I would have the blower resistor tested.

what is a blower resistor and how much is it to repair
COMMENT by , December 28, 2013
It is the blower speed controller, and sometimes they short internally causing blower to remain on. Pull the a/c-blower fuse. Not sure of the price, I'm not at the shop. Ask someone in your area.

thank you for ur help so it may just need fuse changed

No; Remove fuse to shut it off so it won't run the battery down until you get it fixed. Sorry was out fixing broken pipe at the well.

when i turn off the engine the blowers go off and when i start the car they go on

You are talking about the heater blower, inside the car correct. There is only one, there might be 2 for the radiator cooling fans.

Take it to someone and tell them you need to have your blower resister checked, and how much will it cost.
