Assuming it is your AC/Heater fan.....does it sound like it is running at full speed/noisy ? If it is dragging....likely to blow fuse or burn relay contacts. Otherwise, wiring short to ground from relay to motor switch is possible cause.

2006 ford expolrer fan keep running when heat is off


Could be one of blower motor relays contacts stuck closed . There are two blower motor relays 1 & 2 . One is located in the under hood fuse/relay box .
Or if your explore has automatic HVAC , it could be the front blower motor speed controller , this have been known to do this .
Which HVAC does your explorer have , manual or electronic automatic control.

My 2004 Ford Expedition, keeps overheating and I have no leaks, I changed the thermastat and I flushed the radiater the temperature gage keeps rising to high.


Check the fan clutch and see if its engaging ! Start the motor and let run a few minutes and turn vehicle off while observing the fan blades if it free wheels when the motor is turned off then its bad ! Also take the radiator cap off with it cold and full of fluid and start the car - does coolant imediately shoot out if so the head gaskets are blown !

I have a 96 ford probe and it keeps over heating rad. Is full the over flow is full and just put in a new thermo in it please help


You have an Electric cooling fan. Most cooling fans have 2 speeds and if the high speed is not working, eventually the low speed will not keep up and you will overheat.

The cooling fan depends on Electric relays and a temperature sensor on the motor. This sensor on the motor can be different than the sensor that makes your dash gauge work. Go to Autozone or Orellys for a free scan and view the part you need.

If possible, when the engine is cold take off the Radiator cap and have it tested for the amount of Pressure it will hold before letting the coolant go to the overflow. When the engine is running turn on the heater in case you have an airlock in the water system.

Replaced fan relay but now lowing fuses


This might be a ground wire loose somewhere. Or a hot wire exposed to a ground. Electrical problems are the worst part of a car to fix. Try to replace just the wires or the entire harness to the fan relay.
Hope this helps.

A/c relay?


YOUR BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR IS DEFECTIVE. IT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED FOR THE FAN TO WORK ON ALL SPEED SETTINGS. ON THE PASSENGER SIDE IN THE DUCT-WORK NEAR THE BLOWER MOTOR YOU SHOULD SEE IT FASTENED BY TWO SCREWS AND IT WILL HAVE A THREE WIRE PLUG GOING TO IT AS WELL. HOPE THIS HELPS. KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA.
