    It's possibly a bad connection. Try a continuity test on the wires. Try activating the fan directly to the battery. Good luck!

1999 BMW 318i engine fan stays on. I have already checked the thermo switch & the a/c pressure switch along with the wiring to the engine ECU & have found no fault. The cause of the fault seems to be the...

when you write that you had found no fault with the switches, what were you trying to find? I'm not familiar with the wiring in your car, but in my vehicle everything is in series and parallel relays. So if one drops out or malfunctions, the fan does not function. Most cars keep the fan running after the car has been stopped from running because of residual heat in the engine. If it runs beyond 15 minutes I would start to be suspicious.

Hello, what does it mean when the fan is still running after the car has been turned off. it's still running after 1 hour

Most electric fan will run after car is shut off when it is hot, to cool the coolant. They shouldn't run for more that 15 min tops. It sound like a timer is malfunctioning.
hope that helps

If you mean the engine coolant fan, then yes most fans will run until the engine cools down to a specific temp.

2003 525I BMW and my battery went dead so I jumped it now my heater fan wont turn off even with my engine off and keys out

sounds like youve welded a relay shut with jumpstarting it with the heater on... check your relays - pull them out one at a time till the fan stops, you have found the relay for your heater= you can give it a knock on the ground and plug it back in to see if it frees the switch inside otherwise replace it - very cheap - stocked at bmw and good auto shops

Why does the heater blower stay on when the car is turned off and the keys removed its a bmw

are you talking about the fan blower inside the car or the fans under the bonnet..? the fans under the bonnet may stay on for a while after the engine is switched off to prevent heatsoak. This is when the engine actually heats up more after switch off due to latent heat within the engine. The fans will remain on until the coolant temperature has fallen and stabilised, then the fans will stop. If the blower fan inside the car keeps running, this may be a feature on the car to assist with heat soak but I would think this is more like a faulty power relay or fan controller if the car has climate control..In this case, my advice would be to consult a qualified autoelectrician.
