Fan stays on when i turn off my car,2006 ford fusion


What a pickle. How long did you give it before you disconnected the battery? You know, most fans may continue running for a short time, especially on a car that has been running at normal temperature for awhile. Reason being, the engine will actually get hotter for a bit as the coolant is no longer circulating. The fans shouldn't stay on too long. Most I have seen, less than a minute.

Be that as it may, a temporary solution to the problem, instead of disconnecting the battery to stop the fan-this is not good for the computer circuits who like steady voltage, however small-is to instead pull the fuse for the cooling fan. This is a large (80amp) maxifuse in the Battery Junction Box. The position in the box is F-29.
If it is staying on too long, the bad part appears to be a module or some type of relay-like switching device right at the fan motor itself. There are 3 wires to the fan assembly. One is the power feed from the aforementioned fuse, one is a command signal from the PCM to turn the fan on, and the last is a ground for the motor and assembly. I hope you could detach this device from the fan motor for replacement. Certainly nothing wrong with the fan motor itself. Good luck.

Primary and secondary cooling fans done come on


1. check fuse
2. look up and check relay probably the problem
3. check or replace engine temp gauge
wana cheap fix?

get 2 lengths of thick wire cut the wires after you find the positive wire,it usually runs from a cluster on most cars, ground will be bolted/screwed whatever to the frame.
cut the wires at the fan and run them directly to the batery leads and when you turn off your car disconect. "also this is a temp fix even though i have driven my truck like that till it was stolen.

hope this helps.

New batteries keep losing their charge, also when running sounds like it loses all power then in a split second it stays running


sounds like an over draw on system
computers need min 10.5 volts to stay alive (working) other wise they shut down
i would start by charging batteries fully and disconect from vehicle for 24 hr
then re check before hooking up if they staied charged batteries are good
then hook up bateries negatives then hook up a voltage meter to performed a parasedict
test other word in series to positive cable on wire and other to battery positive if draw is high
on meter start removing fuses on at a time until voltage on meter drops
you have know located source of draw that is killing batteries know diag that problem
ex . under hood light staies on........glove box stays on.......aftermarket stuff inproperly conected
good luck
