I think Flex A Lite has woring diagrams on their web site. THe green compressor wire is the one I tapped into for my fan, not a Flex though. You should only use that wire to trigger the relay thats built into your fan. The fan should get its main current from the battery or distribution block. Theres a chance your fan may have a faulty control unit.

thats what I was thinking...so I unplugged the wire that I spliced into the a/c wire, from the fan and turned on the a/c...nothing happened and the fuse blew.....I guess I screwed up my a/c somehow, but no one knows how.
