Radiator fan not switching off when engine not running flattening battery


That an electrical short. The fan relay or the fan switch sounds like the troublemaker. when the ignition is off, the fan shut down.The relay is an "on & off" switch for the fan.If the relay is "sticking" in the on position, the fan will continue to run until the battery dies. Same scenario if your Polo is equipped w/ a fan switch. If the switch is stuck on, the fan runs. There's the short. get someone u trust to ck that out. Good Luck, happens all the time.

Blower continues running after car is shut off


Which blower?

Lots of manufacturers have wired the electric radiator cooling fan circuit to the battery direct rather than through the ignition switch controlled supply.

Cars of this type often have the fan running for several minutes after switching off and the fan can restart again later for a short time as the mass of the engine continues to release heat into the coolant and the thermo-syphon action causes circulation.

My fiat Doblo cooling fan stays on when engine is switched off


A significant number of cars have an electric cooling fan supplied by a battery live rather than an ignition live because it is believed the cooling fan should be able to start or to continue running after the engine has been switched off.
Coolant will continue to circulate after switch-off due to thermo-syphon activity and it could reduce mechanical stress on engine components to continue cooling.

Some people modify the cooling system by fitting an additional manual switch to over-ride the thermal switch for use when standing in traffic, for whenever continuous operation is desired or to use in emergency should the thermal switch operation fail.

In the absence of such a modification that has been inadvertently switched on the fault will be due to a faulty thermal switch, a faulty or stuck relay or shorted wiring. Disconnecting the thermal switch should stop the fan and if it does it indicates the switch is faulty. The switch is mostly fitted into the radiator header tank but sometimes is fitted to the bottom tank or the thermostat housing.

Radiator fans


I dont know what year model you have but the newer one will run when car is turned off to cool radiator. Maybe you have a radiator problem if this just started to happen. Is the car over heating. Did you check radiator fluid or thermostat. I dont know much about your car and year model but i would do these checks. Maybe radiator needs to be flushed. You can use aluminum brite for to flush. Can buy it at O Reiley's. I had to flush my daughters radiator about 10 times when we bought it used, fithy. Looks brand new. Please dispose of chemicals properly. It is an acid.

Radiator fan will not shut off


In some vehicles, the radiator cooling fan is controlled independently by a thermostatic switch. What you perceive as a problem actually is normal operation. When the temperature reaches a certain point, the fan turns on. When you stop and turn off the ignition, the fan continues to run until the temperature decreases to a point where the fan turns off

Fans wont shut off when ignition is off 99 prelude


Some cars are designed to allow the fans to run even with the key off until the engine and radiator cool down. If it continues to run after 19-15 minutes you may have a sticking fan relay, usually located in the fuse box in the engine compartment, just replace it and it should take care of your problem

Radiator fan does not turn to


The thermo switch is fitted into the radiator low down on the left side (when sitting in drivers seat). It should have 2 thick wires going to it. If these are pulled off and joined together the fan should run continuously, even with the ignition switched off. It is reasonably easy to change if you have the correct size ring spanner. Dont forget to refill the radiator with antifreez when you have finnished. the part is readily available from most after market parts suppliers

Both radiator fans run continuosly when the battery is connected.


if it didn't do it before you had the fans replaced i'd say that they forgot to re-connect a wire to the ignition or something, causing it to have a continuous current, take it back to where you had the fans done and they should fix it free of charge, after all they did it.

the fan is controlled by the A/C as well as engine,so it could be a switch on the A/C its in the pipe somewhere and when the pressure builds up it turns the fan on ....or a sensor on the cylinder head thats packed up or just a rely arced across and melted contacts together.
