Cooling fan I know that the fan is supposed to stay on until temp drops when I turn off car, but it stays on so long it runs my battery down. I charged the battery and after a few days it started again. what are my options. I was told it could be the relay switch or fan sending unit. If so where are they located. added note....I checked all the fuses

Your option if you have no wiring diagram
or experience with vehicles, is a repair shop
Disregard anything your told when it comes to
vehicles, as they have to be properly diagnosed
to find a problem,any conversation or attempt
to throw parts at something you know nothing about,
is a waste of time

SOURCE: Acura MDX A/C won't come on

I went to an Acura dealer to buy the transistor for the rear A/C unit. The service advisor told me that the problem with the front A/C was probably due to a defective front transistor / resistor. I bought that part too.

The front transistor is located next to the blower motor under the dash on the passenger's side. It is secured by three or four small bolts. The one on the bottom left is very close to the carpet and the most difficult to get off and put back on.

The rear transistor is located behind the carpeted trim panel on the center console (driver's side). The carpeted trim panel is secured by clips only - there are no screws, so remove it carefully starting at the side near the accellerator pedal. Once the panel has been removed, reach inside a small hole in the metal frame to access the rear transistor. It is removed by twisting it and pulling it out. The hole in the frame is small and you might find pliers helpful.

After replacing both parts, the front and rear A/C are working. Apparently these transistors are common failures. If the A/C is out in your Acura MDX and the fuse checks good, a new transistor will likely solve your problem.

When I turn the engine off the engine cooling fan stays on and does not shut off


depending on the engine temperature the fan is supposed to remain on after you turn the engine off, until the engine reaches a preset cooler temperature. when it reaches cooler temperature usually within 5 minutes or so it should cut off... if you cut it off and it is running 30 minutes later.. then there is a problem with the fan relay or temperature sending unit.

Cooling fan continues running after car is not running


Its supposed to,, unless it just stays running,, on newer cars the temp fan will run even with the car off, and can start while the car is parked too, if it runs on and on and sucks the life out of your battery , then a stuck fan switch (usually near the radiator) can cause this problem if the fan stays running a long time

With the A/C on the coolant fan should run constantly to cool the A/C condenser in front of the radiator. With the A/C off the coolant fan should come on around 210 degrees and stay on until the coolant temperature drops to between 190 and 200 degrees. Hope this helps.

I turn my car off and take the keys out but the fan keeps running?


if the car is warm the fans are designed to continue to run untill temp drops to normal temp and then fans shut off. This is a normal operation of the fan nothing to worry about. Now if they stay running for more than 10 minutes you have a problem.

I have a 2003 mini cooper radiator fan comes on "after" the engine is off...It is loud and stays on for about 5 minutes


It is supposed to. The temperature sensors for your cooling system have power all the time and when the temperature sensor reads a temp that it high it will turn the fans on until the temp drops. Hope this helps.

Is my fan supposed to remain on after I turn off the car


The fan will stay on until the motor temperature reaches a low enough temp. This is to prevent damage. As long as it does not stay on for more than a few minutes it is normal

Cooling fan stays on when car is off. Took off battery cables to stop it. Is it suppose to run after cars off until engines cool?? Thanks, Chloe


It would be normal for the cooling fans to run after you shut the car off because the power to the fans is turned on and off by a thermostat and not the key. Don't worry about it unless it runs for more than 15-20 minutes when you shut the car off. It may run that long in summer if the car is hot but less in the winter. Hope this helps.
