Hello,


i have a question.

can i use this Temp-switch
http://www.kfzteile.com/produkt/temp...ein/11965.html

to control the E-Fan (Taurus 3,8 2 Speed)

My Plan:

I would take the switch, with an Inline Hose Adapter,
to use the 87C = 188.6F to turn low speed (over an 40A Relais)
The 97C (206.6F) for full speed (over an Relais and a switch that turn off Low Speed)

If the A/C makes problems, and i am Towing my Caravan, i also planned to take a small Fan, that's placed in front of the Radiator, and turn on when the A/C is on. to increase the overheating.
Or does the E-Fan works so good that i can Tow my Caravan and use the A/C, without any problems?




So i need for that:
The Taurus 3,8l E-Fan
2 Relais (3 with the extra A/C Fan)
1 Switch to run only 1 Fan-Speed at one Time
The In-line Radiator Hose Adapter
The Temp-Switch MOdel :
a: http://www.kfzteile.com/produkt/temp...ein/11965.html
or
b: http://www.kfzteile.com/produkt/temp...ein/21832.html

is this possible?
Sorry for my bad English ;-)

greetings from good old Germany

vince

Vince, your English is just fine - welcome to the forum.

I'm not sure you will see much, if any improvement by running a pusher fan on the outside of the grille or radiator. I've been told that they can actually slow down the air a bit.

Your temp switch sounds like a promising idea though.

Oh, and I got my relays out of a Cadillac at the junkyard. CHEAP and waterproof housings. (even came on a little 3 relay bracket..)

The Taurus fan will smoke a 40 amp relay on High, eventually.

If you turn on Low at 189*, the fan will always be on Low with a 195* stat.

Hi,

so it will not overheat or go over 206F when it is running only on low with an 195F Thermostat?

Can i use the 92C/197,6F switch for the Full Speed for a better performance?

thanks

It will go over 206* whenever you exceed the cooling capacity of the system. Doesn't matter what thermostat.

With the stock 195* stat, I would use the 197* switch for Low, and a 210-220* switch for High.

You don't want to overcool. They don't run right when you do. Everything is designed around 195*.

Do a "froogle" search for "25530731 relays" and it will tell you what all these relays came in.

I wired it so the low would turn on (using one relay) with the temp switch, high would run (with the other relay) when I flip a switch to high, or off (water crossings) when switched off.

I couldn't put my hands on a 3 way switch so I just have the temp operated low and the off. I left it that way, never had any problems.

So in summary, I only use the low. Never had a problem with any of it. (The first temp switch I baught was bad, the only "new" part!)

Awesome,man.... I wasn't sure how well high would work for me, mostly because I was afraid it would pull too much power off my battery. Some folks on here say you have to upgrade your alternator. I didn't, but I just run low...

Anyway, I haven't had to mess with mine at all. Did you use the junkyard relays? And what kind of temp controller are you using?

Hi Vince,

What efan are you getting?

I see a problem with that diagram if you will be using the Taurus fan. It is a 2-speed fan and you can't have power to the High and Low at the same time. That will burn the fan motor. Check this out

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/e...ematic-467329/

Notice the "Lo Disable Relay". It kills the power to the fan Low when the High thermoswitch engages. There is a chance that the "Dual Temperature Switch" in your diagram handles this. Actually I can see it doesn't. "Normal speed is run through a big resistor, limiting the fan operation. When the High engages, the fan gets battery power and the resistor is shunted.

So this diagram is for a single speed efan, not a 2 speed.

Yes I guess you could test in the kitchen with boiling water.

Andy
