Question about 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7
Need to do this till I can afford a fix. I have a 10a 6 prong toggle and plenty of wire.
Simply buy a on off switch 30 amp or better automotive run this switch directly from the battery directly to the hot wire on the fan motor, FYI In some instances this will cause over run or Idling on after the ignition switch is turned off the fans produce enough back power to barely keep the engine running if this happens just take it alll ! apart and go get the proper parts immediately the run on can cost you a timing chain and much more.making sure to install a 30 amp fuse between the switch and the fan motors also make sure if you have 2 fans one for the radiator and one for the evaporator coil for your AC wire this one up to so your system does not over pressurize the AC system and possibly damage your compressor.Do not leave it this way long as temp differences will eventually not be in sync and will over heat and possibly damage your engine also running it this way will be harder on fuel also so get it fied soon as you can. thanks the FixYa team
