The cooling fan can continue to run for a moment or so until the coolant reaches the correct temperature to trigger the switch to turn it off.

Also, sometimes, you can hear the Freon/R134A in the vehicles that have been using the A/C or climate control as it works through the condensor/filter and tubing.

Really nothing else should be working with the switch off at this point.

Good luck

Is it your cooling fan? some models not all, if it has a warm engine.. it will tell the fan to cool down your radiator even if it is off! this is why they have a warning label on near the fan..it say caution fan may come on without warning!

Engine light on my 2000 Chevy Malibu and it doesn't seem to be getting enough gas. Also seem to be having trouble with it starting but its turning over


first thing to do is to check your fuel pump relay under the hood in the fuse block. the underside of the cover should have a diagram of which relay it it although i believe it is number 16 or 18. if its not the relay it could be something as simple as a clogged fuel filter or faulty fuel sending unit to something more major such as a bad fuel pump. try the relay and go from there. hope this helps

Since washing engine running lights come on when motor is running, can't turn on or off with switch, can turn headlights on and off with switch


Look for a running light relay to be shorting out,it is under the hood,most likely near ,or on the fire wall under the cover.If not ,look behind the head lights.

Service engine light stays on


disconnect battery and reconnect. If you have a problem that the computer is sensing, the light will reappear. At that point you must fix the problem. If your car seems to be running ok it could be something minor. Check all sensor connections under the hood
