Fan and blower controls staying on?

Some times now when I shut the car off, I walk back outside and hear the fan running...which is no biggie if its just on for a bit..but when I looked inside, the controls were light up on the pushbuttons for the air directions. I turn the key on and back off and it goes off?

Anyone ever experienced this?

are you refering to the cabin air fan or the radiator fan?

WEll both. It acts like the fan is turned on, even when its off . And the radiator cooling fan.

I think it might be a faulty igntion switch.

if the motor gets hot enough on a drive, the rad fan staying on after turning the car off is normal.

but it def does sound like an ignition switch with the symptoms you described.

On my 90 Si, sometimes the radiator fan kicks on after I have done a quick start and shut off. (too short to warm the engine). So mine could be a breaking wire in the switch ciruit (I already fixed 1) or a fan control unit getting erratic. I would recomend checking both circuits out. And look for possible breaking wires.
