Hey, I was wondering if I could just install an electric fan and have it run all the time. I don't have an AC, and I'd like to run with a normal thermostat. Would this pose any problems?
Interex_87 said:Nope, theres no problem with running them all the time. Thats how I've got mine hooked up. Even though the fans are hooked up to a relay with a thermostat that probes into the radiator, I just turn the thermostat all the way down so the basically run all the time, unless it like 20 F degrees!
Hey man, well you have to hook up the relay to an IGNITION positive. Your currently hooking up your + to a constant positive and thats why you have to turn your knob everytime.Mk threeing said:

I found that the closest ignition positive signal is on the fuel pump resistor box. It's on the drivers side above the fuse box and next to the strut tower. It's silver in color. Use a tester to find the positive wire ONLY when the car is switched in the ON position. I'll take some pictures tomarrow of my install.
Yonaga said:You want to hook the skinny switched one up to an electric relay which you can buy at any auto parts store. The relay should hook a fused 14 gauge wire from the battery to the fans. This way the switched wire will only need to draw minimum current; it will just be enough to turn the relay on, which will allow you to draw current straight from the battery. Make certain you put an in-line 20 amp fuse close to the battery. Do not hook the fans up without the fuse.
They sure dicked up the head gasket stuff. You can never have too much cooling capacity, anyway. Especially in hot-ass Texas.SoCalSupra said:Do you think toyota made an inferior cooling system?
