I have one that kicks on with temperature in my 1986 GL Sedan and it kicks on when the engine reaches running temp, and will stay on if I turn the engine off but keep the key in the on position (where all the lights stay on in the dash)
Yours sounds pretty normal. I wouldnt re-wire it because as pointed out - it would be a hazard while working under the hood.

but should it not continue to run when key is off, to cool water down? All cars I have had in past and presently, run after car is off..
The water/coolant will cool itself with time. Although if you want to. Leave the key in the on position til the fan shuts off after driving (shouldnt be more than a couple minutes)

Vegablade, you have yours running all the time?? See, mine was originaly wired that way by the past owner, but during the winter it was hardly getting operating temp.
I had mine that way all winter and it always came up to operating temperature even when in the 20's while driving down the snowy highway. Do you have a thermostat in it at all? If so what temp? I do not have a clutch fan, only the auxiliary one, that's why its wired that way.

You could probably wire it to a timer pretty easily, too. But like the others said, once the car is off it isn't producing any more heat, and the water pump isn't running so whatever water movement is happening is due to the heat gradient and not the water pump.
