This may be a dumb question that has already been covered but..... I keep seeing people talking about buying relays, fuses, temp sensor, etc...for the install. Why can't you just pull the needed items from the donar Taurus? I'm definitely a electrophobe when it comes to electrical stuff but I would like to do this to my 2.5 on the cheap/easy. It seems to me that the stuff needed for it to run right should be on the Taurus (follow the wires)?. Someone set me straight.

After thinking about it, I realized it was probably going to the ECU and yes, just easier to go find a relay elsewhere. Went to the junkyard this weekend and found plenty of fans and plenty of relays. Oh yeah, I read on here somewhere about Cadillacs having the waterproof relays and that is right also. I got several out of a Caddy, all I know is it was a "northstar?". I love the junkyard..... I recommend them to anyone.
Over the last year my wj has been plagued with cooling problems due to the relay and fan motor so I am really leaning towards doing a taurus fan set up on it but after tons of searching I still cannot find anyone that has put a taurus fan in a 4.0 wj. Does anyone know if the taurus fan will fit in my wj?

I got my relays out of a Cadillac at the junkyard while I was getting my taurus fan. I got three of them in case one didn't work. They were about $2 a piece I think. They were the heavy duty water proof ones. I don't know how much Amperage they are meant for but I think one was for the e-fan on the cadillac and they all had the same part #. My fan is working great. Oh yeah, they only have 4 wires on the plug, but five terminals inside the relay so I did have to rob a wire out of another plug to make a relay with the five wires. I would recommend the junkard relays before spending a bunch of money on new one(s).
