Hello the fan runs for one of two reasons. 1- the ECM is shorted and it activates the fan as soon as the key is turned on. Or

2- the fan is shorted internally and the fan will run no matter the car is on or off. Which scenario do you have ?

Second one doesn't matter if the key is on or off
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok. Then the fan will have to be replaced. The ECM doesn't get power once the key is shut off so there will be no chance of it being the reason. You will have to replace the fan assembly. Hope this information helps

Hey Lou replaced the fan and I still have the same issue as soon as I put the fuse in the fan runs
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok , if that is the case then the ECM had failed and is commanding the fan to run.

It is just really odd since the ECM is supposed to be off when the key is off. If you have a meter we can do some tests to confirm.

I do, but I'm not around the car right now. If you give me a few places to check I may have time Monday
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok I'm going over the diagrams now. I'll get you some things to try. Have a good weekend.

Ok there may have been a misunderstanding. Did the fan have just have 2 wires on it ? There are 5 wires on the fan control module that is usually one piece with the fan assembly. Was your unit just a 2 wire fan ?

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

There are 6 wires on the fan control module.

Pin 1 grey ( goes to fan )

Pin 2 brown (ground wire)

Pin3 red with yellow stripe (power from fuse 38 )

Pin 4 white (goes to fan )

Pin 5 green with blue stripe (signal from engine control module will have positive voltage when ECM is commanding fan on )

Pin 6 red wire white stripe (key on voltage from front Sam 12v with key on. )

So if there is voltage on the ECM signal wire then the ECM is commanding fan on , if there is not then the relay is shorted out. My apologies the relays are usually always part of the fan and that's why I suggested the fan in the first place. Let me know what you find.

I have a 2 wire fan looked for the fan relay is it the "A" relay in the fuse box in the engine compartment if it is I pulled all the relays there and the fan stayed on if it's somewhere else if you could send a diagram of its location it would help
Thanks
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Or if you have the location of the fan module I have looked all over the Internet for a picture and haven't been able to find anything
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

Absolutely I'll get you a picture. Again I apologize for the miscommunication
