Most likely it is a stuck radiator fan relay. Locate fan relay & replace.

Radiator fans


I dont know what year model you have but the newer one will run when car is turned off to cool radiator. Maybe you have a radiator problem if this just started to happen. Is the car over heating. Did you check radiator fluid or thermostat. I dont know much about your car and year model but i would do these checks. Maybe radiator needs to be flushed. You can use aluminum brite for to flush. Can buy it at O Reiley's. I had to flush my daughters radiator about 10 times when we bought it used, fithy. Looks brand new. Please dispose of chemicals properly. It is an acid.

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

2003 dodge durango started overheating and now wont start. changed the water pump and put new battery and still wont start. What could it be?


ECT wont kill the engine. If it over heated and you kept driving it. You just might have blown the engine. Put a socket on the balancer bolt and see if you can turn the engine by hand. Clock wise.

The Auxilliary FANS keep on turning ON even if the engine is stop or no ignition please HELP


The fans will run even if the vehicle is off. This is to keep the engine from overheating
after it is shut off. (residual heat). Now if the fans run continuously after the
vehicle is shut off and do not shut off in say, 15 minutes then the fan relay may
be stuck or the temperature sensor has failed. The fans may also come on after
a long drive several minutes after the vehicle has stopped as heat builds up
because there is no air flowing across the radiator. They may even be controlled
by the engine computer in some vehicles. You can have a code check
run at many parts stores for free.
Also, check the coolant
level with the vehicle off and totally cold at the radiator itself to be sure that
it's not low (Even if the reserve tank is full you can still be low creating hot pockets in
the block). Make sure the overflow tubes are connected to the reserve tank
I have seen them fall off and drain the radiator slowly without being noticed.
Hope this helps.

1999 Hyndai Accent 1500 cc high cooling water temp.


over heating while stopped usually indicates that the radiator fan is not coming on ...when the engine is running hot you should be able to hear the fan running .. if it doesnt then suspect the thermal switch mounted on the radiator .. make sure the fan turns freely .. the fan is not needed when the car is moving so it wont heat up as long as you are driving .. but will do so when stopped if thats the trouble .. sometimes the thermal switch operates a relay that in turn operates the fan ..that could also cause the trouble ..

Both radiator fans on my 2002 Toyota Solara V6 run constantly


Check to see if the radiator fan relay has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Once you located the relay, (in the fuse box under the hood) Try swapping it out with another relay and see if the fans stop, if the fans stop working with the swapped relay, replace the relay. It's know for the relays when they go bad to stick and will have a close loop. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% again soon.

Radiator Fan continuously running with engine off, discharging battery


It is not the fault: for long time Renault has that concept, that is to prevent engine oveheating when coolant circulation is suddenly stopped.

Radiator fan can continue to work up to 10 minutes after engine is off. You should worry about it only if it wouldn't stop even after 10 minutes.
