Re: [DML] LONG! Electrical experts: Fan relay wiring help

You are getting a little bit too worked up over the circuit breaker. The 
circuit breaker is completely bypassed in the different fan control modules 
(including the one you bought). Your previous mechanic completely removed 
it as it wasn't necessary in the setup he used as well. I wouldn't bother 
trying to add it since it won't get used and wasn't the best design anyway. 
As for the breaker you found, it's for the heater/AC blower motor.

If you wish to reuse the blue socket, you are pretty much finished with 
that. As long as it has the two black/green wires, that's all you need. The 
brown wire that would go to the breaker is not used with this fan 
controller. Now all you need to worry about are the two wires on the other 
controller connector. The green one on the module is ground, so that's easy 
enough. The red is the trigger wire. That as mentioned goes to the wire 
that was previously on the IGN terminal of those relays the mechanic added. 
If you like, you can add a relay socket for these two connections or just 
cut off the connector and wire them directly.

That's all there is to this! The wires that used to go to the BATT 
terminals on those relays are no longer required. Just remove them from 
where they split off the brown power wire. Now wrap it up in tubing or tape 
to prevent shorting. Since the fan controller module gets power directly 
from the battery and has it's own fuses, you don't need to worry about the 
different brown wires.
