Asked by Dec 13, 2013 at 04:08 AM about the 1993 Chrysler New Yorker Salon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When i got to work the other day i got
out of my 93 New Yorker Salon 3.3 liter
& i noticed the fan was still running
with the car turned off, which grabbed
my attention immeditly because Ive had
is car for a yr & the fan has never
continued to run while the car is turned
off. I thought it eas wierd & went on
into work. So when i got off work i get
into my car & all inside lights were dim
& the car eouldnt start. I had to get a
jump from a coworker. I get home 15
miles away, turn off the car & NO fan
is running. The next day my car started
right up & off to work & again i get out
of my car at work & the fan is running
with the car off again. So i came out on
lunch & it starts right up except this
time it goes back dead almost
immeditely. So i started back up & as
soon as i take my foot off the gas it
dies. I let it run for around 5 mins with
my foot lightly on the gas but i take
foot off gas & dies again.Well i get off
work & battery is dead again. I get
another jump & i had to hold the gas
petal down the whole home so it wouldnt
die on me. I get home 15 miles, got in
my driveway & as soon as i took my foot
off the gas it died. Ive never had a
problem out of this car until this fan
thing, running while car is off. Now the
battery dies & the car if i dont keep
my foot on the gas it goes dead also. If
anyone has a solution to these issues,
battery dieing & foot on gas & fan
please let me know.!!!!! Be greatly

Perhaps the fan relay is stuck on.

Is the check engine light on? AutoZone pepboys or such scans for free so you have an idea where to start
