SOURCE: 1994 c280 2 a/c fans stay on when a/c is off

The fans don't run until car hits certain temps when warm. They are timed. Shouldn't be running constantly, only when car idles for very long time should they come on.

If it barely ever comes on when idleing, the relays or temp sensor could be shot.

The 2 AC fsnd turns on when the Engine temperarure hot. It receives the signal from ECU throught the Engin temperature sensor ( Coolant). Your case happens since the Engine Temp sensor went bad. At beginning the temp sensor can not produce any resistance just like open then ECU thinking engine hot turns on the Fan. When your engine ia about 85, it is a normal temp then the sensor could produce some resistance matching the look up tabel for the ECU, then the ECU turn off the Fan. Some pepople has it run all the way since the wire contact to the sensor was off. Replace the Engin Temp sensor to take care of the problem.
You have 2 temp sensors on top engine, one for your temp read out, one for the fan purpose. If you don't know which one, wait for your temp at 85 and the fan is stopping, then unplug one, imediately the fan goes on, that the one. Good luck.

I've turned ignition off yet can hear fan running at front of engine for a minute or two after

Hello Stephen,

So long as it is just a minute, or two that is fine, no problem whatsoever. I have had problems with some Fords which utilise the Bosch smart fan via CAN bus systems, but this normally causes the fan to start at 3 4ths speed indelicately on switching the ignition on, even when stone cold. The fan isn't running from cold in the morning is it.. As in, before you even start the engine..

The radiator cooling fan is always on ?

Is your AC on (AC compressor activated)? Try switching that off and see if it still runs.

A/C blows hot air intermittently

this is clear that your aux fan cooling your condensor is not working ,your a/c system is overheating and with speed you are forcing air through your condensor doing the job of the fan.
