That is a very complex system and costly if you factor in the relays.

The ZZP fan switch is much less expensive and involves no relays that will eventually fail.

That is why I figure that one could maybe make a DIY kit for less money.

i used GM Sealed weather pack relays, and the Link Pdad posted is the one that i used...

my fan relays and switch cost me less than $.50 from the junkyard i dont think ZZP can beat that price

....from the junkyard,,,, being the operative phrase.

The ZZP switch kit is only $49.99 and dead simple
It doesn't use relays. It utilizes the existing relays.

ZZP'* kit:

Quote:
CAUTION:
This switch kit will operate the fans with the ignition off, useful at the track for rapid cool down between runs. Be advised to turn them off before you leave the car for any length of time. If left on, it will drain your battery. This warning does not apply for users of our fan timer module.

Works on '97-'05 Grand Prixs, just choose your correct year.
The casper'* kit is available through INTENSE and doesn't keep the fans on with ignition off.

The Caspers kit was the first system I bought. It doesn't work with +00 Bonnes. I sold mine to a GP Club member at WCBF05. Then I bought the ZZP system.

The trick I used to ensure I always remember to turn it off when leaving the car, is to wire in a light that tells me when it'* on.

I have never had a problem with it after 3 years.
