    Fans going after i turn the car off?

    So the situation basically is.

    I turn the car off, then fans keep going for a while after, time changes everytime, is it just the thermo fans or another problem?

    That's normal, our engines get really hot so the fans keep going to cool it down so the heat doesn't warp the metal

    Mine goes on for maybe even 15min. If your battery dies cos of the fan, something is wrong with the battery / alternator.

    I doubt it, it would have to run for a few days for that to happen, I can run my stereo for half an hour with the engine off and the battery didn't go flat

    connect the two wires that goes to the engine bay temp sensor on the firewall next to the fuel filter. Fans will no longer turn on when the car is off, they will still turn on when the engine coolant is hot when its running. Easy fix :-)
