The fan is suppose to run until engine cools off. If battery drains before cooling down a good place to start is a weak battrey

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.

Radiator fan runs after ignition is off and key is removed


Does the fan motor shut off after a time or does it run your battery down?

If it runs for a time and shuts off, this is normal with a lot of cars today. It is a second stage cooling system that keeps cooling even after the motor is turned off. They all have either a temperature control or timer switch that turn them off.

If the motor runs till your battery is discharged then the temperature or timer control switch has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Should you find that your car is overheating while in town, then the fan motor or sensor switch are usually what is at fault and will need to be evaluated and replaced accordingly.

I have a 2007 Toyota matrix and the fan that cools the motor will not shut off even when I turn the car off, this causes the battery to run down, any ideas what the problem might be


Does the fan really run until the battery goes dead?? OR are you afraid that it might run until the battery is dead?? In many cars, the fan will continue to run for a short time after you shut it off.... until the engine coolant is cooled to a certain point. It can also run for a while when you've been using your air conditioner. Now, if it is actually running continuously and won't turn off, there is a sending unit somewhere that isn't functioning correctly, either in your cooling system... or your air conditioning system. You're going to need to do some research and find out which sending unit might be the culprit..... or take it to the shop. They'll know what to do and can probably quickly fix it.

Radiator fan will not shut off


In some vehicles, the radiator cooling fan is controlled independently by a thermostatic switch. What you perceive as a problem actually is normal operation. When the temperature reaches a certain point, the fan turns on. When you stop and turn off the ignition, the fan continues to run until the temperature decreases to a point where the fan turns off

When i turn off the car the fan continues to run?


Many cars have this feature. The fan will run for a few minutes at a time until the coolant in the radiator drops below a certain temperature. Most vehicles with this feature will have a warning label on the radiator shroud indicating that the fan may start without warning when the engine or radiator is still hot. The only time you would need to be concerned would be if the fan continues to run without turning itself off, and causing the battery to be drained.

Cooling fan didnt shut off when ignition was turned off


It is the cooling fan relay,it will be in the fuse/relay box under the hood,on drivers side,or near the fans,if you remove the correct relay,the cooling fans will turn off.Just replace it with a new one from the parts store.

My 1994 volkswagen golf has a problem with the cooling fan, it keeps running even after the car is shut off. How do i fix that?


It may be running because the engine hasn't cooled down. These fans will run until the engine reaches a specific cool temp. But if it's not running hotter than normal temp, it's within the temp switch, which reads the temp of the engine, or the relay could be bad and not know when to shut down. While you're driving look to see what the temp gauge is reading. This will lead you in different direction for the temp. switch.

Cooling fan stays on when car is off. Took off battery cables to stop it. Is it suppose to run after cars off until engines cool?? Thanks, Chloe


It would be normal for the cooling fans to run after you shut the car off because the power to the fans is turned on and off by a thermostat and not the key. Don't worry about it unless it runs for more than 15-20 minutes when you shut the car off. It may run that long in summer if the car is hot but less in the winter. Hope this helps.
