The electric fan is getting power directly from the battery via a solenoid, and controlled by thermostatic controller. If I apply the power to the HIGH (blue wire) side, my voltmeter reads that I am getting 16
volts coming out of the unused LOW (brown wire) side. If I switch it up and apply the power to the LOW side, the HIGH side has 8 volts coming out of it. This doesn't seem normal?
A week ago I removed the stock cooling fan and I did the Ford Taurus electric fan upgrade. It has been working great thus far and I am very impressed with the results. But...
I have been running the fan on HIGH (blue wire) only, getting power directly from the battery via a solenoid and using a thermostatic fan control
to turn the fan on and off based on temps.
After being satisfied with how everything was working, I decided to wire it up to take full advantage of both the HIGH and LOW speeds it offers. Before making any changes to my current setup I was messing around with a voltmeter, and with the fan running on HIGH getting power through the blue wire, I am reading 16
volts coming through the unused LOW (brown wire) side. If I switch it around so that the LOW wire is getting power, I am getting 8.5 volts coming through the HIGH side.
I dont know much about electric fans, but this does not seem right to me. Is this situation normal? Thanks for the help, and reading all of that.
