Fan does not stop running on my 92 VW cabriolet

Take a test light and disconnect you negative lead on your battery. Put one end of the test light on the battery negative and the other end on the negative terminal. If you have a light on the test light then you have a draw. Leave the key off, shut all doors and disconnect your hood light.
Start pulling fuses until the light goes out that will tell you what circuit your draw is on. As for the fan, sounds like someone hard wired the fan to power. Needs to be fixed to OEM

I took my 1999 Ford Taurus to AutoZone because has the Check Engine Light on. They said was a trasmision code. No problems with shifting or running problems. Trying to figure out what could be the problem

the shifting solenoids inside the tranny will make the check engine light go off. Check the wires leading into the tranny and if necessary you may have to go inside the trans to inspect the shift solenoids. It's odd you do not have shifting problems,. neither did I - yet the wire was broke inside and wound up eventually burning off the terminal to the shift solenoid..
Best regards

How do i unplug my daytime running lamps??? they will not shut off unless i unhook battery.....thanks holly

If you are talking about the lights inside of the car there is dimmer switch on the left of the steering wheel that is below the air vent. If that is turned all the way up the lights inside will stay on even if all the doors are shut. Turn that down and the lights inside should turn off. Hope this helps!

Interior lights run battery down when car is turned off.

Are you saying the interior lights don't shut off after the door is closed, or that the interior lights, when they're on for a short time, run the battery down?
If the lights stay on when they should shut off, there could be a bad door switch that's not registering that the door is closed.
If the lights being on for a short time when the car isn't running is running the battery down, your battery may be getting close to the end of it's lifespan & need changed.

The dome light does not turn off and the door ajar

the problem is door ajar switch located on one of the door latches just inside the door. what usually works is spraying wd40 or an electronic lubricant prayed liberally into the door latch and then opening and closing the door several times. the stuck switch is usually on the door that is the least used door like the passenger side rear. let us know how you make out.

Back windows won't operate

For electric windows it can be common for a wire to get cut. At the driver door hinges. Inside the rubber boot where the wires pass from the driver door to the car body. Their is a lot of wires stuffed inside their. it can be a little bit of a pain to squeeze your hand in between the door and the body to look at the wires.

Car starts run's 3 seconds shuts down

Your car is equipped with a system called PASSKEY standard on all GM cars and light trucks, try the following procedure to reset the system, the battery being dead will trigger the system.

1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
