Default Parallel fam mod FAIL

I ran the hot wire from the fan to the a/c fan. However being in a rush i just taped into the hot wire of the a/c fan and left it connected to the car harness. So my problem now is the fan runs constantly and does not turn off even when the keys are out. Did I short something and what do I do to fix it.

The fan circuit is a switched ground with constant power. Google the "hakuna" fan mod. I think it is on the garage as well.

I ran a wire from one relay to another, so they both turn on. Very simple, very cheap, worked for....5 years till I got an MS and redid it. You just need like 10 feet of very fine wire (I used one strand from leftover ethernet)
