Fans Mod -- How To

Here is a How-To on the Fans Mod. Since I haven’t been able to find it anywhere on the net, I’ve decided to do it myself and show everyone else how to do it as well. What this modification does is it enables your two cooling fans to run whenever your car is turned on, or when it is in the “On” position.

This is a fairly inexpensive mod and it took me less than ten minutes to do and take the pictures. For this mod, you don't necessarily have to disconnect the battery for this mod. You can choose to or don't, I didn't even think about disconnecting the battery until just now, but when I started the car nothing seemed to be amiss.

What you’ll need: ~10” of Gauge 10 Copper Wire, Male Terminal Disconnects (10-12 Gauge), Wire Stripper, Crimper, and Needle-Nose Pliers (pliers not shown in picture).

(There should be a map of the Fuse/Relay Locations on the underside of the Fusebox Cover.)
1) You want to open the fuse box located under the hood by the cowl on the driver side and pull on Relay "RL-15". This relay should be Gray.

2) Remove Fuse "F1" with the Needle-Nose Pliers. You may want to wrap the pliers with electrical tape in case you don’t want to scratch up the fuse. This should have the number "40" on it.
