You should check the fuse, and also do a computer diognostic. You could need a new radiator fan relay or wiring or diode wiring, or a new fan altogether.

There are 2 fans that would be running while you are driving and that is normal... the compressor fan if you have the air conditioner running and the radiator fan runs to help keep the radiator cool while the engine is on.

Either your engine is running hot or the fan switch in the radiator has failed or the relay is stuck.

First of all, check the thermostat, the radiator fan, radiator hoses, water pump, radiator leaks. P.s. If you install a radiator fan universal and it don't place really close to the radiator, you can have that problem

Engine overheating or cooling fan running all the time.

check the cooling fan sensor somewhere attached of the fan housing.

The engine coolant fan can keep running after the engine is turned off in any car because the temperature gauge is in the radiator. As long as the radiator is still hot, the fan will keep running until the temperature gauge says it has cooled enough.

The radiator fan should not run after the key is shut off. The normal cause is a failed radiator fan relay.

User Avatar

with the engine running and the a/c on check the electric cooling fan on the radiator, if it is not running the relay or the fan motor is probably bad (maybe loose connector)

No, the radiator fan is electric.No, the radiator fan is electric.

Radiator fan inoperative, thermostat stuck closed, coolant low, radiator restriction, etc.

User Avatar

There is probably a short in the fuse block or maybe you just might have a problem with the remote wire for the fan. Is It the radiator fan or the A/C fan?

The radiator fan is designed to run continuously while the engine is running so that the temperature of the coolant can be lowered. The coolant is continuously run through the engine, collecting engine heat and dispersing it over the radiator fins; while the fan blows the fins and cooling off the coolant before recirculating back through the engine in a continuous cycle.

Check the fan relay for the 1996 Cavalier. Also, check the coolant sensor, one of these is most likely bad.

Thermostat failed in open position or radiator fan permanently on

check to see if the thermostat is hung open or your temperature sensor for your fan is out and causing your fan on your radiator to run continuously when key is on.

The radiator cooling fan will run to cool the radiator to below the fan turn on temperature. You may want to have your cooling system checked if it happens regularly as your Buick may be running hotter than normal when driving.

If the fan that is running is the radiator fan, this is nothing to be concerned with. Some vehicles have fans that will run even if the car is off. The fans run to cool the engine down. If it continues to run, the radiator fluid may need to be replaced. If the fan that is continually running is the heater/air conditioner fan, there is an issue with the switch that turns it on and off, or in the electrical system. This can be checked by a mechanic.

The fan relay is most likely stuck closed. Remove the relay to see if the fan stops running, if the fan stops, replace the relay.

If you mean the radiator fan make sure the airconditioning is off. If the fan keeps running it could be a bad fanswitch (located on radiator tank. Or a failed control relay (if fitted) If still no luck check for a failed AC fan control relay.
