Could be a number of reasons, but from looking at the wiring diagram my first guess is the fan controller. This is probably a dealer item, and I don't know the cost. I recommend you take this car to the dealer to see what they estimate to fix the problem. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. If you really want to do some troubleshooting, you could check for a fan command signal at the fan relay using my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check, but I'm pretty sure you will get a signal there.

Problem is usually the rad fan relay,temperature sensor or a short to ground in the wire out of the switch that ends up at the relay.

Flat battery every morning even though I make sure all accessories are off, heater fan not turning off all the time when ignition off


With hot battery, turn all off, wait 10 minutes and then feel of all relays to see if one is warm or hot. Stuck relay can cause this.

Fan stays on when car off


This is most likely a bad BCM. That is a body control module. They control all the inside aspects of the car much like the ECU controls the engine.

Why does my fan keep running in my 2003 Volvo S 60 after the car is off?


It can be faulty fan relay.The relay is not turning the system off.Or its wire short issue.Even with ignition off ,the fan relay is getting power so its not letting the fan to turn off.Bypass the fan control relay and see if still the fan works with ignition off or not.

Air condition stays on when car is off draining battery


If you mean the interior fan stays on then there's probably a relay for the fan or a fan module that is bad or stuck at the contacts, causing a short to ground that shouldn't exist after turning the ignition off.

2002 Lancer: why does the cooling fan stays on?...


Probably the Temp Sensor contact which make when temp is high is permanently made. It is a small box next to the fan. Too much hustle to repair, just replace it, that is if you can find one in the market! I have not been lucky to get one. In the meantime take care as you can get a flat battery in a matter of minutes.

Electric fans operate continuously after initial warmup. Temp gauge shows ok - about half way. Fans turn off about 10-15 sec after ignition off. This occurs in cool weather, regardless of whether car has...


It's probably a bad fan switch. There are two sensors in your cooling system. One is the one that your dashboard reads, the other is the one that turns your fan on and off. If your fan switch is bad, it will make your fan stay on too long or when it doesn't need to be on. Good luck.

My 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart fan stays on for about 10 seconds after I turn my car off. I checked the fluids and I topped off my coolant.


hello, these cars will do that, comp goes through, a cycle, fan usually last thing to turn off, it may not do it all the time, depend on how hot it gets, plus cools engine after its turned off

2004 Jetta GLS. Main cooling fan remains on after car turned off.


"Already had replaced: both cooling fans, fan control module, coolant temp sensor, fan switch, 4 terminal connectors. No trouble codes reported in VW electronic diagnostic test. 2 different VW dealers and and my mechanic threw in the towel. Any suggestions greatly appreciated."

This is a common problem with the VW..and no one has an answer WHY. (including VW mechanics)

THIS IS A RECALL ISSUE and should be implemented
