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.

Why does my fan keep running in my 2003 Volvo S 60 after the car is off?


It can be faulty fan relay.The relay is not turning the system off.Or its wire short issue.Even with ignition off ,the fan relay is getting power so its not letting the fan to turn off.Bypass the fan control relay and see if still the fan works with ignition off or not.

This sounds like the thermal sensor on the head/block is faulty or in some cases the wires have shorted to the chassis somewhere causing the fan relay to stay on, clould be a faulty relay also.

Some cars are designed to have the fan run for a few minutes after you turn the car off. But if doesn't stop until the battery drains, then it might be a faulty switch or temperature sensor.

Or, if the fan stays running when the engine and radiator are cool you have a very cheap problem: The fan thermostat is stuck closed. A new thermostat will fix the problem--the hardest part of replacing it is finding it. Follow the wires from the fan to the switch--it is usually on the bottom tank of the radiator. Drain the radiator first and save the coolant to put back in after you replace the thermostat. NEVER OPEN A HOT RADIATOR.

If that wasn't it then check the following:
  • Check to see that your coolant level is correct. Top up as necessary.
  • Lay your hand on the radiator (with the engine off) and feel if it is as hot at the top as it is at the bottom. If not, your radiator may be clogged and need flushed or replaced. (Flushing is cheap. Replacing the radiator isn't)
  • Do you get heat from the heater? Leave it turned on high and see if your fan stays running the next time. If it takes care of the problem that could mean you have a kinked radiator hose.

Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this).

Blower does not shut down when machine is put in standby


That fan is your lifeline and definitely SHOULDN'T shut off until your PC has cooled down. If it remains running at hi speed for an extended period, you may have too much dust in your PC. Remember, standby mode is not the same as off mode, and the PC will require some cooling even in this mode.

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.

Check out clarks-garage.com he has a complete troubleshooting guide for your cooling system along with a schematic. In short, check the low speed resistor on the firewall. Should be around one ohm.

The fan limiting switch is acting up. It should stay running until lower temp is reached. It will cycle until the temp stays below or at the low setting. Limit switches are adjustable.

My Gateway laptop shuts off after five minutes. I


Hi there.
There is probably dust trapped in the air vents and around the CPU fan, the best way to clear it is to turn the machine off, get a can of compressed air and give short blast through the air vents.
The CPU fan is usually located under the laptop and give a couple of blasts through that too.
Once your happy that all the dust is removed you can turn the laptop on again and it should stay on for much longer.
The cooling pad won't make any difference if the issue is dust.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Radiator Fans


You may have air trapped in the cooling system, this causes a hot spot and the fans run, This is a common issue on most front wheel cars, jack the front of the car up as high as you can, fill the coolant reservoir full, run the engine until hot,( don't overheat it) then shut down, let the engine cool, this should self bleed the air, refill the coolant bottle and retest for your problem, restore the wiring, the not running fan is for AC. Spray cold water from a hose on the radiator his will help get the air out after the shut down.
