the Fan motor will keep running fort a short time after the car is shut off. the motor actually gets hotter after it is shut off so the fan cools it for a few minutes before cutting off. Actually, on all the mid 80s 300zx engines, there is a fuel injector cooling fan that directs cooling air on the injectors for a specific amount of time after the car has been run at normal operating temps and then shut off. Is your car a turbo z? If so then the fan that comes on is the fan that cools off the turbo after the key is shut off. Maybe you have an aftermarket fan set up for the air conditioner, but there again they usually come on while idling with the air on, but they generally shut off when the key is turned off. The fan is not used for cooling the turbocharger. The turbocharger itself is watercooled and does not have a need for a fan. The electric fan is for cooling the fuel injectors as mentioned in the previous post.

How can an electric motor be turned into an electric generator?

You can use your permanent magnet electric motor as a generator. All you have to do is spin the shaft of any permanent magnet electric motor with an external power source, and your motor will turn into a generator. You can create an electric current with almost any motor if it is properly wired and used according to precise guidelines. As a result, you can't simply reverse the components of a generator to turn it into a motor. Brushed and brushless DC motors can both be used to generate electricity.
