Well yeah, you're right; it uses the stock two wire temp sensor to get it's on/off signal, and I've only seen two others; the digital Billion AFC (over 225 euro new @ Nengun, incl s&h), and a <60 euro one wich is designed when captain caveman invented the round wheel (available @ Biesheuvel).
I find 150 dollar a bit much as well, but my knowledge limits itself to engine/ancillaries and brakes/suspension... I have no talent for electronics, and btw; electronics are traditionally overpriced; turbo timers, boost controllers, piggyback computers, etc.
Anyway, I've ordered a DIF dual e-fan controller yesterday... at least it'll be pretty
Bah seems like I`ll have to do the same then, you happy with the quality of the radiator? and now that where on the subject, where is the thermostat located, as i want to replace / drain my old coolant and refit a new thermostat and radiator.
Tnx Ian, ill find it then, Stefan to get back on the fan controller part if i get a kit and a few parts i can get it together for 60 euro`s, including shipment, if i got the pcb itself i can replicate the kit , and I could make them upgraded with solidstate relays for 2 fans no problem.
Also picking up the signial from the internal temp sensor as it gives of a voltake and will drop or rice depending on the make of the car, just need to figure out when you want it to trip, and voila 2 fans are running.
Only downside is that its either on or off, but a more cost effective sollution.
So its do able, with some knowledge to make DIY kits that most of us can understand, obviously 60 euro is expensive as its a premade thing, if i can duplicate that its way cheaper, pcb boards and components can be bought in bulk.
