I am using honda accord coupe 1997 car for the past 12 years.I put up in kuwait and the temperatures here right now are as high as 50 degrees centigrade.I use coolant for the radiator. My query is that the radiator fan remains on even after the car engine goes off for arond 10-15 minutes?Is this normal because im worried that this drains off my car battery.

This I feel will be normal in extreme temp conditions, you will have a problem if the fans keep running, as they shut down after the coolant temp falls to a lower level, this system sounds ok, you must remember that after the engine has shut off the coolant temp will rise as there is less cooling effect and the engine temp soaks into the coolant raising the temp, the fans running after shut down help drop the coolant temp quickly.

Just ensure the coolant level is correct and it should be ok as explained.
