You should have the engine checked for overheating as this may be reason cooling fan stays on. You should check coolant level to see if it is low and if it is low then check for coolant leaks. If not low and no leaks then check for stuck closed thermostat if overheating. If not overheating then scan computer for possible codes pointing to the reason for stalling out.
