end of the front cylinder head. It is supposed to switch (have continuity) when the engine temperature reaches 205 deg F. You can remove the switch and put it in a pot of close to boiling water (212 deg F). If it doesn't have continuity at that temperature, it is defective.

FAn keeps running when car is shut off. It runs down the battery and wont start


There will be a sensor switch that switches the fan on and off, either on the radiator or close by maybe on the thermostat housing. you should find it by following the wires from the fan. Disconnecting the plug will stop the fan running, but your engine will get hot so watch your temp (you could connect a switch between the two connections on the disconnected plug as a temporary measure but replacing the switch should sort it out. If by chance the fan keeps running when the wire is disconnected from the switch its a short in the wiring. Oh, the fan will run on for a while after the engine is switched off but it should stop after about minute (once it has cooled it down) Check coolant level.

Why does the fan keep running on 2005 jetta after turning off


You are talking about the thermo electric cooling fan, its operation is independent of the car's electical system. It is switched on and off by the engine temperature. When you park, the engine heat soaks upward to heat the thermostat turning the fan on. It will run until the engine cools down and the thermostat switches it off. Quite normal operation.
