It can be the A/C switch causing this, but not likely. Make sure to turn the A/C off when you stop. If it still does it after turning the A/C off, replace the thermal relay.

there is a solid state fan relay located under the passenger side headlight assembly. There are two ways to get at it. Either you can tear apart the entire front of the vehicle or you can remove the passenger side headlamp assembly and carefully drill a hole about in the middle of the opening and down towards the ground. Look in the hole you drilled you should be able to see the relay. Continue drilling/cutting until you have a hole just large enough to get the old relay out and a new one in. The hole will be covered by the headlamp and has become the preferred method of replacing since they are so common and removing the entire front assembly is so time consuming.

It is hard to confirm...as you are aware...your battery is draining when not running...First try turning off all power including the radio on your next shut off...If this does not work, The only drain is usually the starter has developed a short...replaced one...and fixed problem 100 %...(as long as everything else is properly shut down)...Hope this helps...nice car:)

The cooling fan keeps running even when the car is shut off. It keeps running until the battery gives out.


The fan is suppose to run until engine cools off. If battery drains before cooling down a good place to start is a weak battrey

Fan continues to run/Battery goes dead


Hi Scott,
The electric fan should run, for a few minutes or more depending on how hot the cooling system is. ( normal )
I would suspect that the problem is the battery, Or the terminals are corroded or loose. Have it checked under load, Any auto parts store will do it for free.
Heat and vibration are the most common cause of battery failure.
Unless you are constantly draining it all the way down, with a car stereo. or some other voltage drain.
The average lifetime of a battery is actually about two or three years, Less in hot climates.
Good luck and Keep those Jumper Cables handy till you get it diagnosed.
Regards paul
