Having problems with your 2006 Chevrolet Impala ?

I have a 2006 Chevy Impala LT 3.5 L, and if I drive the car, the fan under the hood remains on, even after the car has been shut off and the key has been taken out. It stays on for about 2 minutes, then shuts off. I didnt notice the car over heating, and this has only happened 2 times in the passed few months....any ideas? thanks!

It's suppose to. The fan will continue to run after the car is shut down to cool the radiator down before a timer shuts off the fan. I also own an '06 Impala LT with 69000 miles, and the coolant has been "disappearing" Since there isn't any excess water coming from the tailpipe, I'm figuring it's the water pump, due to the noises it makes (think marbles in a beer can). Be safe and check you coolant level. Hope this helps you!

I connected my battery wrong. I did not start the car I knew what I did as soon as I did it. When I corrected the problem I noticed I blew out the radio, so I changed the fuse. My charging light came on so I replaced my alternator. I started my car but my battery still won't hold a charge and the car shuts off within a few minutes. Is there another fuse I blew that prevents the alternator from charging the battery.

I have a 1997 Ford Thunderbird. Upon turning the ignition key the cooling fan turns on and the car will not start. There is nothing you can do to make the car start until the cooling fan turns off which takes about 5-7 minutes. Once the fan shuts off, the car will run and drive for as long and as far as you like. Once you shut it off and go turn it back on, the cooling fan turns back on and will take 1-2 minutes before the car will start, once the cooling fan again shuts off. It also seems
