99 FAN OR PUMP KEEPS RUNNING

1999 Audi A4 • 6 cylinder AWD Manual • 150,000 miles

I have an 99 Audi A4 (AWD). After I shut it off and remove the key some sort of fan or blower keeps running. When I open the hood it appears to be coming from the front left (as you are facing the car). The only way I can stop it is to remove the battery connector. Everything appears to be working fine. It just keeps running (sounds like a vacum cleaner, and will wear the battery down) Any ideas?

Seems like your radiator fan may be running, this is normal for a minute or so after engine shut down, if it stays on longer than this then thats a sign of a faulty radiator fan relay
