Why does my 2006 Pilot fan keep running after it is shut off.

Asked by Jun 21, 2014 at 06:13 PM about the 2006 Honda Pilot

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It just started doing this...doesn't seem to matter if air is on or not...what the temp outside is.  I did call dealer and he said it is OK and normal, but it never did this before and is now doing this quite often...not all the time.  It quits running after 2-3 minutes.

It turned out that I had a small hole in my radiator. Small enough to keep the fan running after shutting off, but not to send my temp gauge up...until I ran low on fluid...then the temp guage almost hit H. Don't wait until then to get it checked! Ended up getting a new radiator...all is fine now. Thank you.
