SOURCE: My radiator fan won't turn off on a 97 mercury Tracer.

its probably a stuck relay locate it and replace it with another most likely that will cure it. check under the hood for a relay center.it should be diagrammed on the lid and use 1 from a different position first pull the one for the cooling fan if it stops that should cure it

When i turn off the car the fan continues to run?


Many cars have this feature. The fan will run for a few minutes at a time until the coolant in the radiator drops below a certain temperature. Most vehicles with this feature will have a warning label on the radiator shroud indicating that the fan may start without warning when the engine or radiator is still hot. The only time you would need to be concerned would be if the fan continues to run without turning itself off, and causing the battery to be drained.

I have a 98 chevy cavalier and when i turn it on my engine fan spins but then stops.. but i have seen other car when they started the engine their fan keep up spining. why does my car does that?


is your car overheating???the fan isnt suppose to run when started(unless engine is hot), it may turn on then shut off. See if it runs when the vehicle gets hot and the A/C is on. Those engines with fans that move all the the time are belt driven. This is why they spin continually.

Radiator Fan Stays On


A simple test would involve disconnecting the fan switch while the fan is on. If the fan then stops the switch has failed. If the fan continues to run remove the relay , if the fan then stops the relay has failed.
Various inputs/outputs at the relay should be confirmed to be 100% certain something strange isn't going on.
Above all be careful of the fan itself , if it's running obviously but if it's not it could start during repair

My cooling fan motor isn't turning on my 2004 Pontiac Sunfire. My car is running hot because of this. How can I change the motor myself without spending a tonne of money on a dealership.


first check if the motor is bad.We ran a hot wire from hot to hot on battery.The fan kicked on.Ours was an inline fuse so ran wire from the positive wire on fan to a wire (hot) to key switch.This way you turn on the key and fan comes on

The fan for the cooling system is not working and is brand new


There is a sensor on the radiator that controls a relay to turn the fan on. There is also a fuse in the fuse panel under the hood. Make sure the radiator is full.
