Blower fan killing battery

Anyone ever run into an issue with the blower fan staying on once the engine is off and key removed? The fan speed has to be turned to off or else the blower stays on and kills the battery.

96 Grand Cherokee

Blower motor resistor. Located next to the blower, passenger side, basicly have to lay on your back on the floorboard to get to it. Just a couple of screws, not hard at all. HTH

Has happened on our 95, and 96 Jeep. Was the column switch that your key fits into. Switch from Jeep runs ~ $125, aftermarket ~ 75-80. However, aftermarket switches don't last that long! Ask me how I know!!
