Car keeps running



My Mom has a 1990 Honda accord.

The car will keep running for a full minute after

she turns the key off. She is afraid to drive it

because she is worried it will stay running longer.

Could it be the ignition switch?


Hope to hear from you.

Are you sure the engine is running and not the cooling fans for the engine?


She has had the car for 2 years and it just started doing it 2 weeks ago.
Does a 1990 honda accord have a fan cooled engine?


No. The engine is transverse mounted. The fans are electric. This is normal as the fans are used to cool the fluid in the radiator. However, the car may be running hotter than normal. Have your mechanic check to make sure that it is not running too hot.
