96 Neon cooling fans stay on.

Lots of cars will keep running the fan when the car is turned off. Perhaps the battery is on its last leg.

Does the fan eventually shut off or does the battery go completely dead first. I would believe as Rick put it the battery may be on its last leg. If not it could be a fan relay getting stuck in the on position.

The fan is NOT supposed to stay running with the key on. the fan RFI module is faulty 04897717AA module 04897674AA connector
I believe these are the parts you will need, on is an updated connector

It keeps running till the battery is slap dog dead. Take the battery out, charge it over night and put it back, the fans started running immediately again. I then pulled the fuse for the fans out and waited 5 mins and re-installed fuse. They did not come on. Seems like it is the relay switch thingy, but not sure. Thanks all for your help. Jon
