2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Electical issue AC/Radiator fan

Asked by Sep 15, 2019 at 05:02 PM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The radiator fans in the car started running all the time and would run when the engine was cold and would run for a minute or two after the key was turned off.  The other day the battery died and I replaced it with a new one.  It died overnight.  Did a drain test on the car and found a 3.2A draw on the battery.  When I would do the test with a multimeter there would be a click from the compressor.  I pulled the 10A fuse for the AC and the drain went away and the radiator fans stopped running when the car was started and turned off.  Other than running the car without AC how do I troubleshoot this issue further??  I am kind of at a loss as to why the AC and radiator fans are somehow linked.
