Question about 2001 Honda Accord

1 Answer

After I turned off the car today, it still sounded like the fan was running. I opened the hood and something was running, couldn't figure out what it was. I drove it around the block a few times and turned it off again. The problem was gone. What was the noise? Will it happen again? I have a 2001 EX Accord

It is the radiator cooling fan. It can and does come on at any time! It will sometimes run right after turning of the engine, usually for no more than a minute or two depending on how hot it is. this is a normal operation. There is propbably a sticker on top of the radiator warning you of the fan's operation.

Under the hood is a roaring sound like humming that gets louder.

It is not possible to propose a diagnosis without knowing the YEAR, MAKE, and MODEL of your vehicle.
That being said, open the hood, and figure out where the "roaring sound" is coming from. It's THAT.
(Very likely, it's your cooling fan(s).)

Car won't start, fan sound under hood.

Try turning everything off ,ignition radio, heater A/C or whatever . Open your hood and take off the negative battery terminal. Leave it off for a couple of minutes. Then reconnect it then try it.

Check all cables and fuses and make sure the battery is good. If that does not work, it may be the starter which needs to be replaced. Since it clicked once it means that current did go through but stopped at the starter.

HELP!! 1992 buick lesabre Hood release cable snapped. no way to get hood open..

You may need a professional to get this hood open, and it will likely need to be on a car lift. Try this if you are handy, try removing the driver side fender well liner for access to the latch.

How to raise the hood on 96 Buick Park Avenue

I am trying to find someone with a Buick in our complex.It is large but it appears many are beachbound today.I may not be able to figure out something until later or tomorrow AM EST.In the mean time,you could try calling a dealer.I do not think the service center would be open today(unsure),but that is worth a try.If they tell you to bring it in then just hang up.I assume you want to self-repair or at least be able to open the hood until you can fix it.Is it a pressing issue?I will get back to your solution ASAP.

Turned car off...sounded like it's trying to start w/o keys

This is called run on,or dieseling ,there maybe a timing problem,or the vehicle is running to hot,the temperature is to high,it may not be cooling good,check the temp of the engine,if it is too hot,then the cooling fan may not be working,or thermostat maybe staying closed.If the vehicles throttle is staying open to much,this could be the problem also.

I have a 2004 chyrsler sebring v6 and recently my fan started not shutting off when i turned the car off and now its killing my battery does anyone have any idea what would make the fan stay running even...

Check under the hood and see if you have a decal that says fan may turn on after car is turned off. The fan can run for 10-15min after shut-off.
If it's on for only that length of time and it's killing your battery, you may need a new battery.
If it's not turning off at all, open fuse compartment under the hood, take a small rubber mallet and start to tap the relays. There should be one there for the cooling fan. Once you find it, (the fan will turn off when it's tapped) you can exchange the relay for another (of the same part number - like the wiper relay or A/C relay or something) restart car, let it run til hot, and turn off. If fan shuts off within 10-15 minutes, you need a new relay.

Engine fan runs fine. When AC is turned on it blows 30amp fuse under hood for the engine fan. Cant figure out whats going on, i've traced the wires for the fan as well as the AC and could not find...

I had the same problem today with my sunfire 96 2.2L and it was the radiator fan that was draining too much amperes and the fuse blew up 3 seconds or less after the fan was turning.... i just change the radiator fan motor and the fan and the fuse are ok!!!!
