yes this one
SPDT with Center Off Flat Lever Heavy-Duty Toggle Switch - RadioShack.com
Fan either off or low or high, you will need 2 relays, one for High one for Low. The low relay can be a regular 30-40 amp. I'm thinking you want something like this

Don't forget to turn it on

You will need to use ignition 12vdc then or the fan will not ever turn off. So the switch will connect to ignition instead of the battery then.

Yea I have it pinched in with a fuse to give the relay signal now. But when I get the switch Ill send the signal to the switch then when I flip it to high it will turn low off but when its on low and when the jeep is off it will all turn off. Does that make sense? Instead of getting the trigger from the battery its coming from "Transmission solenoid" fuse.

Anyone do the swap with the 5.9 fan and sensors? How would you wire it using the sensors so it comes on and off automatically?

so i got my dc controls 2 spd unit, and i decided against using a 17 year old fan from a taurus, so i started shopping around for different options, and i found an excellant one, if you're willing to spend the dough. its from Derale, part number 16919, its a 2 speed, flows 2400 cfm, and the metal shroud almsot fits the zj radiator perfectly.. just a thought for anyone not wanting a junkyard replacement.

Close up: you can see the coat hanger I used to poke through from the inside. Hook your wires to it and fish them back through.



I temporarily removed the washer fluid reservoir while I fished the wires through. It removes by unscrewing the two 3/8 bolts on either side, piece of cake.



Careful, the cap is not water tight!

Wires come through on the other side…

Something i found that works well with the issue of loosing washer fluid is to place a somewhat thick piece of plastic , lay flat over the opening and close the cap. No more leaky
You lose quite a bit of washer fluid after you fill it up say to the top cause when vehicle is in motion the fluid sloshes around and comes out of the top even with the cap on. The plastic works like a charm.
