Fan stays on when car off

This is most likely a bad BCM. That is a body control module. They control all the inside aspects of the car much like the ECU controls the engine.

Truck die when you turn AC fan speed on high 1988 peterbilt

Sounds like a supply problem ,the connections in the fuse board or the supply from the battery are corroded causing a high resistance and when the fan is turned on this causes a power drop thats allowing the fuel shut off or stop valve from staying open causing the engine to stop as its a diesel .Us old fleet vehicle fitters never die we just answer questions on here because the back breaking hard work of keeping the drivers on the road kills us off

Whats needed for ac/heat and fan to work on 1997 jetta?

There was probably a short somewhere in the electrical system for your fan that was causing a fuse to blow. I'm sorry, but it will not be an easy fix. You will need a wiring schematic (from a haynes manual from autozone) of this system, a multimeter and a free saturday. Disconnect the battery. Secure the black lead from the meter to a ground point on your car. turn the multimeter to the lowest Ohms setting. Then using the meter and the wiring diagram, find all the points where power and ground have close to zero ohms. A good place to start is the switch.

After turning off key computer ac fan moter stays on and will turn off after tapping brake and battery go down in24 hr.

ok...this is an interesting you have electric is for the radiator (cooling system) and one is for the a/c system. The radiator one will sometimes stay on after the engine has stopped and the key is out of the ignition, due to superheating ( a condition where the temperature of the coolant spikes after it stops being circulated around the engine) and will continue for a couple of minutes in the hotter weather.

But, considering it stops when you put the brake on...???? this definetly sounds like a short to me, and this together with the battery going flat...defineite short....

If you have got little experience in automotive electrical, I suggest you take it to a specialised repair shop to at least diagnose it.

I hope this helps you...\
PLease vote if you liked this response......!!!

Heater Fan does not work

Sounds like the fan control knob has shorted out. You can check the fan "blower" relay and fuse in the engine compartment but you need to make sure the control knob is good or you will keep blowing fuses and relays. If your blower fuse and relay are good, then just have the control knob checked and replaced if needed.
