Well it was a relay, guessing not a large cost for a new one.

On a side note, if the fan fails, you can get a Ford motor + pigtail harness for the fan assembly. New 5.9 fans are hard to come by, factory does not sell just the motor, and a new fan assembly these usually costs in the region of 700-800$. New Ford motor (which is the exact same unit, with slightly different connector) with the pigtail is around 100$ shipped.

This just to let you know when the fan fails. It's usually the slow speed that dies first.

Mine runs for a certain time after I turn off the truck. Let it run and if it doesn't kick off after 10 minutes or so you know you have a problem. As a matter of fact, with the car now off and cool, put the fuse back in. If it kicks on, chances are your relay is shot.

Well im sure it is the relay (for now). I tapped on the relay and the fan shut down immediately. Thanks for the info on the Ford fan, likely will need that down the road.

The relays are about $50 each new.
