2010 Cadllac SRX - My battery drains because the fan will not stop going after the car is
off.  It takes about 15 min and my car is battery is completely dead. Hopefully, its still
covered under GMPP?  Happened this weekend when out of town.  Saturday night and
Sunday, no GM locations open on Saturday when it was noticed, as it was after 6pm.  
and they were closed on Sunday.

Sounds like the fan relay is stuck. It'll probably be in the underhood fuse box. When you remove the cover look at the underside for a box marked "fan". Pull the relay out and the fan should stop. That'll keep the battery from dying until you have it looked at. Just remember to put the relay back in before you drive it. Otherwise the engine will overheat because without the relay the fans won't come on at all. HTH. -Jim

Well it was my fan relay and a ton of other relays. The total fix was over 3,000 but it was covered under my GMPP Hopefully you still have a warranty. I have since sold the car.

This really sucks. I bought a Cadillac because I was told it was easy and wouldn't have the problems that my jag had. The electrical problems on this car are just as bad OK we'll maybe not just as bad but they're freaking bad as my jaguar.

I sold that car and will not buy another Cadillac. I have driven an Infiniti QX60 for the past two years. No issues. Not as visually appealing but definitely a great car and awesome ride.
