A lot of cars cooling fans will continue to run after the engine is shut off until it has cooled down to a specific temperature. Does yours eventually go off or will it stay on indefinitely until it runs the battery down? If it never goes off you could either have a faulty coolant temperature sensor or there could be a short to ground in the wiring somewhere.

Mercedes fan

If it gets hot at a seady 55-60 mph.It's not a fan problem.They are only for low speed.If it gets hot running down the road ,more likely a head gasket.One is the engine fan ,the other for the A.C. Don't know where the relay is for the engine fan,anybody else?

Mercedes clk55 engine suction fan stays on as soon as the key is turned on.The black and white wire on the fan has continous positive,when I remove relay P in the front fuse box (terminal 15) the fan

The fan control module is defective.....would scan codes in engine control module to insure this diagnosis is accurate. I've replaced quite a few on Mercedes Benz models. The reason for the scan of the engine control module is to insure the DME (engine control module is not commanding "ON" the engine cooling fan. The factory scan tool can view these commands. If the DME is not commanding the suction fan to operate...the fan module is indeed defective.

check the fan relay for proper operation. Check the engine coolant temp sensor. If it is disconnected or stuck at full cold, the fan will not come on.
