Question about Cars & Trucks
The cooling fan keeps coming on even when the ignition is turned off and the car has been sat staionary for any length of time. Whats gone wrong?
It sound as though your fan temperature switch might be faulty making the computer thing the engine it hot even though it is not. This is where I would start, it might not end up being the problem, but it is not and expensive part to replace and it is fairly easy to change.

SOURCE: key stuck in ignition
Hi I am vortash I had this once and it was the same vehicle I cut a thin piece of plastic from an old credit card just slightly thinner than the key and applied some superglue to it onl a very tiny amount in the middle of the plastic I applied it with a pin so not to put too much on .. I then eased it into the keyhole next to the key waited 5 minutes for the glue to dry and managed to gently pull it out but if you dont fancy that idea I have also seen it done by drilling a vey small hole in the top of the broken Key with a Dremel and a fine drill bit and a small allen key with loctite on it pushed and tapped into the hole .. that worked also .. hope this helps Regards Vortash

I just started experiencing the same problem. Yes, typically after rainy days, I can never get the interior lights to go out after the ignition key has been removed. The car acts as if there is a door open. Now, my latest problem is with the heater fan. Of course, putting the control in the "off" position will turn it off but you can turn it on and off with no ignition key installed. I'm also having problems with my heater core too so it's been a pain in the but!!
I believe this problem has also caused my battery to die which is why I'm on this site in the first place!! I can't get into the car with the keys and the dead battery won't allow me to unlock the car!! When it rains it pours!!!
