Angry Fan problems

I have a 1992 Pontiac Lemans, it has been giving me total grief with the stupid fan(as you can see I am getting annoyed at it). It continues to stay on even after the car has been truned off, I end up having to take out the fuse to stop it. But the main thing that upsets me is that it does it when it feels like it, and when I tried to take it to my mechanic, it was normal and didn't do it. Does anyone have any ideas what might be wrong with it? Is there anything I can do(instead of taking it to the mechanic)? because my mechanic is an hour drive away from me, and I would rather fix it myself instead of wasting gas and money to take it down to him.

Thanks

Tisha

the fan's operation is controlled by an electrostatic switch/sensor which turns it on and off according to engine/radiator temperature...this switch is probably faulty...replacing it is simple and should cure your problem...

get a service manual for your vehicle or ask the auto parts person, they can tell you the location of the switch/sensor...if you trace the wire loom from the fan itself back to your engine, switch should be mounted there...

Does anyone know where I can get a repair manual?? I have checked chilton and hayes or haynes(whatever it's called), both do not have any manual for my car......is there any other publishers of repair manuals?

Check the links in my signature file for more information.

As noted, the best manual is the factory one, but a Lemans of this vintage (I hate the fact that Pontiac recycled the name LeMans for this thing...a Lemans was a good old Poncho at one time) isn't worth the ducats for a factory book.

You can also pay 25 bucks and you'll get basically the same information in yearly Alldata.com subscription.
