I suspect the cooling fan relay is stuck and letting the battery power continue to "flow".
Locatye the relay in th engine compartment fuse box ans feel if it is warm and then pull it out. the fan should stop running. If it does, replace that relay with an exact relay of the same voltage/amperage.(see your local auto parts store).

I turn my car off, pull the key out, and the fans keep running until battery dies. How can I fix this?


How hot does the engine get in degrees F? Any applicable trouble codes? For radiator fan, have to check wiring diagram for your fan controls. Might be an issue with fan relay? Usually the coolant temp sensor has some control over the fan. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.
I need year--make--model.

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.

How to fix a fan that won't quit running in a 2006 gmc denali


Yes there is a fan fuse, see your owners manual, but will need to be replaced every time you want to drive the truck. The easiest way is to remove the + battery cable to save your battery from dying until you can replace the fan itself. Its not running hot or anything? This can be a safety feature to cool engine if it is.

2002 Envoy died, no power to anything. No click when trying to start it... just nothing. What the heck could it be? I'm thinking alternator. Before it died tonight, if I were to be pushing the


Sounds like your alternator went out or not making good connection at the battery terminals, preventing the battery from being charged. If the battery does not charge, you will use up the battery energy to maintain the vehicle running UNTIL you deplete the battery. the more accesories you have on, the faster it discharges till the point of killing your ignition on your engine. You definitely have a charging issue, more than likely, your alternator went out.

Stop on stop sign engine died


If the engine won't fire up, but your starter turns over, you may want to check your timing unless you have a check engine light on. If the CEL light is on, have the codes scanned.

If the engine won't turn over with the starter or it clicks, have your battery tested at autozone or advanced auto parts. Replace the battery if it is bad. Else, have your starter tested.

If the engine still won't turn over and the battery and starter are tested fine, you may have a blown fuse, bad ignition switch, or a failed relay.

If the engine fires up but randomly dies and starts back up, you either have a failed sensor, failing fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, bad plugs or wires, or a failing ECU.

Engine Fan


I agree. It is the relay switch. The relay switch is located in the underhood fuse box (looks like a square fuse). It is easily removed and replaced. Had the same problem and had to keep pulling the switch to get the fan to turn off. Replaced by dealer and have had no problem with it since
