    you dont cut the 17 wire at all, strip back casing and ground it if u want it to run ALL the time. having a switch is the best idea however.

    cougar20th:

    Yes, your location for the ECT sounds right. If you have a good ECT that is connected and the fan still doesn't come on, the problem lies elsewhere, maybe in the relays inside the IRCM.

    I don't know which speed fan runs with ECT disconnected.

    Could someone post a picture of The ECT

    Could someone post a picture of The ECT so I know what I am looking for. I am having fan motor and temp gauge problems.

    Leave the ECT sensor connected. THe ECT does more than just turn on the fans. It controls engine performance for the most part.

    Disconnect it as a last resort to prevent overheating.

    for now its the only way to keep it cool. does anyone know how to test the relay box in front of the air filter? are they the same as a non sc car.
