You cant buy the switches individually anymore. However, you can buy them already installed in the T fitting with the radiator hose for about $150 a section depending on where you get it.

I recently read a thread where a guy found a a direct plug in switch that worked prefectly and he even gave a part number. Ill see if I can find it again.

I recently replaced my low relay switch (upper hose) I found a part # doing a search on the web... I found a guy that had replaced his with a part # from auto zone part # SU109...$15.00 I just did mine last night and it plugged in perfect and now my low fan switches on when it's supposed to....

Not sure if the High relay switch (lower hose) is a differant temp?

Hope this helps...

The switches are both the same. The reason they operate at different temps is due to one being in line before the radiator and the other coming after the radiator. The front switch comes on about 200 degrees f. By the time the high temp switches on, the engine is at about 220 degrees f.

It will prollly remain running as long as that temp is met? and should shut off when it drops below that temp.
