Having problems with your 1992 Honda Accord ?
On my wife's 1992 honda accord the cooling fan kicks on after the ignition is turned off. Her battery had died before and I wondered if that may be the source of the battery drain. If so what might be the reason for the cooling fan to kick on after the car is off and where should I look first?
First check the temperature switch for failing closed. you can do this with a test light or ohmmeter. with the car cold, put one test light lead on the battery positive and the other on the temp switch terminal. If your light comes on, replace the switch. If the switch is not failed closed, recommend you replace the fan control module. According to autozone.com, your temperature switch is on the driver side, upper engine area, end of cylinder head, mounted in top of water outlet. The control module is probably in the engine compartment relay box by the battery. If you have questions or your setup differs from what I have explained here, please get back to me.
Rewire it so feed to relay operates from ignition key,if battery drains overnight then change alternator as a diode has packed up
