Yes Ive searched and read just about everything on this forum about Taurus fans.

1st. Car was running very hot the other day(250*) and it was ~80* out.
2nd. Radiator is new, fan clutch seems to work fine (no noises)
3rd. Car has a 195* Thermostat

I bought a Taurus fan and relays as well as a 160* TStat

Im thinking the Taurus fan should pull more air when the car is idling or at low RPMs. The stock fan is relative to Engine RPM, where as an electric fan is not.

Anyways here is a wiring diagram I made up. Im pretty sure this will work. With the exception of the 40 amp fuse...(fan might pull more than 40Amps)

Any suggestions would be great.

I might toss a relay in the switching wiring so you cant have high and low speed engaged at the same time. Or just be real cognizant of the switches.

The schematic looks pretty sound to me.

Good luck.
 
In other words dont have both on at the same time?

Like if I wanted it on High switch to low first then switch off low and switch on high?
Like let the fan come up to slow speed before going to high.


I think I read if you have high and low on they fight each other.
