2000 323ci Radiator Fan not turning off

The fan right behind the radiator is not turning off once the vehicle is off. Is there some type of relay that allows the fan to turn off/on? Anyone have/had this problem. I searched the forums but everyone has problems with it not turning on, mines its not turning off. Thanks.

most common cause of this is a failure in the fan assemby itself. The fan has a small final stage unit built in to it which is what fails and causes it to stay on.
