My 2000 acura tl runs fine while driving temp gauge never goes up but i have noticied the last 2 days that when i have been running my air it goes up when im stopped or parked what could the problem be

sounds like the fan may not be coming on,The electric fan
should run whenever the air is on,if you start it cold,then open the
hood the fan should be off,then turn on the air ,the fan should run a few seconds after that.
If it doesn't come on,could be a faulty pressure sensor on the ac ,
bad relay or the fan itself.

When you shut the car off something is staying on in the vehicle, causing a current draw on the battery, causing it to go dead over night. something that would cause this would be like a under the hood light, trunk light, interior light staying on. visually check it. and if you don't find anything you might want to buy a fluke/ volt meter, to check for unwanted current draw when the vehicle is off. your local mechanic could help. it could become more extensive then this but most likely not by the sounds of it.

None of the fan motors will run ac/heater or radiator coolant fan motors

Sounds like one of your BIG fuses under the hood or a relay has bgit the dust.
To stop all that at once, it's a major connection. don-ohio

My van keeps dying on me and other then my battery what could be the cause it goes dead and when we charge it it works fine but when we turn it off and then leave it over night it dies again and we have to...

It depends how long you had the battery. Sometimes in cold weather the cranking amps in the battery are low. If the battery is too old and the temperature is too cold, the cranking amps are low. When you get a boost the battery from the other vehicle normally generates enough power to start the car, but the amps are not enough to keep it going once you turn it off or it could need a tune-up.

My 2001 SLK-230 when I turn off the ignition key, the air circulation in the car continues to blow air until my battery dies.....

Sounds like there is a relay that is stuck, so the connects are still made and the fan keep going even though the car is off. Look for the fan/HVAC relay. I do not have this vehical but there is a juction box or relay box under the dash of in the engine compartment. Remove/replace the relay.
If your car has a water leak moisture can cause the problem.

Just a half of answer. Yes there is a cooling fan relay. Yes it sounds like it quit working. Sorry I cant tell you exactly where the relay is . It will be under the hood and under the plastic cover it will say fan relay. Have a look see.

2005 Chrysler Sebring Sedan Fan continues to run

Hi !
A little bit confusing.... though interesting...
when the fan noise is coming please open the hood and physically see if the fan is working.....
What I see is that the thermostat connected to the fan needs to be replaced.
BUT first see physically if the fan IS making the said noise.

My 1997 Ford F150 dies whenever i turn on wipers

sounds like a new problem, I would try unpluging the windshield wiper motor under the hood turn on the switch inside the truck and see if it still dies, if it doesn't suspect a short inside the wiper motor itself (replace wiper motor).
