The heater fan comes on when I turn off the engine. So far all I've done is pull the heater fuse to keep the battery from going dead. Is this a relay issue or heater module?

If you are referring to the blower motor in the passenger cabin, a faulty (stuck on) relay is a possible cause but the exact cause would have to be determined in a circuit trace. If the circuit is powered even when it is commanded off, you have to use a voltmeter to determine exactly where power is entering the circuit. You can start with the control switch. If the switch is off, the contacts should be open. If the switch checks out, basically you have to trace back from the blower to see where it is being mistakenly powered. For obvious reasons, it is not recommended to buy any parts until you know exactly what has failed. If you request an electrical circuit diagnostic/repair, the responding certified mechanic will get this diagnosed and resolved for you, right at your location.
