Engine cooling fan problem

Hello all

I have a problem where by the engine cooling fan will not switch off, it runs all of the time even when the engine is turned off which in turn runs the battery flat.

I have had to resort to removing the big red 50amp fuse under the bonnet when I switch off the car so that the fan will stop.

Any suggestions please.

The relay is in the bracket which is hidden on the left of the steering wheel behind the leveler of the front lights. According to the maintenance book the relay is a green one. In order to get the cover off it has 3 screws one on th side of the door an two underneath of the steering and on top it holds with clips just pull it and it will get out.

It's on the right of the steering wheel on a RHD car (it's that bit of lower dash on the end nearest the door, anyway).
