When I turn the engine off the engine cooling fan stays on and does not shut off


depending on the engine temperature the fan is supposed to remain on after you turn the engine off, until the engine reaches a preset cooler temperature. when it reaches cooler temperature usually within 5 minutes or so it should cut off... if you cut it off and it is running 30 minutes later.. then there is a problem with the fan relay or temperature sending unit.

Brake lights stay all time without car being on


So they stay on when the car is turned off with no engine running?
I imagine this flattens your battery?
Or do they only stay on once the ignition has been turned to "on" even without the engine running?
Could be the pedal switch sticking in which case you would simply need to look under the dash behind the pedal and try and "jiggle" the switch, though if they only stay on once the ignition is on I would lean towards a bad earth for the globe socket.

First maybe try and disconnect the pedal switch to ensure that its breaking the connection properly and turning your lights on and off.

Depending how handy you are, you could remove the tail light and run an additional earth for the globe socket.

have you put a fuel pressure gauge on it if so how many ponds of pressure does it have also if this is a distributerless car turn engine with a socket see if there is slack in rotation if you turn counter clockwise 1/4 turn stop and turn clockwise if so you more than likely have a stretched timing chain or jumped time

Headlights wont work properly


Sounds like you have a problem in your headlight switch. As far as them staying on sometimes when you shut the car off are you referring to daytime running lamps or the regular headlights? If it's daytime running lamps that like to stay on and your headlights do not like to turn on then there could be a combination of headlight switch and daytime running lamp relay.

It is possible the relay gets the signal from the headlight switch as well, since they generally turn off when you turn your headlights on.
