Sounds like you have a stuck fan relay. It is located under the passenger headlight assembly. Theoretically you need to remove the entire front core support to replace it but it has become common practice to remove the passenger headlight assembly (usually one bolt and then pull to release from the retainers) and drill a hole large enough to replace the relay.

2004 XC90 Volvo, fan will not turn off, just installed new battery


you mean the engine fan or the interior heater fan ? if the engine fan it must just be a coincedence or the fan was running on before, and you might not have noticed, and if you replaced the battery because it kept going flat the fan running on to long could be the reason ,the engine temp sender may be the fault as fan is designed to run on after engine turned off to cool down components,so i'd get the OBD codes read this will pinpoint the sensor/switch that is at fault, save you time and money,as a temp fix see if you can disconnect the wire to the fan when engine has cooled as the new battery will soon be toast , plug back in when starting engine again being carefull in case the fan cuts in straight away which would also point to temp sender switch, keep me posted if you wish

Cooling fan keeps running after engine turned off on a 1996 ef ford falcon


Some fans do keep running after engine is switched off for a short period of time (up to 5 minutes) Check with a service person (ford) to see if that is the case or if you have a faulty sensor.

Acura tl 3.2 1999 engine fan comes on after I turn the car off (and usually if i have been running the A/C) This has not happened before but started about 3 weeks ago. Fan stays on about 10 mins after...


Most engine fans will come on and run after the engine has been turned off. It does that to cool the engine and is run by a temperature control. This is perfectly normal.

Why does the fan keep running on 2005 jetta after turning off


You are talking about the thermo electric cooling fan, its operation is independent of the car's electical system. It is switched on and off by the engine temperature. When you park, the engine heat soaks upward to heat the thermostat turning the fan on. It will run until the engine cools down and the thermostat switches it off. Quite normal operation.

1991 honda accord lx cooling fan


Some vehicles have sensors that can control the electric fan with the ignition off to keep the heat buildup that naturally occurs right after turning off the engine. This can prevent hard starting that can happen with a hot engine. If it is doing this an abnormal amount, the sensor that is operable with the ignition off may be failing. Before turning off the ignition, check to see if the engine temperature is pushing the 'red zone;' if it is, then the fan operation may be normal but your engine may be running hot.

I have a 1994 buick lesaber limited my fan won't turn off


It is normal for the fan to run a couple of minutes after the engine stops running. If it still runs it could be a bad thermostatic switch.

Fan motor keeps running on Audi A4 2004


fan motor has a thermal switch which turns on the fan as soon as the engine heats up. what happened there is that the switch is stuck on the closed position which keeps the fan on all the time. you should go to a garrage and have the part changed.
