Fan runs all the time

Got home with the Cobra tonight, shut off in garage and cooling fan was running. Thought that was weird, as it never did that before. Came back to it 10 minutes later and still running. Pulled negative batt cable to stop it.

Any ideas where to start trouble shooting?

That's strange. I'm assuming you took the key out? I think the Cobras kill the fan when the engine/key are off. Some cars allow the fan to keep spinning to cool the engine afterwards.
Does your car have an aftermarket manual fan switch?
I think the fan logic is part of the CCRM but I'd have to check the manual to be sure. If you haven't done so already, go to ebay and see if you can find an electronic shop manual CD/DVD for your car. Best 20 bucks I ever spent!

My 01 did that a few times. After the new engine it happened frequently. The coolant temperature sensor/sending unit replaced and it stopped.
