    So i got my free windstar fans, but the harness was cut in half, so i have seperate harnesses, and i thought,, hmmm maybe i can wire one to come on when the temp hits 190 and then wire it so both come on at 210... but how can i accomplish that??

    Maybe another way, but just add another relay, find a temp switch that is on/off when you want it for the second fan, finished.

    I can think of lots of reasons to want to do it like you suggest, I say go for it.

    Napa's Echlin catalog is pretty good about showing on/off temperatures, wiring schematic, and threads for the temp switches.

    Hmmm... sounds familiar Dorian...lol

    I wired my Windstar Fans just how you suggested. Both fans are on seperate circuits and redundant. I am using thermal switches off of a Camaro to switch them on automatically, while having a master on and off switches in the cab. I got them at Napa. To simplify the installation of those switches, I got a water outlet off of a 80's Chevy Pickup, the kind with the provisions for the thermail vacuum switches (one hole needed a bushing though). They use the same connecters a knock sensor, so they were pretty easy to find and wire into the system.

    Ive got a presentation in a few hours, I'll make a more detailed post later
