That could be a normal condition. On some cars, the fan will stay on after the key is off, if the engine is still too hot.
There's also a thermal sensor feeding the relay, it could be that.
Hope this helps.

The most common cause is a faulty fan relay. The relay should be off if the key switch is off.

Bad radiator


Step_1 disconnect inlet (top hose) & outlet bottom) hose. I'm assuming you're replacing a corroded radiator. They now offer copper or plastic radiators that have high resistance to corrosion. If you replace with alluminum or steel radiator, do a flush job yearly with replace with the green radiiator solution or the red one if you replaced with aluminum radiator.
Step_2 disconnect the electric fan. first unhook the wire connection, then loosen the 4 screws that's holding the fan assembly against the radiator.
Step_3 Loosen the bolts holding the radiator unit. When re-attaching the new radiiator, install new hoses as well. Fill the radiator through the pressure relief cap with 60-40 radiator to water mixture. The instructions say 50-50, but 60-40 is a stronger solution that prevents freezing, boiling, & corrosion buildup. It there's a coolant filter, replace this unit as well. It looks like an oil filter cartridge.
Preventive miantainance: Perform a coolant flush every 50K miles. Most car manufacturers recommend 30K miles or 2 years, which ever comes first, but that's to boo$t revenue for car dealership service centers. IMO the max is 70K or 2 years. When you notice the temperature is overheating in the summer months, an engine radiator flush AND replacing the thermostat is the solution. Most shops will say "you need a new water pump" and the scammer had not even performed a diagnostic test. The water pump will last the life of the engine (140K+ miles) unless the car had run dry without radiator fluid. The radiator fluid lubricates the water pump. Running the engine dry (or low of) without radiator fluid damages the water pump. Running tap water instead of 50-50 or 40-60 radiator fluid mixture will also cause premature wear on the water pump because water by itself is insufficient lubricant on the water pump.

Radiator Sealant will it cause problems down the road


It probably won't get any worse than it is now. Sealer is supposed to plug leaks when it comes in contact with air. Otherwise it stays suspended in the coolant.
You may want to do another flush in 6 months and then just keep an eye on it. Make sure the radiator and overflow tank are both full of liquid coolant.

There could be several reasons that may cause an engine to overheat. It sounds like you have covered the most important ones. Thermostat,radiator and water pump. Hopefully you do not have internal damage, cracked head, head gasket, or a cracked block. I would try flushing the heater core and pay close attention to what comes out. You know, is it clogged with stop leak or rust. Then while I was flushing that I would drain the entire system and put in some Prestone super radiator flush. You just add plain water with it and run your vehicle for about 10 minutes. You then empty your cooliant system and refill with antifreeze. The flush works pretty well and if there is an obstruction from a previous owner putting stop leak in the system it generally will clean it out.
BTW, are you sure the thermostat is in properly? Not upside down? I think I would start there before I went through all of the work of flushing the system. It actually sounds like from everything you've done already, that's possible. Hey it does happen once in awhile. Was this car overheating when you bought it? If so, maybe the previous owner put it in upside down, and when you changed it put it in the same way by accident.
Hope this helps.

Cooling fans


flush and clean your radiator.you can get radiator flush and cleaner at the parts store. if that doesn't work take it and have it cleaned . that's if your fan and thermostat is working properly, which they probably are unless i'm misunderstanding you.
