    i have installed the ford windstar fans and wired them per the tech article on this site.

    they work ok, cool the engine down fast as can be, but they do not come on without the manual switch on. the thermostat os nopt kicking them on, i checked the wiring and im 99% sure that it is correct.

    any ideas?

    thanks

    What happens if you try and activate the fans with the wiring right at the thermostat?

    I went to the tech articles listed for the site and didn't see a write-up.. Was this just a thread?

    this is the tech article i used.

    how do i activate them right at the theromstat?

    paul, the schematic gave me a headache lol.

    i can driver her, but the fans would be on all the time.

    i have the thermmostat into the neck of the intake, so i would think that would be fine.

    i should be able to leave the switch off, and the thermostat should kick them on, but right now, i have to leave the switch on.

    im also on my 4th vodka tonic, so if i dont make sense right now, eat me lol


    thanks
