2001 Nissan Altima Question: Engine fans running long after the car is shut off

 

Question

Visitor, Silt, CO, March 14, 2010, 12:00

My engine fans recently began running after the car has been shut off. Sometimes they don't start up till the car is shut off and they run for about a minute. Is this normal? It just recently started happening.

    If it is hot outside someplace like Phoenix or Vegas then this not unusual. The fans are cooling the engine of the ambient air temp. If it is not too hot where you live then I woul get this checked

    if it has a fan module control uinit as does the likes of Saturns L200 car it may be at fault if it does not shut off. In some cars if outside temps ARE high the fan will run until it reaches a pre temp to when it will shut off, thats normal.
