On some makes of vehicle, the engine fan is supposed to keep running after the engine is shut off, if it was operating on a long trip on a hot day, for example. Come back to the car in 10-15 minutes. If the fan is still running, you have a problem. If it has shut off, all is well.

Something else is generating enough current to keep the car running. Electric cooling fan is a good bet, could be the alternator. Either one can act as a generator and produce enough current to back feed and keep the car running. Unplug each separately to see if one or the other is the problem. I would bet on the cooling fan.
