repl temp sensor. run 12v to motor, does it run? could be resistors, they're hidden all over the car, thanks to the ******* engineers that put this piece of **** together. or the fan blades could be blocked.

boost vehicle but before you do that remove the fuse for the cooling fan till you get it to turn over once its running plug said fuse back in and get it to a shop to have them diagnose why the fan is on to long
Rear projection TV's use a high power light bulb that is cooled by a fan. When you turn the TV off, the fan still runs for a little bit to cool the bulb off. A power outage is nothing short of jerking the plug out of the wall. This is murder on the bulbs because of all of the heat built up in them that the fan cannot remove. I would recomment a UPS (uninterupptable power supply) or as you refered to it "battery backup" to protect your investment. If there is a power outage, this will not really provide enough power to watch tv, but you can safely turn off the tv and it can cool down normally. Also, a UPS can filter and clean up "dirty" power, compensating for over and under voltages that could otherwise cause stress to your electronics. Check the power consumption of your tv, as UPS's are rated by their output capacity. Expect to pay $100 to $200 for a decent unit
I have the same thing, mine is the cooling fan for the lamp. If the sound continues for a short time after you turn off the TV then this is the most likely cause as the cooling fan will continue to run for a short time to cool off the bulb. I have looked into replacing mine, the part runs around $50 but I can't say yet how easy it is to replace yet.
