Battery dies fan was always running

Asked by May 04, 2014 at 08:58 PM about the Mazda MX-5 Miata

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The fan on the right as you face the engine was running after I put in the new battery and
started the car.  It started right.   I noted a fan running but bought this might be normal.  
Four hours later the fan was still running.  After trying to start the car the battery was
dead.

Thoughts.

Stuck fan relay is the most common problem.

I have a 2010 SRX. My stuck fan problem was the Coolant Fan Relay # 12 on fuse cover. It a bigger 4 pin fuse. It even looked like it has burned out. It had some brown burn spots from overheating. I paid 18.99 at Auto Zone.
