Why after I shut off the engine in my 2011 cadillac SRX would a fan continue to run under the hood and will not stop until the battery is dead.


coolant fans will run continuously if the fan relay is bad. even with car ignition off. this may cause them to stay on even when the vehicle is off, God Bless!

Side by side refrigerator model MCD2257HES, has stopped working. The fan isn't running, nothing is cooling. I unplugged overnight, plugged in this morning.


Is the defrost timer out of sync? Usually it defrosts early in the AM. If you unplugged it for a long time you will have to set the time on the defrost timer.

Suzuki GSXR 600 constant power to Fan fuse even with key off. Fan Kicks n at high temp, just like it's supposed to.


Although my fan cuts off when the ignition is turned off on my bike, my car fan stays on and has even switched itself on just after I have stopped and then stops later once cooler. My point is that this may be normal for your bike, just as it is in my car. I can't see a problem unless you have noticed a battery running flat. Hope that is of some help.

Ac fan runs even when off pulling down the battery


I am not familiar with the X5, but most cars electric fans are controlled by a thermostat. If the thermostat, or the associated relay is stuck or defective, this could cause this problem. BE AWARE however that most fans stay on for a time to cool the engine, even after shut down. If your battery is weak, the fan staying on could draw the battery down.

I bought a new battery, the bike road fine for a while the in the middle of my ride it started slowing down to a complete stop. I couldn't start it again, waited for 20mins, started it and it ran...


One explanation for this would be that your charging system is faulty. It is possible that the OLD battery was ok, but was not getting charged by the faulty charge system. You put in a new battery, that is part charged before sale and ran the battery flat because it wasn't charging. If you leave a discharged lead acid bettery for 20 minutes or so, it will pick up a little again and possibly let the bike start and run, but by the time you got home you had killed the battery completely.

All the facts fit, though I'm not promising that it is the problem.

Take the battery off and charge it with a charger. Now, put it back on the bike and run the bike (It should start) While the battery is on the bike, get a volt meter on it. It should read slightly over voltage (doesn't matter if its a 12 or 6 volt system, it will read a little over when the bike is running) when you turn the engine off, you should see the volt meter drop down to the stated battery voltage. If you get no hike with the engine running and drop as you power off, its a good sign the charging system is faulty. A similar test, start the bike, meter the battery and turn on the indicators, stop light and head light to pull as much power as you can, the battery voltage shouldn't dip, because the charge system should compensate. If it does dip, consider this a confirmation that the charging system is faulty.

Fail to start


I think I would change the petrol in the tank as it may have become a bit stale. Also I would replace the battery.Make certain the replacement battery in fully charged before you try again.
