1. Check up the fuse no.# 19 - F19 (30A) = Radiator cooling fan, placed in the fuse box inside car on driver's side, under steering wheel and above pedals, under a plastic cover. Replace blowed fuse if necessary.
2. If the fuse no.#19 is OK, verify the electrical supply power directly on the cooling fan motor connection plug. Disconnect the harness plug of the cooling fan motor, and check voltage between supply wire and earth, ignition "ON". Measured value must be around 12 Volts. Repair supply wires if necessary.
3. If everything is OK, connect a 12 Volts supply hot wire directly to the cooling fan motor, (and another earth wire). Repair or replace the cooling fan motor if necessary.

Shut engine off cooling fans run non stop 2005 dodge carav

More than likely your cooling fan relay is stuck in the closed position, under the hood there should be a box with several relays, on the inside cover it will have a diagram, pull out the relay for the cooling fan and it should shut off. good-luck ! here is a picture of a 97 relay, but they should all be the same.

A/c cooling fan for my 88 mr2 non turbo wont turn

Sounds like the condensor fan relay is "sticking" - you are sure this is the condensor fan, and not the radiator cooling fan? As electric radiator cooling fans often run after the car is turned off - this is normal - If you are sure it is the condensor fan and it is on with the AC off - Id bet it was the relay responsible (versus the AC control unit) - Locate and remove the relay - if you have a comparable one you can substitue (Make 100% sure it uses the same plug and wiring schematic) and try that - if it now works properly you can try to locate one at your parts store....Hope that helps some....DD

2003 Audi A4 Cabriolet ...cooling fans come on at start up

Yes this car should have a temperature sending unit that tells the fans to kick on. If it has two fans one of them is for you Air-condiontion, and it will turn on whenever the ac is being ran. One other possibility is if you bought the audi used the owner before you may have hard wired the fan to run whenever the car ignition is turned on. The only reason someone would do that is if they were to lazy to fix it properly.

The thermoswitch, if there is one*, is located on the lower portion of the radiator just in front of the turbo outlet pipe. Here is a picture:
The other "radiator" is probably your A/C condenser.
You have a 1997 which is T5 engine management (begun in 1995), so there is no thermoswitch because the fan is controlled directly by the ECU from the signal given by the coolant temperature sensor. I would suspect that one of the fan relays has bought the farm. (On some cars, there were two relays, one for low speed and one for high). Here is a picture:
For general diagnostics of the cooling system, go here:

This also will tell you where to find other components to check, like the fan speed resistor, and provide other diagnostic checks.
