Best Answer

Some vehicles electrical system is designed for the fan to run-on after the ignition has been switched off. If the fan switches on when you switch the ignition on from cold, this would indicate a faulty thermostatic switch, these are often fitted to the radiator and it will have two wires attached. To eliminate this as a problem, switch the ignition on when the engine is cold, if the fan starts carefully disconnect one of the wires (beware of rotating fan!) - the fan should stop, if this happens you will need to replace the switch. I hope this helps I would have to say it is probably a stuck relay.

Why would the engine cooling fan on a 1998 Dodge Caravan stay on when engine is cool?

The fan is usually meant to cool the radiator. It shouldn't be anything to worry about. Since the radiator cools the antifreeze that has come from and circulates through the engine, as long as the fan is running, the coolant is remaining at a good temperature and you won't have to worry about overheating.
