1999 BMW 328i

After I switch the car off the electric fan that is located on the engine side fo the radiator continues to run. The only way to stop it is to unplug the connector to the fan that is located on the left hand side of the radiator (passenger side)
It just started doing this last night. Is there a relay that could be bad or is it a temp sensor.
Thanks for your help,
Brad

As far as I know, this is normal. When I get out of mine, I hear the fan run for about a minute after I shut the car off.

when you write that you had found no fault with the switches, what were you trying to find? I'm not familiar with the wiring in your car, but in my vehicle everything is in series and parallel relays. So if one drops out or malfunctions, the fan does not function. Most cars keep the fan running after the car has been stopped from running because of residual heat in the engine. If it runs beyond 15 minutes I would start to be suspicious.

Where is the thremostat located


In BMW 328 To locate the thermostat follow the hose from the right side of the radiator to the motor at that connection there is thermostat.There should be 3 bolts which you will have to remove to take off the thermostat. In BMW 328i The thermostat is located behind the viscous fan and approx 9inches above the center of the fan. The viscous fan drives the water pump and the thermostat housing is just above the water pump at the front of the engine. The thermostat is a one piece unit and is a bit expensive £55 at dealers £42 independent. You will need to remove the viscous fan to get at it there are special spanners for this and its a 30mm socket left hand thread ( screws off clockwise). Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Auxillary fan will not shut off, continues to run when the car is not on. I have to unplug the switch before it will stop.


Is this the radiator fan you're talking about? If so it's supposed to run after the engine is switched off unitl it cools down. More noticeable on hot days.

The electric radiator cooling fan will not turn off


As long as the fan eventually shuts off this isn't a problem,the fan will continue to run for a bit after the car is turned off,once it reaches a set temprature it will turn off.

Location of fuel pump switch


Hi Bigbadbobby,

There is no switch as such....There is a relay which controls the pump and you'll find that in the electrics bay where some of the computers are housed in the engine bay...
