Electric fan install (switch optional)
« on: January 08, 2011, 04:40:06 PM »
Right I've been talking to a few people latley about electric fans (sam may remember the convo ;) ) but the easiest way I can think to do it is as follows

(will post pics when I get the gear but atm I've got some props from other cars)

Tools:
wire cutters
wire strippers (nail clips will work for both using teeth to strip wiring is not advised)
socket or ring spanner for batterey terminals on mine its a 13mm
soldering iron (if you want to do it properly)
philips screw driver

Parts:
Length of wire
switch (optional)
solder
heat shrink
fans


step one
remove head unit and surround

step two
locate hole in fire wall and feed wire through to dash

step three locate the ignition wire which powers the head unit on it should be blue

(if your using a cheeseblock to hook in an aftermarket head unit just tin the wire and put it into where the blue wire is pluged in)

Note more to come cars at a mates getting a 25det neo atm :D

Yep  I recall this discussion :)

I think you missed out a relay as one of the parts required!

Here's an optional part that we discussed:

You can replace the overtemp sensor (normally switches on the fan in front of the a/c radiator when temps are really hot) at the bottom drivers side of the radiator with this part from repco to auto switch the fans on and off.

tridon brand part no TFS141

It's common to a lot of mitsi's and comes with the rubber o-ring, etc

80 deg on 85 deg off

Here's a pic of the standard one and the tridon side by side.

I've got it wired up for mine atm to come on and off with the ignition I still need to wire in a switch for when the cars just got the headunit going and still got to sus the relay.

I just got wiring info for the 25 so got to do that today when my mate wakes up lol

Lots of people do that but it'd annoy the hell out of me, no need for the fans to go all the time. The part I listed is cheap as it's real common in mitsis and means no need for a manual switch or anything like that (though you can wire a switch in as well for burnouts if you so desire)

But it comes down to personal preference on how you want it setup :)
