You first need to scan the computer for any stored codes, these codes will help in pin pointing the problem, if there are no codes then i would take a look at the fan relays and then coolant fan sensor and coolant temp sensor, this sounds like the cooling fan sensor is bad, also one more thing is that the relay is like a module and they do good bad often, hope this helps.

I have a 2002 Jetta diesel and the fan won't shut off for about 5to10 min after turning ignition off, any suggestions?

You haven't got too much to worry about.

There's a module under the hood that controls the fan. It may look like what you see in the link below.

If you can locate the module, try tapping it. If the fan switches off the module is at fault.

The other thing you can do is just to remove the relevant fuse when you stop the car. The fan will stop. Replace the fuse and you're ready for the next trip..

Hi, Can you tell us how you found out the fans aren't working?
It operates only when car is running and engine is hot.

No it shouldn't unless activated by the fan switch. If the fan switch is activated, then probably not enough freon in the system.

2001 buick lesabre is running slightly hot. i just replaced the thermostat and 2 elbow joints (sorry dont know what their called) and did a complete flush about a month ago

replacing the thermostat is exactly what i would have suggested for your vehicle for the overheating issue. try this,with the engine running at operating temperature,check to insure that the cooling fans coming on when the engines gaining temperature. your cooling fan may be going bad and not coming on when needed,in this case it may be a bad cooling fan sensor,or just a bad cooling fan altogether.with the engine running after you've driven the car until it gets warm,open the hood and look visually at the cooling fan to insure it's running{the engine fan} in front of your radiator. if it's not running {fan} check in the main fuse box under the hood for a bad engine fan relay 1st if no bad relay,then check for a bad engine fan motor.with the key switch in "off"position try to spin the engine fan manually by hand. if it does spin by hand it still may be a bad fan motor. or bad fan you have a check engine light on? if so you can have it code read at any auto zone or advance auto for free.this may be of great assistance to you if the check engine light is on. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

I have a 98 chevy cavalier and when i turn it on my engine fan spins but then stops.. but i have seen other car when they started the engine their fan keep up spining. why does my car does that?

is your car overheating???the fan isnt suppose to run when started(unless engine is hot), it may turn on then shut off. See if it runs when the vehicle gets hot and the A/C is on. Those engines with fans that move all the the time are belt driven. This is why they spin continually.

Engine cooling fan will not turn off

It is controlled by the Coolant Temperature Sensor. it is located on the engine by the thermostat housing. It is brass colored with a small plug going to the fans.
Did you recently change your battery or otherwise remove the battery ? Sometimes it has happened that the battery is removed and the fan will turn on and the check engine light.You can try and remove the negative cable wait a minute , then reconnect it back,.

Coolig fans dont run

the cooling fans are run by a relay it's located in the junction box. check this. there is also a thermoatic sensor located near the fans next to radiator. the fans should free spin when the engine is off this is a good indiacator that it's not the fan themselves. if the relay checks out(run engine and switch the fan relay with the a/c clutch relay when the engine reaches 180 degrees you will feel the upper radiator hose get hot the fans will turn on a short time later iof they don't it's the temp sensor near the radiator if they do it's a bad relay...please rate this thanks
