Auxillary fan wire in 97 & later ECM
I am wanting to get rid of the clutch fan on my car (Volvo 240 using 97 S10 4.3) and while I have acquired all the parts that are commonly used for electric fan swaps (Taurus 2 speed fan, Volvo 2 spd fan relay pack and BMW 2 speed fan switch).
The problem is that I have 2 temp sensors already (One for the ECM, and one for the gauge on the dash) so I dislike the thought of adding a third one, and on top of that the BMW sensor is a 14mm thread (like a bolt, instead of a pipe thread like we use in the united states) which presents a problem trying to find a place to even install the said sensor.
When I went through the wiring for the engine, I saw that there is a wire for an auxillary electric fan. Can that be used as the exclusive controller for the relay on my fan, or does that only work for like an auxillary condenser fan when the A/C is on?
Any idea what the on/off temps are?? ECM is from a 97 S10 2wd with a 5 speed.
Looking for info! Thnks!
