My vehicle, a 1994 Honda Accord EX with 83K miles (I’m original owner) has developed a problem and I’m hoping to gain insight into a possible remedy.
I rarely drive it (have been out of work) so usually have to jump the battery with my “BEAST”. I leave the car running while doing errands in order to charge the battery.
It’s starting to have an annoying quirk that only happened a couple (literally, two) times in the 22 years of ownership.
After I turn the car off the radiator fan continues to run UNTIL I go under the hood and pull and reinstall the C22 fuse.
Today I did that and for several hours kept putting the fuse back in and the radiator fan would start right back up again.
I’m pondering that perhaps with my habit of leaving the engine idling I’m overheating components and that’s why I can’t get the fan to shut off.
I should mention that this evening after this happened I restarted the engine several times with AND without the C22 fuse in a very vain attempt to stop the fan. Each time a high pitched squeal came from the engine compartment as the engine turned over but quickly subsided.
I need to educate myself with your assistance on possible causes for this.
Of course things of this nature happen at most inopportune times such as now! Being out of work for a very long period of time and finally some interviews are on the horizon.
Please provide some advice/guidance to me!
I very much appreciate your help.
