My 2006 Jaguar X-Type fan stays on when car is off? Does anyone know where the fuse is for fan (if that is the issue) or the relay switch (if its the issue)?

NO. it is supposed to run to cool the much as it can when high temperatures are involved...especially with the air conditioning...we don't wan't to melt the engine...this is if it's stuck on for an hour we can see about a "quick-cool" setup....if this really makes you mad, but is in the best interest of the engine to dispense of the excessive heat....okay~?

You should maybe look at the translucent reservoir to see if your short on coolant...this lack of cooling ability may have started making this happen...perhaps a coolant flush and new hoses is in order~ your t-stat can become a restrictor if plain water had been used as a panic measure in the past and was not subsequently flushed out~

also make sure you have antifreeze in your car it causes the car to overheat and the fan will stay on longer.Sometimes it will even say high temperature.
