Check all the ECM fuses, if the fuses are OK try replacing the ASD (Auto Shut Down) relay.

05 rendezvous, where is the fan sending unit located

Are you talking about the radiator cooling fans ? If so there is no fan sending unit as you call it ! The fans are controlled by the BCM/PCM !
The engine cooling fan system is controlled by the body control module (BCM) and the powertrain control module (PCM) or engine control module (ECM). The BCM performs the calculations as to how long, when and what speed the cooling fans should turn on. The BCM then sends a class 2 message to the PCM/ECM to engage the cooling fan relays. If there is a malfunction with the BCM, the PCM/ECM will control the engine cooling fans independently. The engine cooling system consists of 2 electrical cooling fans and 3 fan relays. The relays are arranged in a series/parallel configuration that allows the PCM/ECM to operate both fans together at low or high speeds. The cooling fans and fan relays receive battery positive voltage from the underhood accessory wiring junction block. The ground path is provided at G100.
The BCM and PCM/ECM command Low Speed Fans on under the following conditions:
Engine coolant temperature exceeds approximately 106?°C (223?°F).

A/C refrigerant pressure exceeds 1 310 kPa (190 psi).

After the vehicle is shut off if the engine coolant temperature at key-off is greater than 140?°C (284?°F) and system voltage is more than 12 volts. The fans will stay on for approximately 3 minutes.

The BCM and PCM/ECM command High Speed Fans on under the following conditions:
Engine coolant temperature reaches 110?°C (230?°F).

A/C refrigerant pressure exceeds 1 655 kPa (240 psi).

When certain DTCs set.

My Renault Espace Mk III radiator fans are not switching off, even if you disconect the temperature sensor. both relays are okay. Some say it's the aircon pressure switch. Anyone knows where is the...

turning of the ac switch will indicate if it is an ac problem for the fans.
some cars have the radiator fans running for up to 10 minutes after shut down . Run the fault codes to see if there is a faulty temperature sensor. how it works is this
the sensor is connected to the ecm and has power passing through. it When the sensor sensor a preset coolant temperature the power to the ECM is altered and so the ECM energizes the relays for the fans. If the fans are running continuously after shut down then the ECM still has the relays energized as it is still reading the requirement from the sensor.

2005 nissan xterra shuts off while driving

Check the ECM relay. Nissan has a recall for that relay, for that year. You can swith the relay with your defogger relay which should be next to it. The relay box is located under the hood on the passenger side. Hope this helps. Here's a re call link.

Po540 code

DTC P0540: Intake Air Heater - Incorrect Voltage

The Engine Control Module (ECM) uses an Intake Air Heater (IAH) to warm the incoming air for proper cylinder combustion. The ECM grounds the control coil of the IAH relay to energize the heater during cold weather operation. If the ECM detects voltage on the IAH circuit when the relay is commanded OFF, or incorrect voltage when the relay is commanded ON, this DTC will set.

There are several possible causes for this code including:

Faulty IAH Relay

Faulty IAH Relay Control Circuit

Faulty Line Voltage Reference Circuit

Faulty Heating Element

Faulty ECM
