I have a 1997 tc that does the exact same thing. I had no idea what fan was running but it is extremely loud. It runs when the car is in the garage, all times of day and night !!! It started about a yr ago w/mine. Since I am ready to trade it in, I haven't had it seen about. I am scared to go out of town in it and only drive to work and back. Mine shuts off, but it probably runs ab/ every 15 to 30 min. The deal incentives on new ones are great but I do not think I want to buy another one--scared?? I can tell u that it only has gotten worse and louder over time.

When the radiator fan runs all the time, guess it could be a faulty temperature sensor needing to be replaced. Not expensive and better than a dead battery as a result of continual running.

Check the fluid level in the master cylinder or emergency brake light switch.

I as well have never heard of a head gasket leak in a 4.6 either. Almost indestructable engines.

NO NO NO! That's an aux. cooling fan to assist the A/C, it runs when ever the A/C is going to cycle for instance, if you have the climate control in AUTO - FLR/DEF - DEF - NORM A/C - MAX A/C the fan will run. If you set it to say VENT - FLR - or OFF the fan will stop in a minute of two. Ford had a problem with hot engines in prior TCs to 1995, whey found that when these cars sat for long periods of time ideling with the A/C on they'd overheat. What they did was for 1995 - 1996 - 1997 they added this electric aux. fan to assist the clutch fan to prevent overheating. 1998 and on there is only an electrical fan.

OK this one is crazy. First the cruise control went out. Then, the older set of keys would fall out of the ignition while I was driving. Now, the car will not shift into gear once the car is started. In order to move, I must first put it in neutral, start the engine, and THEN put it into drive.
Is this all related? How difficult would it be to replace/repair all of these problems?

Did it fix your cruise and the gearshift as well?
And, I know this may sound like a silly question...is this something that can be repaired without a locksmith?
