Yes, its a manual fan switch - it will shut off when you turn off the car

Ok....we gotta lil kink to work out....because when my car is off...the fans work fiune off the switch...turn the key to Run.....Fans turn off until PCM commands them on........Plus I'm not sure if this is the low speed or high wither I have going...but that doesn't bother me.

So when your key is in the "on" pos. or the car running the fans dont work but when your keys are not even in you can turn on the fans?

Also is that a led switch? (2 or 3 prongs on the back)?

fans will work when the car is running because of PCM control...just not at my command.

LED Switch, 3 prong.

Are you running power to the back of the switch? You don't need power you are just completing a ground connection. There is your problem then. . . . . . . .get a two prong switch.

If you want a light when it is on - run power to a led light, take the ground of the led light and run it to the switch.

If I don't run power to the back of the switch then nothing happens.....Switch is dead....I don't think I tried it with the key on when the power wasn't on the switch?

The green wire off the relay is a ground. When the PCM commands the fans to come on all it is doing is completing a ground - that is why you do not need power. Get rid of that 3 prong switch and get a 2 prong switch and put in inline with the wire that you spliced into the relay.

try this so you understand. . . . . . . .the wire that you spliced into the relay - take the other side and ground it out on the body. Your hand is now acting like the switch as you touch it to the body and remove it from the body.

All I need then is a switch with a load and ground wire then?


Nothing power wise?

This is gonna suck to find the exact same switch with 2 prong....because I had to cut up that center console piece for it to fit.
