Either the blower switch wiring has been altered, or you have a short to power in that circuit. The dash controls are not supposed to have power without the key. Are there any other functions that stay on with the key off? Stereo? turn signals? This would indicate a problem in the ignition switch, which is where all power must go through first.

Resistor switch. The rotary switch on the dash is very, very uncommon. It is also not the blower, because it works.

SOURCE: how to remove broken key in Ignition switch

If your key is magnetic and it is not jambed in there to much you may be able to get a magnet and pull it out. If it is stuck pretty bad you will have to take the steering column apart, but trying calling a lock smith first, he may be able to help.

Blowers constantly blowing even without key in the ignition


You definitely have a short somewhere in the circuit. I dont know if its in the air speed control knob, the fan motor, the key switch, or a relay somewhere. If the fan kept blowing even after you removed the fuse, my first guess would be somewhere under the hood in a relay, or the key switch. Because everything usually turns off when you turn off the ignition key. But I am no Saab expert and electrical issues are a real pain, no matter what the make of car.
I have had that problem with a car before and ended up, putting a on/off switch in the blower motor power wire and just turned it off and on that way when I needed it. Not really the true solution, but it worked for my 25 year old car at the time. Good Luck!

I have a Volvo 2004 S80 whose blower fan motor stays on, even after the ignition switch has been turned off. What gives? Is this a normal function or should it go off like everything else when you shut it...


Not True. I have a 2004 S60 and a std features is that the blower motor will run from 10 minutes to an hour after the engine has been turned off, This is to dry the evaporator in the dash and avoid musty odors.

If it drains your battery dead there are possible issues; 1) a weak battery that needs replacing or 2) a faulty power stage/transistor unit ont he blower fan.

The transistor unit has power and ground and a digital signal from the control unit. When the transistor sticks, the the blower will not stop when the ignition is turned off.

When I turn my car off the air conditioner still runs-I needed a jump the other day because it ran all night and wore the battery down.


OK, if the relay for the A/C fan is bad, then the radiator's fan will keep running after turning off the ignition. Also, if the fan for ventilation of the A/C in the cabin stays on after the ignition is turned off, the relay for that is bad.

Good luck on this repair.

Sounds like the blower resistor module needs to be replaced. Could also be the switch.

It starts but have to push key up


I believe your problem is the igniton switch itself. It may not be seated properly or the pin didn't connect to it holding it in place sufficiently
