2003 Lincoln town car engine cooling fan will not stop running?

In the diagram, pull that fuse, so it doesn't run the battery down. Of course when you drive the vehicle, plug the fuse back in. Any applicable trouble codes? In the diagram, you can see the cylinder head temp sensor. I can't guarantee the sensor is the problem, there could be other issues?

Cooling fan will not turn off

Probably a bad relay, pull it from the relay panel to shut the fan off.

To diagnose you can try a new relay, but you might also have a bad coolant temperature sensor on that circuit.
Or the climate controll is going south.

06 vue cooling fan wont shut off tried new relay swich and the 40a fuse is obviously good. what could it be, temp sending unit?

The power for the fan comes from 2 relays in the
junction block on the left fender. One is a high fan relay 40amp the other is the low fan relay 20amp.
If either one is stuck, it will power the fan. Also if the
engine coolant temp(ect)sensor is bad, it can send a
false signal to the engine control module(ecm) and powering the fan. With the engine cool, if the fans still
running. Unplug the ect sensor(on thermo. housing)
if the fan stops replace the sensor. If not pull the relays one at a time. And see which one stops the fan. If none of this works it may be an ecm problem.
Hope this helps.

Why does my radiator cooling fan remain on after I turn off the ignition?

The car has a computer that is linked to the engine. It is hard wired to it meaning the computer is always on. Upon shutting your engine off taking the keys in hand the computer is still on sensing the engines temperture. The coolant sensor will send power to the relay to keep the fans running untill cooled down enough. Then the sensor will cut off power to the relay shutting off the fans

Fan keeps running

It has a bad cooling fan relay. It isn't too easy to replace and it takes approx. 2 hrs to replace. It is located right behind pass or driver side headlight. It is flat and has 4 wires coming out of it. Hope this helps.
