Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 sebring 4 door sedan. the fan under the hood had been staying on after the car was turned off. Now it keeps turning off & on even when the car is turned off. It has drained the battery. we cannot find the relay switch or whatever it is that turns it off. Please help!

Trouble :( .. To help with the battey drain issue I have supplied a relay chart so you can pull the relays when it happens. This will need some expertise to repair. Issue 1 - Need to see if the computer is seeing proper temperature from the engine sensor ECT ( Different than the gauge or light sensor ) Issue 2 - These relays are PCM ( Computer ) operated so there may be an issue with the PCM messing up. Issue 3 - A Dealer complient scanner may be needed to diagnose properly. No I am not a dealer and am not recomment to go there - There are plenty of competant Technicians out there ... Good Luck

Perhaps the fan relay shorted out and now the contacts are or could be fused together.
