Coolant fans will run continuously if the fan relay is bad. even with car ignition off. this may cause them to stay on even when the vehicle is off, God Bless!

The relay that powers the motor is stuck in the on position. Or the sensor that controls the relay is fubar. Till issue resolved simply disconnect the fan when ignition is off or hook up a manual on/off toggle switch.

Open my hood on 2005 Cadillac srx battery dead keys don't work


Plug a charger into the cigarette lighter or connect a charger to the frame and the positive wire to the large starter wire under the car. This will give enough power to operate the locks.

2011 Cadillac SRX will not start! Was running fine, parked it and came back out to move it and it wouldn't start. It would turn on at first but not start and then quickly drained the battery completely. ...


I am betting your alternator is shot and not charging the battery. The symptom would be everything is dead on the dash and lights. Battery will need to be fully charged and alternator replaced. Make sure to have the alternator checked for free at an auto parts store first.

2005 cadillac srx dash was going crazy/dead battery


Make sure your that the transmission is in Park "P" position in order to removed the key. I will suggest you to take your battery to your local Auto Parts to run a diagnostic to confirm that the battery will not longer hold power. If the battery is dead it means that it is time to replaced. Good Luck!

You probably have a bad relay 9burned out) that has overheated and fused terminals-under the hood in the power center box, it should be marked-pull it to stop the fan, and you can probably use another less needed relay to get you buy until you get another. The fan is probably drawing too much power, however and will need to be checked for load to see if it is spec or you will continue to have this problem.

2001 passat electric fan runs continously until battery is dead


There are extra cooling pumps that some foreign cars have that run for a designated time after the engine is shut off. I had a Mini cooper made by BMW that had it. If you hear it running for a while, but then it shuts off, thats normal. If it stays on for ever and never shuts off, I honestly don't know what to tell you

Fan keeps running after engine is shut off


It is normal for the fan to run when engine is off. Engine temps actually rise when the engine is shut off, the heat will rise through the engine compartment. So a Coolant temp sensor controls when the fan shuts on and off, obviously based on the temps of the anti-freeze. The fans are a high draw item, but It would take much longer than an hour breakfast for the battery to run dead. I would check out the battery and charging system first. Is the CEL on? Let me know and we will trouble shoot from there. Thank you for using fixya.com
