I would have the blower resistor tested.

what is a blower resistor and how much is it to repair
COMMENT by on 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.
