Locate fan relays most likely in plastic box under hood & pull them if you have 2 pull them both. You cant drive without them in will overheat.But wont hurt to drive with them on.

Fan running after car is turned off. car dies and wont start, but its getting power from battery

there is a fan timer module that runs the fan if the temperature is 194 or hotter. if the module,which has internal relays fails the fan will not shut off.if you want a cheap fix,wire a relay in series with one of the fan wires so that the relay only is activated by a source of switched power from the ignition..that relay will pull about 200 ma only,so wire the relay power to a circuit like a switched power outlet,lighter or other circuit with no computers on it to control the relay.the radio circuit switched power is a good one to use,and make sure to use a 25 amp relay ,as the fan pulls about 10 amps.a bosch 4 pin will work fine.

Fan won't shut off

Try hook up the rad fan wires to the wires that power the headlights so that when the vehicle is running the fan would come on, or even try a toggle switch. If this aint working take the car in to the mechanic. hope I could have been some assistance. Charles H

1990 olds 98 blower motor wont shut off stay on when key is turn off

I would start at the fuse. Does the blower motor turn off when the fuse is pulled? A relay is usually used in this circuit and can sometimes "stick" allowing the blower motor to receive constant power. A quick check to see if it is a wiring problem, switch or the relay its self would be to find the blower fan relay and see if there is another one of the value you can swap with it. If the problem goes away, chances are it is the relay but I always like to take a volt/ amp reading to double check my work.
