    It can all be fixed, but what bothers me is it coincidental or was something forgotten when the repairs were done. Take it back to the shop and ask them to correct it.

    thank u and hes actually on his way now to look at it. he keeps saying its the fan that needs repair...however untill its fixed i have to remove the cables from the battery when im not operating it to keep it from draining the battery...

    If the fan was the issue, it wouldn't work. My question would be why is it getting powered from another source, it can't power itself internally.
