Adding a relay in between would still mess with it. Quad Driver A monitors the voltage of the low speed fan regardless.

Adding a fan in one of the cooling tubes would be cool (no pun intended) but it would restrict airflow above 30 mph.

I think ultimately, the high speed fan override is the best course by itself. When you want cooling, you want the best, right? I'll probably go to a spst switch, and go with high speed only, the next time I tear this apart.

I hardly ever use the low speed setting. It'* not as effective as the high speed. If I want low speed fans, I just leave the A/C on auto where it normally is anyways.

My AC causes one fan to go low speed, and the other to go high, or possibly both to high. Definitely not both low. I'd have to check.

I'd rather not have my AC on to cool the car (by forcing the fans to high), as that robs hp. Now I can cool the engine better (a little more hp) and not have the AC robbing even more. It'* what you call a win-win situation

Writeup/pix!! I'll have an extra switch for this. actually a DPDT switch, so i'll be interested in the high/low one, regardless of SES lights.

Mods that set SES lights, HAVE to be good

I really don't mind the light. Might come in handy some day, being able to set one at will. I won't discuss my idea in public

I have pics. Just haven't uploaded them yet.

For my 93 (and probably all 92-95 SSEi'* and 92-94 SE/SLE/SSE):

Ground the wires circled in blue. Do it through a switch. Do NOT cut the wires. Splice INTO them.

Screwdriver below them. Release the metal tab. Look at the empty relay socket to the left (passenger side) to see what I mean.

Got it all done, except for putting the switch in... I want a SPTT so I have center off... nobody in town has that in a submini rocker that i've found yet... Luckily I have Tomm off.
