LR dealer wanted to charge me Usd 1.400 to change all the fans and module, they said it comes all in one pice now. But it´s too much money !! I took it to my mechanic, and he found the module it´s exactly the same than the FORD KUGA uses (Ford bought Land Rover in year 2000). That module is only Usd 70, so he put that one.
It worked ok for aprox 1 month, and now, the problem started again.
In some occasions, the bigger fan continues running after the engine is turned off.
My mechanic say now, the problem may come from the computer that gives the signal to the module.
I´ll have to go to the mechanic again ,, 🤦‍♂️
Good luck !

Reading this thread just saved me about $1400.00. Thank you to Defender777 and all of you for your input. I ordered my fan module from NAPA and paid less than 1/3 of the price the mechanic originally quoted me. Thank You and Thank You again!

The fan module is very accessible. It is right behind the radiator, on the frame holding the big fan. Look down next to the air filter on the driver side (US cars). One screw holds it on the frame and there are three cables connected to it. The cables have a little tabs that must be lifted before pulling the cable free. The cable on the top of the module supplies the power. This is the cable to disconnect if the fan in running non stop. Make sure you disconnect the battery before trying to unplug this cable! (Keep them fingers!!!)
I had removed the top cable to stop the fan and left it off. When I got the new module, i unscrewed the module and then removed the last cables. Putting in the new one on is just the reverse. I did use some dielectric grease on the cable plugs. Snapped the cable on the underside fitted the module in its spot and screwed the module to the fan frame, snapped in the last cable on and reconnected the battery. The fan was at peace.


I got the module from a local machine / parts shop here in Seattle "Autosport Seattle" Here is the link Autosport Seattle | Full Service Machine Shop and Parts. The replacement is not a Land Rover part is is actually made by Gates (the fan belt people!) Gates Control Module FCM135. I am sure Autosport would be happy to ship it to you. Or see if you can get a Gates module locally.

I tried to insert some photos but this reply would not take them??? So I attached a photo. It shows the module in place with the screw that hold the module to the fan frame and the cable that supplies the power. I hope this helps!

Hello, you stated that you provided pictures. Would you mind posting them again? I don't see them in your chat.

Thank you for

Hello, looking for help with the same issue. 2013 Evoque and the main fan will not turn off after turning the car off. Reading the great detailed info here, went ahead and ordered the module on Amazon for $39.
Took about 30 minutes to install (25 minutes of it was waiting for PB blaster to penetrate the rust so I can remove the single screw holding this module in place.
Installed the module and the fan was not running, but now the A/C was not blowing cold air. Trouble shooting further more, went back to the old module and with the fan running constantly again at least had the A/C running. Therefore, conclusion for now is, DO NOT BUY the amazon replacement for $40.
I am going to order the Gates Control Module FCM135 from a local parts store and see what happens.

I am so incredibly happy I found this thread. My fan was staying on and draining my battery. I had just had work done on the car as well and the battery had recently been replaced so was pretty frustrated.

I took my car to get diagnosed and was quoted almost $1500 to replace the module by a local mechanic that specializes in Land Rovers. I found this thread and ordered the unit from MotorGenic. It did take a while to arrive (about 6-7 days), but I installed it myself and I am no longer having the issue. Thanks for the help everyone. It did take me about 45 minutes to install it (half of the time was me struggling to get the screw loose, but once I did it was smooth sailing.

With the number of occurrences I've come across on various sites online, you would think there would be a factory recall on this issue.

I had the same issue with my fan never shutting off. Initially I had noticed that it would stay on longer than normal and eventually not shut off at all.. I disconnected the positive cable from the battery while on vacation for 7 days… When I returned I reconnected the terminal cable and my fan worked perfectly…

2013 Range Rover Evoque Pure - had the same problem, shut the car off, fan kept running and drained my battery. This thread saved me $2000..Ordered the part from Autozone for $169 (santech brand) fit perfectly and I was able to replace it myself (painfully). I say painfully because the Evoque engine compartment is compact and it's difficult to get to the space where the module is. I did remove the plastic engine cover and that gave me a bit more room. Replaced the part, jumped my car and I was back on the road. Thank you to all for all the great info. Landrover wanted to replace the entire fan assembly and after reading this forum thread, I realized that the module was most likely the culprit. Helpful tips...disconnect the top connector first, the ONE screw that mounts the part is to the right of that top connector. Be careful with that screw, it's easy to drop. A short phillips screwdriver is needed. The bottom connectors are difficult to detach, use the tab at the top of the connector and wiggle loose if you can only get one hand in there. When you move on to the bottom connectors disconnect the one to the bottom right and that will free up the module slightly and allow you to work with the last connector a little easier. Pic for reference.
