    I am not sure what additional info that you need. I have only noticed the car doing it today and my battery has subsequently gone flat.

    The cooling fan will keep running when the engine is off. The fan will go off and will come on 4-5 hours later. It is erractic. The engine isn't overheating do I need to install a relay or a temp. sensor ?

Fans wont shut off when ignition is off 99 prelude


Some cars are designed to allow the fans to run even with the key off until the engine and radiator cool down. If it continues to run after 19-15 minutes you may have a sticking fan relay, usually located in the fuse box in the engine compartment, just replace it and it should take care of your problem

Hello, I have a 2001 F350, 7.3l diesel. Saturday when leaving the house my ac fan did not start workign right awa and then came on. I drove for 10 minutes and stopped for 3, when i turend the truck back on...


When the fan is not working, does it not work in all speeds or does it only work on high speed? If high speed is all you have, the fan resistor is a likely culprit. If you have no fan operation at any speed, leave the switch on high (with the ignition key in the run position, of course), and smack the fan with a rubber mallet. If it starts working, the fan motor is on its way out and will need to be replaced.

I have a Prelude '97. It overheats. I replaced the readiator, water pump, and one of the fans, but it still overheats when going uphill or when in slow traffic. I've noticed that the fan that is...


will try to help. the fan you replaced, was it the air conditioner fan? if so. then you need to check your primary fan. the one that does come on when the engine reaches operating temperature. make sure by starting engine, let the motor run and the temperature guage reaches the normal operating temperature.if the main engine cooling fan does'nt come on, then you'll need to check the fuse box under the hood. relays are black square plug in's they are marked and will[fan relays] tick when you turn the key on] if main engine fan does not come on when engine overheats, #1 fuse blown #2 relay bad #3 main cooling engine fan bad. note; the air conditioning fan will come on with engine running,when air conditioniing is turned on. when the a/c is turned off, the a/c fan will not be turning. hope this helps and as always, thank you for choosing fixya.com

My engine cooling fan runs even when the engine is turned off-Do you think it is as simple as changing the relay? Much appreciated, Joe B-


The engine fan circuit is separate from the ignition system and it is perfectly normal for the fan to sometimes be off while the engine is on and sometimes on while the engine is off. It should turn itself off independently. If it runs 24 hours a day without starting the engine then the relay or water temperature sensor will need replacing.

My car over heafs when stuck in traffic. It's a Honda Prelude 89 model.


make sure you cooling fan is coming on (this should when the temp guage starts to climb) and also make sure the temp sensor that turns it on/off is good. You could also have low coolant or bad thermostat (the wrong mix of coolant) or oher major mechanical issues but start with the fan and coolant level/mix
