It needs battery power right but may not be connected thru ignition off - so it should be having 12V constant.

open the radiator cap when cold and fill it up first. and I won't recommend opening the cap too often though.

Ford Ikon radiator fan running with ignition OFF !!
Hi guys, hope you all are doing good.
Today I was washing my Ikon 1.6 and decided to wash the engine bay as well because a quite amount of dust had accumulated on the inside. So I disconnected the battery and went ahead with hosing down the entire bay.
About an hour later, just when I reconnected the battery, I heard a sound of a motor running. And to my surprise, the radiator fan started running on its own. I got confused when I found the car keys in my pocket. I switched on the ignition and switched it off but the fan was still running. I stared the car, kept it running for about a minute and stopped the engine but the fan didn't stop.
Confused with the situation I blew air through the vacuum cleaner to fast dry the water accumulated on the fan connector and the fuses near the battery and its terminals. Still two hours later after drying it up, the problem persists.
Now battery is disconnected and I'm waiting for tomorrow to check it again.
Any idea guys what could have gone wrong. I have washed the engine bay even before a couple of times, like once every two months, sometimes even without disconnecting the battery. But this is something new and surprising. Looking forward for your suggestions and advises on the current situation.

re: Ford Ikon radiator fan running with ignition OFF !!
It is quite possible that water might have seeped into fan connectors leading to a complete circuit. It also might indicate a cracked wire somewhere. Please have a thorough check especially if some part of wire is tapped. Let it dry overnight and try once again tomorrow. Hopefully once the water dries off, it should return to normal.
p.s. Its good that you have kept battery disconnected. Keep the battery disconnected otherwise you might end up with a dead battery.
