Fan motor keeps running on Audi A4 2004


The fan motor keeps running when I stop my car and will slow down and speed up but does not turn off. I have to pull the fuse in order to get the fan to stop each time I turn the car off. How hard is this to fix?

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.

Air Conditioner fan not blowing

You may need to replace the reostat in the heater box. Do you have the hi speed only? Only have off and I, then it is definitely that switch in your box. You can easily replace it.

Radiator fan wont run at high speed

do you mean high engine speed or fan speed.
if fan speed is slow then motor in the fan is getting bad.
if your talking about running engine, then could be nothing because the sensor tell it not running down the road it cools the car down and engine temp drops slightly enough to cut sensor off.

There is no heat or cold air blowing through the vents when turned on.There is cold air coming through when the car is travelling fast but there is absolutely nothing when the car slow right down or stops...

Sometimes this is caused buy a vacuum problem. It is not opening the door to let your air in at a slow speed. The doors are opening at high speed due to the air pressure from the outside air. Make sure that the fan is runnig by turning your ignition on but not starting the engine. Turn the fan on high and see if you can hear it. If the fan is running then take you car to a mechanic you trust and have them check the vacuum going to the door.

The blower in my 2002 Malibu isn't working right. It will work at first and then slows down until it eventually turns off. If I turn it off for a while and then turn it back on, it will work and then run...

It could be caused by the fan bearings failing (normally sleeve types that get gummy), switch failing (does speed setting make any difference?) or finally connector problems caused by corrosion.
If the speed selection resistor was failing, it would affect lower speeds but not the highest speed since it is then bypassed.
Operating the switch that selects fan speed rather roughly could clean the contacts in the switch and help cure the problem if the switch is at fault.
If the fan motor slows down regardless of speed setting, it is likely the motor (bearings) at fault which would likely require replacement of the fan. Access to the fan may be a real pain-in-the-. . . well, you know.

Dash light won't stop flashing 1 mpg what could this be?

I don't have my manual with me but that is a self-set speed warning. Essentially, you can set an "alarm" to go on when your car reaches a set alert yourself that you should slow down. To reset the speed alarm, go to the desired speed and hold down the "check" button. Otherwise, just look it up in your manual. It's fairly easy to fix....

Heater fan blowing intermittently or not at all

Most likely it does, if you can hit the motor and it will run. I can't say for sure but you might want to chk. to see if you got a heater blower motor resister. There located (if its got one) around the heater motor and it controls blower speeds, might be worth checking out.
