OK I believe you are talking about the engine cooling fans ?
Fans only come on when the sensor and relays reach a certain temp, about 215 degrees farenheit.
If you are talking about your HVAC system, and you have a volt meter, then you would have to look at fuses.

2006 Buick overheating. The thermostat is new. Is their a coolant temperature sensor on the 2006 North star engine?

Have you checked to see if the fans are working ? One way to check is by turning your A/C with vehicle running. The fans should run even if the car temperature is cold.
If fan does not work, may want to begin diagnosis on electrical wiring and power supply to fan relay, temperature sensor and fans.

Mercedes Benz GL320 fan turns on after car is turned off. Stays running until your turn the key but you do not have to turn the engine over for it to stay off

On most modern vehicles the engine cooling fans are electric. These fans are thermostatically controlled and will continue to run even after the vehicle is turned off and until the engine cools down. If you feel the fan is running an excessively long time after you turn off the vehicle, I would recommend you have it looked at by the dealer.
Good luck.

Check some of the simple things like coolant level and leaks under the car or under the hood. Then have your car running and observe the front Electric fan by your radiator.

When the engine starts to get hot, this Electric fan should turn on. You may also be able to have the fan turn on when you set your A/C to work. Different makers prioritize different controls and some offer a 2 speed fan design to help when things are really hot.

The Electric fan is suppose to be turned on by a temperature sensor. The sensor will activate a Relay which provides power to the Electric radiator fan. You can obtain a wiring diagram and a fusebox layout drawing by going to and registering your vehicle for free.

Once you have these diagrams you will know what size fuse the Electric fan uses and where it is in the Fusebox. You can take off the radiator Electric fan for testing or just jump some power to it to find out if it is bad.

For the rest of the controls like the Relay, you can use a Voltmeter to trace where the power stops, then fix that part. Remember that for testing the Relay, the Ignition should be on.

The next reason for overheating is a stuck thermostat in the water system. You would need to follow the big hose coming off the top of the radiator and running to the engine. The thermostat should be contained in this housing.

Finally, it is not impossible for the Radiator to go bad and clog up. But manufacturers using aluminum engine parts often have trouble free aluminum radiators.

Fan turns all the time. Replaced fan clutch and it worked okay for one day and now it turns all the time again.

The fan will turn all the time. It will spin at a much slower rate when the air temperature coming from the radiator is cool enough. Once the engine gets warm enough, the air going through the radiator will make the liquid in the center of the fan clutch get more liquidy and that makes the fluid go the outside edge and "grabs" the other part of the fan clutch causing the fan to spin at a much higher rate. Sometimes you can tell by the sound difference. Because my truck has a large fan, when the clutch "engages" it sounds like an airplane powering up at take off. Unless you have electric fans on your vehicle it will spin as long as the engine is running,

Hvac fan runs intermittenly or not at all. It will go from low blow to high to nothing, with air or heat running. Temp contol mod. or relay?

could be the power control relay but I think it's the electrical plug connectors going to the power control relay or the electrical plug connector to the blower fan.

Heater fan not working checked all fuses ok.

If you said you have checked all fuses then you go to the fan motor electrical connector and test for power there when the vehicle is running and you have the sitch turned on..If you have power there then it's time to replace that motor....quick, easy, and painless, get back to me if ya have any questions...THX!!!

Our 1998 Chevy Venture is overheating. All fluids okay.

if you are not sure if it is the fan motor you can disconnect the plug to the fan and run a jumper wire with a positive and ground from the battery to the fan plug and it it comes on than the motor is good. and you have a bad wire or sensor. and one easy fix for that would be to get a toggle switch put it in the cab and run wires to a power sorce and then to the fan wires. i have done it once so you would have to keep an eye on the temp and turn the fan on manually. that would be a cheap and temporarily fix

Disconnect the fan plug and run a jumber wire from your battery to the fan plug. If the fan turns on then its a short or a re-lay.

If your vehicle has electric fans on the radiator, turn the AC unit on and see if the fans run, if they do not then you have a power issue to the fan of the motor is shot. Normally its a fusable link on the supply line or the thermo sensor that is the issue. If your fan is belt driven try moving the fan and see if there is some resistance. There should be some. Next if its belt driven start the car open the hood and rev up the rpms and then while watching the fan turn the car off. If the fan spins for a long time then replace the fan clutch.

Radiator fan stays on all the time and car runs rough

The fan relay may be malfunctioning (the fan relay is what actually switches the fan on and off and gets its signal from the ECM, which in turn gets its signal from the temp sensor) testing/replacing the relay and temp sensor would be the best thing to start with,... unless you notice any additional (non factory) wire attached to the power wires to the fan.  Sometimes folks, in an attmpt to fix  an overheating or fan relay problem, attach a ignition switched positive lead from the fusebox or other switched source to the positive poer lead on the fan,.. making the fan run whenever the ignition is switched on.
