Subject: Radiator Fan is killing my battery!

Hey everyone. I have a 1988 Saab 9000. After purchasing the vehicle from the previous owner, I noticed that the radiator fan would stay on after the car had shut off (i'm not sure if this is normal). some months later, the fan switch went bad, and i replaced it. After replacing the fan switch, I began to pay more attention to the fan, seeing that it now switches on whenever the car is started, regardless of how cold the engine is, and it will stay on for 10 or so minutes, regardless of how long the engine is running. This has been causing my battery to go dead whenever i turn the car on for a short period. I could really use some advice on this one. Could I have possibly hooked the fan switch up wrong? -Will
