Default Re: Radiator Fan keeps running, even after the ignition is off!

I have seen the Fiat Uno diesel fan run even after the ignition was switched off. Same for my Honda Accord. So in some cars this is a feature. Best check with the service centre to know how your particular car behaves.

All said and done, I would never be comfortable working inside the hood of such cars where the fan might start with ignition being off!

Not sure which Palio you would have heard about but I have a Palio stile and fan does not switch on when ignition is off. But yes the fan does run for sometime before switching off even after taking the keys off from the ignition.

Safety first! That's one of the reasons you should disconnect the battery before starting any work inside the hood!

The manual will mention this too
