Fan keeps running


The cooling fan keeps running with the key on because the temperature switch on the bottom of the radiator is bad, the switch has an electrical connector with two wires on it, remove the connector, put a jumper wire between the two terminals if the fan stops replace the switch.
If you have the problem with the interior heater fan let me know, not sure which fan you mean.

VW Jetta fan, wipers, headlights work until engine starts. Then they do not always function.


I would suspect you have a defective ignition starter switch, this is the main switch the the ignition key cylinder operates and it powers up the while electrical system,. It is under the steering column covers.

I turn car off and something keeps running sounds like /fan/electric motor drains my battery.


When you switch off pull the fuses out one at a time to isolate the guilty circuit that is running on after shut down. There are are only a few circuits that are powered when the car is off (alarm, interior lights etc.) so you will need to check if there is short or switch malfunction that would allow the power drain.

Electric fans runs after car is shut off, drains battery


Having the fan run on for a bit after the engine has stopped is not abnormal in itself, but 20 minutes sounds excessive.

If the fan does eventually shut off, I'd consider changing the thermoswitch (this is a sensor screwed into the radiator somewhere near the bottom, with a pair of wires connected to it - to change it, you'll need to drain the cooling system).

If the fan stays on continuously until the battery is completely flat, see what happens when you unplug the wires from the thermoswitch. If this stops the fan, you need to replace the thermoswitch. If it doesn't, then you need to examine the wiring associated with the switch and the fan, looking for damaged insulation.

For windows, try to clean the relay from the engine compartiment, may be is an imperfect contact. About the interior fan is normaly, at volvo s60, because it has a sensor, and the fan start to clean your ventilation sistem. It runs only 7 minutes, than it's stops. you don't have to wory. Sorry for, my english, but i'm from Romania. I hope you understand
