Timmi400: Check the following:
1) Connection to fan for broken or corroded connector.
2) Check owners manual for fuse controlling the fan.
3) Disconnect fan and put an OHM meter across the fan leads. I should be almost complete short. If no reading at all then the fan is toasted.

When I turn the engine off the engine cooling fan stays on and does not shut off

depending on the engine temperature the fan is supposed to remain on after you turn the engine off, until the engine reaches a preset cooler temperature. when it reaches cooler temperature usually within 5 minutes or so it should cut off... if you cut it off and it is running 30 minutes later.. then there is a problem with the fan relay or temperature sending unit.

Fan motor does not run when engine is running,when engine switch off then fan motor runs,why?

The car is cooled by the water pump pumping the coolant and the movement of air through the radiator the fan is on a thermostat switch so it cuts in if the tempreture rises, the ignition turns off the water pump so as the water is not moving around the engine the temp rises the fan cuts in as to not damage the engine.

Cosra c fan stays on when i take the key out,

The engine cooling fan operates when the engine is hot and will cut off automatically once cooled. Turning off the engine whilst the fan is running will not turn the fan off, only temperature will do this.

Overheating 2001 ford

Check coolant level then make sure that the heating system is working on the hot side, once you've warmed up the engine check that all the water pipes are warming up ok, once the engine has reached its normal operating temperature you should hear the engine cooling fan cut in, if the engine coolant fan hasn't cut in at the right time you'll have to check the wiring and fuses for the cooling system.

Does the fan always run

Cooling fans only run when the temp,of the coolant get to about 215 to 218 degrees,and shut them selves off,when the engine cools down,if they do not cut off,the engine is not cooling down,now,if the ac is on,the cooling fans will stay on until the ac is shut off.

The car over heats when cut it off

It is possible that your cooling fan is not working. First check that the wires going to the cooling fan motor are plugged in. If you have A/C you may have two cooling fans check both. If wires are good. With the engine cold start the car. Let the car run until the engine is hot. See if the fan comes on. If the fan does not come on the motor or the relay are probably bad.

Engine overheats and cooling fan cuts off

try to replace the hoses, they may be collapsing, then replace the thermostat, and give it a radiator flush to clear any possible clogs in the lines, last thing i would say is to replace the fan
