Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!P0481 is a cooling fan relay control circuit code and is related to the fan staying on, assuming it wasn't set by disconnecting the relay on your own or something of that nature. It may be the relay itself or it could be a wiring issue.What year is the car?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It is a 2005 saturn vue. It is also showing codes: P0700, P0455, P0563

Have either of the cooling fan relays been removed with the key on?Have you checked the COOL 1 and COOL 2 fuses?
