Failed Cooling Fan Module May Cause Fan to Run Constantly or Not At All on Mazda MPV

The cooling fan module can fail causing the fan to either run constantly, or not operate at all. If the fan runs continuously, the engine may not warm up properly, and if the fan does not run, the engine may overheat. Mazda has a voluntary recall on model years 2002-2003 to address this concern.

My fan keeps on blowing as soon as i start my engine, and pretty much as long as my engine is running the fan keeps on blowing hard and when i turn my engine off sometimes the fan still running..
Cooling fan stays on as soon as I start the engine and sounds very loud. I've seen a recall for this on Mazda MPV 2000-03, but not for my 2006 and it's the same problem!! Dealer said it's going to cost me $300 to fix.. They should have fixed this issue already if every year since 2000 been having the same problem!!!
The fan continues to run even after the car is shut off and all the while it is running. This has drained the battery on many occasions. I figured out a trick to get it to shut off though. When turning the ignition off, if it stays running, just flick the ignition back on, but no so far as to start the car, and then back off. This usually does the trick. There is a recall I found, that may apply to your vehicle. Don't take no for an answer from your local Mazda dealer/repair center. This is a defect and should be taken care of by them.

My fan stays on after I cut my car off and it drains my battery. It sounds like a lawnmower it is so loud when it is running and goes from high speed to low speed over and over extremely loud. I called a dealership about it and they told me the recall was closed on the fan control module that was done in 07 but mine is still doing it.

Air coolant fan is very loud when engine running and take up to a minute or so to turn off when I turn the car off. Haven't had it fixed yet. Worried about how much money it's going to cost me.
