How To Wire Up Electric Radiator Fan

How To Wire Up Electric Radiator Fan – Electric Car Fans and Wires On the other hand, we have worked a little with relays and horns, now here is an introduction to electric cooling fans and how to connect them safely. This is mainly aimed at off-road vehicles, restorations, racing cars, etc. If the car already has an electric fan, a lot of work is done. The above view is a sample of some types of electric fans (some are not standard). Fan wiring diagrams range from the simplest to the most complex, so you can review them easily. Wiring Electric Fans This is actually the main focus of the site. Composition is always a student’s job (don’t forget you’re in school!). You don’t need many tools, just a good wire crimper and the usual tools in your mechanic’s toolbox. The parts you may need in addition to wiring (high power, high and low voltage relay control), relays, switches, temperature controlled switches or any of the high end electronic controls that are popular today. When wiring electric fans from scratch, you need to follow some basic electrical rules, but they are very simple. Here are some important tips before we get started – Use the correct size cord to power your system. Fuses or circuit breakers should be used to ground your car (or truck) in the event of a short circuit. Make sure the cables do not come into contact with moving parts of the fan or motor. Make sure the wires are not shorted or shorted (see note above about fuses) Make sure all electrical connections are clean, clear and tight. Let’s get into the other parts (well, besides the air conditioner) before we get to the programs! Click this link for a quick introduction to relay cables

Common Automotive Fan Relays Above are the most common relays found in automotive applications. It is important to remember how much power the fan system will absorb. A single 10 inch fan can draw 5-20 amps! If you are using 2 fans, fuse size, wiring and wire capacity are very important. Left side relay – Standard Bosch automotive relay type. Shoot for a good quality 40 amp version (not the cheap 20 amp like in the picture). These are the most common and easy to install. Central Relay – This is for high fan current systems. The relay is rated at 70A and has screw terminals which take a lot of work to fit. But the little extra work is worth it, as this transfer won’t have much of a problem with most fan programs. I personally like the integration and setup of this transmission. This is where I picked up the one I use on my cars – a Tyco 70 Amp Relay. It’s a few bucks more expensive, but this is a quality part with extra capacity that’s perfect for enthusiasts since relays are usually heavy. Lead relay – This is a 70 Amp cube style. I’m not a big fan of these as the main power connectors are very different and not easy to find. They work well and fit in a small space, but not a big fan (go figure). Amazon has them in many other places, but you need to make sure the 2 terminals are FAT style, or anything other than 70 Amps. Prices often exceed Tyco’s referrals. CAUTION: Some relays are fitted with a wired socket. Unless you have a wire gauge pressed into the wire or can look at the wire gauge, you should suspect a cheaply made harness connection. It’s best to make your own, if not, get a good quality connector for a high quality relay. Play it safe and check what you use.

Manual 2 Speed ​​​​​​Fan Control Well, if you see what is happening, you will say that it is not two speeds at all, but actually two speeds, one fan or two fans at full speed. You’re right, but I’m not sure anyone will like the “2 stage speed control” idea. Anyway, this is a complicated circuit, just a little bit. The idea in this case is a rocker mechanism that can control whether one fan, one fan or two fans are working. This is done by passing 2 of the appropriate value of the amplifier. The small triangle above the switch is the DIODE. This prevents the current from flowing in one direction and allows it to flow in the other direction. The part costs about 25 cents (parts 1N4001 – 1N4007 can be used). With some modifications this circuit can replace the low side of the circuit instead of the 12 volt fuse source (ask me if you need this and I will make it and send it) Function If you had a SPDT switch Center Off then 3 positions, left. , center and right. In the neutral situation there is no contact on either side and both fans would be absent. If you complete the rotation on the LOW side of the relay, only the right fan will turn on. When connected to the HIGH side of the switch, BOTH relays will operate and both fans will be ON.

Above – Some solutions to protect fans. There are several options when making fuses or circuit breakers. The only options

Far left – This is the built-in Maxi-Fuse harness. These are recommended! Nice thick strap and waterproof case

So these are good, cheap built-in fuse holders. Larger fuses rated at 20-100 Amps, are ideal for you

Middle – Standard ATO/ATC type fuse next to Maxi fuse. The ATO style can be used (a

Suitable in-line brackets) for ground reinforcement fuses. As you can guess, I choose the Maxi-Fuse. It is available in different versions

Best – This is a sensible option, a replacement for the automatic reset. I really don’t like the automatic

Part, but if you’re short on time, fix the problem and you’ll be good to go again without changing anything. The downside is that

These keep turning on and off (slight delay) until the problem is solved. These are available in many different ways

If the fan is rated at 10 amps, that is usually the amperage. At launch, enthusiasts could draw multiple amps from a single battery

Limit. For most hobbyists, a 20 amp fuse is a good idea to start with. This works with 10-12 amp fans

And keeps things safe. Usually a good start on top of that is 50% more amps to fuse and fuse

For example, if you are using an 18 amp fan, add 9 Amps (that’s 50% more) to get 27 Amps. They are 27

It’s an ampere fuse, so it’s around up to 30 Amps. When multiple fans are operating, it is often best to connect them individually if one of them is a short circuit

At least you have a second one to work with. If in doubt, check the manufacturer’s website, they usually offer something

While we’re talking about fuses, it’s also important to use a thick enough wire for high current connections.

Electric Radiator Fan Install Simplified?

On the ventilator. Relays draw very little power, but the fan is a pig. Use a wire size calculator to get a rough size.

In any case, I wouldn’t go smaller than 14 Gauge for very small fans. The bigger the wire, the thicker the better.

Simple Fan Relay Wiring The image above is a very simple and basic fan wiring diagram. It supports one or two followers and turns them on with a simple transfer cycle. The switch can turn the fans on and off manually. If temperature switches are used, these can be switched on when the engine reaches a certain temperature. Usually, but not always, these heat exchangers are single pin, body attached to the engine block or radiator, and both are usually based on older cars. Some newer cars may have a 2-terminal temperature switch, where one side will go to the relay and the other will go to ground. The “12 Volt Fused Source” wire goes to something like an ignition switch that can provide power when the key is turned on. In some cars it is connected to an always-on source (which still melts) so that the car cools even when the key is turned off. Just make sure you’re aware of the shortness of the condition and that it can lead to battery drain under unusual circumstances. Some cars have a delay that prevents this from happening.
