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.

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.

My fan will not shut off when I shut the engine off


How long does it run? some cars will run the fan for a few minutes to ensure that too much heat does not build up under the hood. Wait for 5 minutes and see if it is still running when the engine is off. If it is you may have a bad temperature sensor. Does the engine temperature gauge work properly?

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

you don`t say where they keep breaking.if its around the bolts then you can use a thicker washer this might help.if the tracking system that the seat slides on then if there is room you might be able to weld a re-enforcing plate to the system where it cracks to stop it.

Cooling fan runs even after motor turned off


This is perfectly natural for the fan to continue running when the motor is turned off. I have seen them run for up to 15 minutes depending on how hot the day and the engine are. If it is not cutting off at all then you may have a problem in your heat sensor.

1987 Buick Grand National losing power, changed


Symptoms Like this usually point to the Fuel pump.

Also these cars suffer from inferior wiring to the fuel pumps and a substantial Voltage drop is noted between the Fuel pump relay and the Pump harness.

The fix for this is a "Hotwire" Kit

Fuel pump kits with a Hotwire kit are available at numerous Buick performance Vendors but the best stuff in my opinion come from Racetronix,com

You should also change the Prom Chip in the ECM to a modern
Chip from Turbotweak.
This will improve driveability greatly.
