I installed electric fans, and now my car takes an extra minute to shut off when turned off

Asked by Feb 13, 2017 at 06:09 PM about the 1981 Chevrolet El Camino

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The fans will run until the thermostat shuts them off if you wired it to stay on after the key is off. You could wire them to shut off when the key is off but it is better to cool the engine after it is off.
