Question about Honda Pilot
I have a 2006 Pilot that has an issue with the cooling fan (driver's side fan behind radiator). When the ignition is turned off, sometimes the fan turns on (or stays on) for 30 sec to 1.5 min, then turns off. This has happened for the past 2 months. I've checked other websites, and they suggested testing the relay by exchanging with the condenser fan (same part number). I've done that and the problem still persists with the other relay. The temperature gage in the car reads normal. What else could be the cause of the persistent cooling fan?
How is that switch wired you know that it is controled by ground not + voltage

SOURCE: Cooling fan wont work
The water temp sensor is located near the thermostat housing. This sensor is what tells the ECM to turn the fan on/off. The water temp sending unit is located near the same area. You know you have the correct sensor is because the water temp sensor has a 2 prong plug. The water temp sending unit only has 1 prong.

As long as the fan eventually shuts off this isn't a problem,the fan will continue to run for a bit after the car is turned off,once it reaches a set temprature it will turn off.

The fan may run with jumper wires but if it''s blowing the 30 Amp Maxifuse it's needs a new or used fan motor.It's pulling too many amps.I have almost never seen a fan relay concern.Only other thing you may check is the wiring down near the fan shoud I have seen the 2 wires get loose from the conduit & melt onto exhaust manifold.Hope tHis Helps

It depends, how long is it staying on after you shut the car off and how hot is the temp guage when you turn it off? The fan circuit is separate from the ignition and is designed to run until the engine reads a specific temp irregardless of whether the ignition is on or not. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Cheers, but the fan stays on till battery runs flat,,,,,,,Gixxer Tim,,,,"
had replaced: both cooling fans, fan control module, coolant temp
sensor, fan switch, 4 terminal connectors. No trouble codes reported in
VW electronic diagnostic test. 2 different VW dealers and and my
mechanic threw in the towel. Any suggestions greatly appreciated."
This is a common problem with the VW..and no one has an answer WHY. (including VW mechanics)
THIS IS A RECALL ISSUE and should be implemented
