Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
I have a 1994 ford taurus. When I turn the engine off the air conditioner continues to run. I have to disconnect the battery to prevent running it dead. Thanks for any help.
The air conditioner compressor is driven via belt by the engine; if the engine is off, the compressor is off = no AC.
You didn't mention which fan is still running but I'll assume it is the one underthe hood, not the one that circulates passenger compartment air.
What is running is the electric fan that assists with cooling of the heat exchanger of the AC system. You probably have a thermal switch or relay that is not releasing.
Locate the relay/fuse box and check if there is a chart of the relays and fuses to locate the one that isn't releasing and try swapping two relays with the same part number on them to check relay function.
