Ok. that makes more sense. the relay should be in the fuse box under the hood. it should have a diagram under the cover to help you locate it. that is most likely the problem.

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.

Dodge caravan cooling fan


from your problem description the radiator cooling fan does not come on. dodge and chrysler minivans had a problem with the cooling fan relay being faulty. I recommend replacing it with a good quality aftermarket part, not one made in china if possible!

Radiator fan stays on even after engine is off and cold


A thermal switch controls cooling fan operation independently. If the cooling fan keeps running long after shutdown, that switch may have become too independent and will have to be replaced

Key is out of ignition switch, motor stops but cooling fan still running with whistling sound in my 1997 Dodge Caravan


Cooling fans running is okay. vehicles "superheat" during the time immediately after shutdown. With more aluminum in engine construction, major temp swings are problematic.

I presume that the fans eventually shut down...this is normal and very much needed.

The cooling fan keeps running even when the car is shut off. It keeps running until the battery gives out.


The fan is suppose to run until engine cools off. If battery drains before cooling down a good place to start is a weak battrey
