Why does the free turning fan on a 1997 Plymouth Neon continue to turn after the car is off?

The fan is electric and is controlled by a thermoswitch in the radiator. When you turn the engine off the fan keeps running to prevent boilover until the coolant in the radiator cools off. Then it should switch off automatically. If it does not either the radiator thermoswitch or the fan motor relay is stuck "ON." Rarely it could be a wiring problem but this is not likely. Whichever unit is bad has to be replaced.

The 1997 Plymouth neon starter wiring diagram shows the wiring routing of the starter. The diagram can be obtained from most Chrysler dealerships.

The Chrysler/Plymouth Neon is physically the same as the Dodge Neon, since Chrysler, Plymouth, and Dodge were all the same company when the Neon was released.
