Most modern vehicles have fans that can run for 5-10 minutes after the ignition has been turned off if the engine is hot.
if the fan runs for more than 15-20 minutes there may be a problem with the temperature sensor for the fan.
this would normally be located on the side of the radiator and is fairly easy to change.

if you need more detailed instructions on changing this then please feel free to ask, but if the fan turns itself off within 10-15 minutes then there is probably nothing to worry about.

Even with a fully charged battery i need to use a battery pack to start the van when it does start the cooling van comes on for a minute then goes off and that continues


Check rear AC in van and turn it off. Most vans have dual AC. Even if the front AC is off, the rear is still usually on and some vehicles have the cooling fan and condenser fan run together to help with cooling. Check relay and fuse also.

The fan on ford escort van 51 plate continually runs even when the ignition off


Sounds like either a temp. sensor, or a timer malfunction. There are heat sensors that make the fan run after you shut it down, until it's cooler, usually doesn't run long. You didn't mention if it continually runs, or if it shuts down after awhile. Other than taking it to a shop, check your fuses, wires connecting the fan under the hood, look for any frayed wires and/or loose clips. Good Luck. Grimm

Thet a hummy noise after I shut my van off


That is much information to go on but... You didn't state the make or year of your van, but most newer models have an elecric fan to draw air through the radiator. When you shut the engine off, the water temperature rises due to the heat left in the engine block and the lack of the water flowing through the cooling system. The "humming" you hear is probably the electric fan continuing to run to bring the coolant temp down.

2000 Dodge Caravan 2.4 L Radiator fan motor will not stop running with engine off.


The fan should continue to run until the coolant reaches the shut-down temperature as determined by a sensor. Check the coolant level, is the van running hotter than it used to? A radiator flush may resolve the problem as build-up in the system can coat the sensor, preventing it from operating correctly.

It starts fine, runs good until the engine heats u...


Check to see if the radiator fan is coming on when the van gets hot.If it does not then on a 2.6 liter engine.look on the bottom part of the radiator on drivers side for a fan switch that could be bad and not letting the radiator fan to come on. On a 3.0 liter engine the coolant temperature sensor is screwed into the thermostat housing. And on a 3.3 liter and on a 3.8 liter engine the coolant temperature sensor is screwed into the front cylinder head. Anyone of these can cause the van to run hot and eventually die with no restart until the temperature has cooled down. Check the fan first with two jumper wires from the positive/negative post to the fan connector on a 2.6 liter engine (positive wire to open pin on plug,negative wire to insulated plug side. On all v6 engines hook jumper wires to motor. To the left side will be positive and negative to the right. Do not let both wires touch together while testing. If motor does not respond to direct wiring then replace it. Another thing to look at is the catalytic converter on van. Check the exhaust flow when the van is running cold and again when it gets hot. If the flow starts to slow down when the van gets hot then remove the converter(plugging up). After doing that run the van again to see if the van runs ok. Hope this will help you.

The radiator fan of the car will not turn off when I shut the car stays on


It's an electric fan and this is not uncommon for any vehicle. Have your coolant lines pressure tested and flushed you may need a new thermostat. The fan runs on a temperature switch and this may also be a cheaper repair to make first..the fan runs because it is told she's all hot n' stuff...it's a good thing until you make specific repair....I'm assuming it's your thermostat.

Van is going through collant but there appears to be no visable leaks. runs the fan at redlights and in town driving but not when on the highway. can smell coolant after driving van.


Get a pressure tester, and test it cold. You may be burning the coolant off before it hits the ground. Could also be literally burning the coolant in the motor.
