Accord - Radiator Fan Keeps Running Solution

I am posting this to share my ordeal with Honda Service and the Persistent pain in the rear problem with the low temp fan (radiator) fan not stopping after cool down.

the car: Accord 2000 V6 EX-Leather, 70k problem start around 60K

the problem: we would driving 5 min plus, then stop and the low temp fan, radiator fan would come on to cool the car, as designed. this supposed to run for about 15 mins and stop. but it would not unless I started the car back up and let it run for couple of mins if the fan got stuck.

we took it to honda, the guy first ask me change my battery, which he claims can cause this, so I did. no help it was still broke. so we took the car into honda.

1st call: honda changed, the timer (110$) and called it a day. total bill $160 (with my 10% off)

this did not resolve the issue. cuz the timer was not the problem, now the high temp can would come on and NOT turn off, kept on going. arr

2nd call: they were unable to reproduce the problem. no cost

many weeks went by, when it occured we were miles away and did not drive to honda. I kept going out to check on the car half hour after parking at home everytime we went out and came back home.

3rd call: the fan had drained the battery dead, luckily we had the extra battery. we took it to honda and they decided to keep it overnight, gave us a loaner.
they found the fan relay switch (omtron) had gone bad. but they checked all the sensors and all teh relays in that sub system. car fixed, cost nada, they ate it.

I am still confused as to why only the relay would be the fault item and would cause this. but the problem has not occured since then, and it is about 50 Degree Cooler.

Anyone else had this problem?
what was the cause and resolution?

wow never going to buy another honda in a million years because of an elec fan issue...... can't say that I would agree with your logic but hey it's your money good luck with the chevy.

I've personally never had that issue but honestly i'm surprised it took so long for them to figure it out.
