Hi swbro,

The cooling fans runs with power from the battery via a relay controlled by the ECM.
Either the relay is stuck or the battery replacement has shorted the ECM control circuit.

Unplug the relay or give it some knocks to see if it frees up. If possible, substitute a known good one to test.
