Some cars are designed to have the fan run for a few minutes after you turn the car off. But if doesn't stop until the battery drains, then it might be a faulty switch or temperature sensor.

Or, if the fan stays running when the engine and radiator are cool you have a very cheap problem: The fan thermostat is stuck closed. A new thermostat will fix the problem--the hardest part of replacing it is finding it. Follow the wires from the fan to the switch--it is usually on the bottom tank of the radiator. Drain the radiator first and save the coolant to put back in after you replace the thermostat. NEVER OPEN A HOT RADIATOR.

If that wasn't it then check the following:

  • Check to see that your coolant level is correct. Top up as necessary.
  • Lay your hand on the radiator (with the engine off) and feel if it is as hot at the top as it is at the bottom. If not, your radiator may be clogged and need flushed or replaced. (Flushing is cheap. Replacing the radiator isn't)
  • Do you get heat from the heater? Leave it turned on high and see if your fan stays running the next time. If it takes care of the problem that could mean you have a kinked radiator hose.

Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this).

AC Compressor running but no cold air?


If no air is coming out, the blower fan is not coming on. Find the blower fan, follow the wires back from the blower motor to a plug, unplug it, set it so the blower should be on, check for voltage across the plug. If there's about 12 volts, but the blower doesn't make any noise when you plug it back in, the motor has a problem (mine once quit like that because a moth got into it). If it buzzes, etc. the fan may be jammed.

BLOWER FAN WILL NOT SHUT OFF EVEN WHEN TRUCK TURNED OFF


Sounds like the blower control module. Alo inpect the multi wire plug,they sometimes get damaged from the heat. The module and plug should be in the immediate vicinity of the blower motor,generally behind or below the glove box

Blower motor stays on when car is off 1999 mercury mystique


The Mercury Mystique had somewhat of a bad reputation for wiring problems. I guess my question to you is have you had to have the wiring worked on?? If so, I'd guess that it would be pretty possible for a wire to be hooked up wrong at the ignition switch if somebody has been fooling with that. Just a thought... Also, I'm wondering if the fan continues to run until your battery goes dead?? Now, I'm hoping you don't have the blower motor (for the heater and air conditioner) confused with the electric engine cooling fan. It is normal for the engine fan to run for a while after you shut your engine off. But, I'm probably telling you things you already know along that line.

I have a 1992 Honda Accord. When you shut off the car the blower motor stays on and the lights on the heater panel.


Make sure your fan is wired correctly, if the fan is wired correclty which it may but could be crossed and spinning backward and sending power through ground wire causing a power up of the inside light and blower, if the wiring is good then replace the cooling fan relay, that must be shorting and back feeding power to heater control.

Today there was smoke coming from under the radio buttons. I shut off the radio and the air and the smoke quit. when I got stopped and checked under the hood, nothing was melted but when I turned on the...


It sounds like the AC controls or the Interior blower fan shorted and the smoke you saw was the insulation melting off the wires. You need to get into the wiring under there and locate the burned wires. It won't be hard to identify which ones are the problem because they will be brittle and the insulation will be burned away.

Heaterblower not working after changing heater core 1998 S 10


Have you checked the fuse? The blower fan has a resistor that controls the speed in the air box by the passengers feet. When the heater core was replaced, something could have happened to the connection or wiring. Not sure why the radio would be affected by the same thing, could be a coincidence or something dislodged under the dash. Start at the fuse and go from there.

2003 silverado blower fan stays on..


under the passenger side dash, right above floor board there is a wire connector. That connector is for your blower resistor. If you unhook it, the blower will stop running, hook it back up and you will have a blower. You can also remove the fuse. Point being you can use your truck. Order the new part and replace it. I can't remember how many wires went to it off hand, its rectangular, mayber 6-7or 8ish.
