    My car has never done this before that is my concern. Is it normal for a car to do this?

I wouldn'tworry too much about the fan running after you turn off the vehicle, most newer cars are equipped to do that. As far as running your battery down, the power that the fan uses after the vehicle is turned off will actually run off the surface charge of the battery, you shouldn't have any problems with it draining your battery. Hope this helps.

    You may want to check your coolant level as well, it may be low and causing the fan to stay on longer to cool off the radiator due to the lack of coolant and it getting hotter.

In my 2004 ford focus I turn my fan on and it runs for a little bit, then stops. About a minute later I smell burning. I turn the dial to 0 and the smell goes away.

Your blower motor is bad and overheating. You need to replace it. What you are smelling is the resin on the windings of the motor.

When I shut my car off the fan under the hood keeps running. Then my car dies.

The fan will keep running long enough to cool the engine coolant. Sometimes it will take several minutes for the fan to shut off after the car has been turned off. It is a built-in feature in order to make sure the engine cools enough while sitting idle. Then, when you say the car dies, do you mean the fan shuts off and everything is quiet? If so, that is normal.

Coolant fan continues to run while van is off......

most modern vehicles have fans that can run for 5-10 minutes after the ignition has been turned off if the engine is hot.
if the fan runs for more than 15-20 minutes there may be a problem with the temperature sensor for the fan.
this would normally be located on the side of the radiator and is fairly easy to change.

if you need more detailed instructions on changing this then please feel free to ask, but if the fan turns itself off within 10-15 minutes then there is probably nothing to worry about.

Engine running -hot or cold- in park or drive the engine rpms go to aprox,500-400 and then stalls. cycle the kry and the engine will run for a while and then start the cycle again

Clean the temperature sensor wire connector.
Replace the temp sensor.
Check the condition of the sensor wire cut(s) or short onto the engine block.
Monitor the fan operation with the hood open during warm up (0-15 minutes.) It should ran after the engine coolant temp get above 195F +.

It's 12 degrees outside, how long should i leave the engine of my 2007 ford focus running to warm up?

Wait for the temp gauge to lift off of the low end stop. The car is then warm enough to drive. Be very gentle on the trans for the first 20 miles or so, because the transmission relies on engine heat to warm up the trans fluid. Cold trans fluid is very dense and can cause the transmission to slip, causing gear damage.

Radiator fan runs after car is turned off. Only occurs when A/C is run for more than 10-15 min. Shuts off after a few minutes, but is concerning.

That is nothing to worry about the fan remains running after the vehicle shuts off in order for the engine to cool down. Once the motor cools down sensors trigger the fan to shut it off.

Eletric fan runs when focus 16 tdci is turned off 2006 model

This is normal for a car that has an electric fan system for the cooling system. There is a sensor that operates based on engine temp. When you turn your vehicle off the coolant stops flowing and the water temp goes up in the engine block. The electric fan may run for approximately two or so minutes.
