How can I keep my cooling fans running all the time on a Pontiac Aztec (2005)


To keep them running, pull the plug off the engine coolant sensor. They will run even with the key on (PCM default). To get them to stop running, replace the engine coolant sensor.

Cooling fan runs continuously, even after shutting the ignition off


sounds like it could be a relay.

With everything plugged in and the fans running with the key off remove the cooling fan 1 fuse. Do they stop?

If they do not stop remove the cooling fan 2 fuse. Do they stop?

Fans wont shut off when ignition is off 99 prelude


Some cars are designed to allow the fans to run even with the key off until the engine and radiator cool down. If it continues to run after 19-15 minutes you may have a sticking fan relay, usually located in the fuse box in the engine compartment, just replace it and it should take care of your problem

When car not running the raditor fans are running even though i took out keys. but when i start car then fan will stop running


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.

You have a very common problem; a stuck fan control relay.
This issue is easy to track down and fix yourself.

Here is what to do:
With the key off, and the fans running, open the hood, and open the fusebox on the driver side of the engine compartment. Look under the fusebox cover, and look for the locations of the 3 cooling fan relays. Unplug them one at a time. When the fans stop running, you will have located the malfunctioning relay. Buy a new on at your Toyota dealership parts department.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today!

Cooling fan won't shut off


Hi!
Check the cooling fan Relay located on the engine compartment Fuse n Relay Box, it is probably stuck ON. If fan stops when relay is removed, replace relay.
Note: Some vehicles are equipped with automatic cooling fans where the cooling fan can come on when engine is hot, even if the key is OFF or not in the Ignition, check your owners manual.
Good Luck! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

If running mutiple errands and the car has been startet and stopped after a few times when trying to start the engine the wont stay running.


Most modern vehicles using an electric cooling fan have a thermostatic switch that will allow them to run even after the engine is turned off. Start and stop driving can cause heat buildup in the block which can cause problems such as the one you have and if the fan isn't bringing the excessive heat down during a stop, the hot engine can refuse to idle or accept fuel as it should.
You should listen to see if the fan is turning on after the ignition is off; this is sometimes delayed for a minute or so until the thermostatic switch adjusts to the rising block temperature and starts the fan. If the main fan is belt-driven, it may be the AC fan that is used for this purpose.
