Radiator fan runs after ignition is off and key is removed


Does the fan motor shut off after a time or does it run your battery down?

If it runs for a time and shuts off, this is normal with a lot of cars today. It is a second stage cooling system that keeps cooling even after the motor is turned off. They all have either a temperature control or timer switch that turn them off.

If the motor runs till your battery is discharged then the temperature or timer control switch has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Should you find that your car is overheating while in town, then the fan motor or sensor switch are usually what is at fault and will need to be evaluated and replaced accordingly.

Fan relay switch


The fan relay could be defective, especially if the fan continues to run after shutdown and drains the battery.

Cooling fan won't shut off and it's draining the battery.


Replace the cooling fan relay, when the relay over heats due to the high current flow. It will melt and cause the relay to stay in the on position, causing your cooling fan to stay running. Simple fix and replace the relay and you can pick one up in most Auto Parts store like Napa and Auto Zone.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck
