Is the check engine light on? Does it run fine otherwise? Thanks.

No check engine light on. Engine runs fine otherwise. I've replaced the coolant temp.sensor but it made no difference
Buick Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 11 months ago

What engine do you have?

The fans will come on with the AC on, is AC off when this happens?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
There is only one cooling fan. Yes, the A/C did come on and run continuosly just like the cooling fan even though the climate control settings were not in the A/C position. I disconnected the wiring harness going into the A/C compressor and the compressor does not run anymore.
Buick Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 11 months ago

The heater control sounds like the problem. Unplug it to see if compressor and cooling fan stops coming on, if so replace the control assembly. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

Where do you unplug the heater control?
Buick Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 11 months ago

From behind the heater, you can also remove fuse which is the 25 amp heater/ac use. Let me know how it goes, thanks.

Dan, I believe you have solved the problem. I removed the 25 amp fuse and the engine cooling fan did not come on when I started the engine. Put the fuse back in and the engine fan started with the engine. Took the fuse back out and the engine fan did not come on. So, the part to replace would be known as the heater control assembly?
Buick Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 11 months ago

That is correct, you can get one on ebay, from your local salvage yard, or www.car-parts.com. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help, thanks.
