Customer Question

X series jaguar in australia. 2.1 lt V6 has a thermatic fan that has kept running when ignition is turned off. Is there a fuse I can pull to stop this or a wire to pull
JA: Have you checked the vehicle's manual yet?
Customer: Yes, there is only a fan speed fuse
JA: What is the model/year of your Jaguar?
Customer: x type 2009
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Tried the fuse, no good. Drive around the neighbourhood hoping it would reset. I think it may be theheat sensor, but only one of the two thermatic fans is on. I'm resisting. Pulling the batterl leads off.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just want to know what wires to pull to stop it begore it runs the battery flat.

Unfortunately the fan is powered by a large fuse on the side of the engine fuse box. It would be easier just to disconnect the main fan module connector when you turn the vehicle off. The fan itself could be the problem.

we have disconnected the battery. Better to do that than have it run out slowly and put up with the fan noise all night.
Will get it to local mechanic who has worked on the car previously.

Ok. Let me know if you need anything else. Fan should be replaced.
