Check the fan relays. At the engine compartment. One may be stuck and keeping the fan running.Tap it a little bit before removing it. If it turns of , replace the relays.

Radiator fan will not shut off


In some vehicles, the radiator cooling fan is controlled independently by a thermostatic switch. What you perceive as a problem actually is normal operation. When the temperature reaches a certain point, the fan turns on. When you stop and turn off the ignition, the fan continues to run until the temperature decreases to a point where the fan turns off

Fans wont shut off when ignition is off 99 prelude


Some cars are designed to allow the fans to run even with the key off until the engine and radiator cool down. If it continues to run after 19-15 minutes you may have a sticking fan relay, usually located in the fuse box in the engine compartment, just replace it and it should take care of your problem

2007 Mercedes Benz R 320 blower fan comes on when ignition is shut off


If you're talking about the radiator fan and it's electric, then it's normal for it to run after ignition is turned off. Fans will typically run for a few minutes to cool down the radiator coolant then shut off automatically.

It is 37 degrees outside so there is the engine is definitely not running hot. However, tonight after a 15 minute drive my radiator fan kept running for about 5 minutes after shutting the car off and...


Regardless of the temprature outside , an engine can definitely overheat if the thermostat is bad , or the water pump , or the radiator. The engine temp sensor is probably malfunctioning and sending a faulty signal to the fan relay.

Whay does my radiator fan stay on whaen i turn the car off


It stays on to continue cooling the contents of the radiator, which remain hot even after you turn your car off. When the coolant is cooled, the fan will turn off.

Why does my radiator cooling fan remain on after I turn off the ignition?


The car has a computer that is linked to the engine. It is hard wired to it meaning the computer is always on. Upon shutting your engine off taking the keys in hand the computer is still on sensing the engines temperture. The coolant sensor will send power to the relay to keep the fans running untill cooled down enough. Then the sensor will cut off power to the relay shutting off the fans

Cooling fan in Honda


On my 1996 Accord (4cylinder), this was caused by a tube inside my radiator overflow tank dropping off into the tank - the radiator would have too little fluid in it, so the fans would run a LONG time after shutting the thing down. The tank is in the front left, a white cap with a black tube running out of the cap to the radiator. Underneath the cap there should be a foot or so of hose - this is what fell off of mine.

Hooked it back up, made sure enough fluid was in the radiator, and no more problem.

The dashboard coolant heat gage will show the high temperature, also.

My radiator fan will not shut off. the engine is off and the key is out of the ignition. I even disconnected the battery and the re-connected it but the fan came back on. What is wrong?


The fan Should Turn off By itself after it cools of the Motor for a Little While. If not you might want to Check the Fuses and Relays. I Think that it is Probably Ok though. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
