Hello all, a quick question. My cooling fans stayed on this evening when I turned off the car, It is a 93. I removed the fuse to the primary fan and they went off or it went off..... What do I need to replace?

Any feedback will be appreciated......

cooling fans cont'd

Okay I put the fuse in this morning drove to work, was planning on getting the relays and put them on at lunch. I turned the car off when I reached the job...... the fans go off like they are suppose to. My other question is this, are the fans suppose to come on independently of the engine? I had a porsche once and theirs did, also a VW jetta back in college and those fans would come on whenever...... This is the first time this has happened with my vette..... so is this normal?

Not on a VETTE

Once you kill the key... the relays will drop ( unless there have been MOD's)

hmm

i think the fan draws its juice before from the alt before it hits the battery
so with the engine off the fan would shut off

not 100 percent sure though
i have mine on all the time,, wired to the bat
