Nevermind, can't post photo!!!
I overkill stuff so I'd add one more 2 amp (or so) fuse where I tapped into the "key on" hot before the switch. That way if something shorts in the new wiring, the factory wiring should still stay hot and not blow the factory fuse to whatever you tap into. Wouldn't want to cause the lights to go out a night because your add on wiring shorted
I'm a moderator, so I can edit your posts. Nothing showed up in a normal view, but I knew you hadda have something in there that wasn't working. I used the edit feature to look at what you had posted, which was an imgur URL embedded in URL and IMG tags.So does KLRForum have AdTracker?
Are you guys looking at algorithms???
And how'd you get the photo I CAN'T POST?!?!...
Hey you lost me a few electrons ago but if you understand, any part of, what you just said,,,, it could be "that easy"......I'm thinking to Power my 2nd Switch with the + and - IN, and the + out would splice into the + wire of the Fan... could it be that easy? ..........
You should have said Russian hackers got into his PC and stole the image.I'm a moderator, so I can edit your posts.

Problem is, that dog won't hunt, plus your imgur URL did not have a '.jpg' ending, meaning that the URL was not directing the forum to an image file. That dog won't even get off the porch.
What I did was I went to the imgur URL, saw the picture, right clicked and selected "Open image in a new tab", which gave me the picture and a URL with a '.jpg' ending.
I put that URL in my post with the "Insert image" tool and some fella named Bob claimed he was your dad's brother and there ya go.
Simple, really, especially when you're a good looking guy with a groovy personality. Describes me to a "T"; I'm just a warm, caring human being. The rumors about me be a cranky sumbitch are only mostly true.
I'm supposed to be doing some real work, so I'll get back to you later with the how and why of a fan switch unless @Damocles comes along and does it first. But, yes, you don't need a relay on that because the stock circuit has a relay in it. You just put the switch from a brown wire to the relay trigger. Draws only milliamps.
And to think I was going to 'Switch' the Blue Wire, the Power Lead, and 'Closest to the Fan'. I woulda found that I had forgotten to account for the fact that the Thermo-Sender was STILL IN CHARGE of PowerToFan!!!You get the idea, though.
I know I'm an old nag, a ninny, a nattering nabob of negativity, a nitpicker, a nemesis, a nettlesome neurotic, a notorious nuisance, but I don't like solder....ALSO learned last year that SOLDER CAN GO BAD!!!...
PREACH ON BROTHA MAN!!!I know I'm an old nag, a ninny, a nattering nabob of negativity, a nitpicker, a nemesis, a nettlesome neurotic, a notorious nuisance, but I don't like solder.
I think it has its proper place, which is in stationary electronics, but not in vehicles' wiring looms. It is rigid, stiff, corrodes, needs a lot of strain relief, and is generally a giant PITA.
In the aerospace industry we went away from soldering stuff before my career even began. Properly crimped connections are much better in terms of wear and tear and general survivability. Nothing in airplanes, race cars, race, bikes, production cars, production motorcycles, is soldered unless it is on a board and in a box (think CDI and VRR).
Yeah, it costs some money because what you need to do is do the same sort of job that the wee Thai ladies do when they make the wiring loom. It requires a quality terminal like those made by Yazaki, Sumitomo, Furukawa, Deutsch, and it also requires special crimping tools which aren't cheap. But it is better, faster, and easier once you get the hang of it.
I'll STFU now.
