Default PT cruiser fan relay

My fan relay stays on as soon as key is turned on. Facing the radiator first relay on the left on the shroud, if slightly tapped fan goes off.
This is repeated every time the car is turned off, any ideas?

I would recommend replacing both high and low speed relays. They are relatively cheap, about 14$ each and hopefully will fix your problem. I am not sure about the location you are mentioning where the relay is located. Mine are in the engine compartment fuse box, located behind the air filter. I have an 05 Naturally aspirated cruiser, so yours might be different. I recently changed out my fan as well as the high speed relay since the high speed on the fan wasn't working. I replaced the relay first, with no luck, so the fan was next. I just figured for the small price, the relay was an easy and cheap option. RJ

Cori, In thinking about it further, the only time your fan should come on is either when it is up to temp or when the A/C is on. My understanding is that the fan will come on whenever you have the A/C on regardless if the engine is up to temp or not. First see if your A/C is on when you switch on. If so, turn off and try again. What year and model do you have? Hope this helps. RJ
