Question Any interest in e-fan harness kits?

Hey guys,

Looking for a new wiring project to keep me busy this winter. Battery cable kits and linelock switch kits are still available, but demand has slowed down, my truck projects are wrapping up, trailer project and powerwheels project are wrapped mostly up, I need a new wiring project to keep me from going stir crazy over the winter lol.

Any interest in electric fan wiring harnesses? These would be unlike any other e-fan harness out there on the market.

These would work for either dual single-speed fans, or single dual-speed OEM style fans. If I can't come up with 1 design that works for both, I should easily be able to make two different styles since the only difference is the fan connection(s).

These wouldn't use cheap 12v relays, they'd be 70 amp Bussman Power Relay Modules, fully connectorized, have low speed/high speed (or single fan/dual fan) operation, a/c override, manual toggle switch, and incorporate my usual OCD wiring habbits.

I don't have exact pricing figured out yet, but I wanted to get a feel for how many I could move, because the more I buy in bulk the cheaper items are.

Thinking ~$250 range, possibly as low as $215-225 if we do a mini-GB on them if I get like 5 or 10 committed.

Thoughts/ideas/suggestions/comments/feedback/requests???


Few pics just for thought....first couple pics are the conventional style e-fan harnesses I built for a couple guys a while back. Similar to the other existing ones on the market though. The last several pics are the style I did on my truck using the power relay modules. Beefy, overkill, OCD, reliable, yet hidden and super clean looking!

Any interest?

I'd definitely buy one. Was looking to do this for a Raptor fan install and stay away from a controller.

I was about to ask if you had a pic of the raptor fan harness.....then it dawned on me I can walk outside tomorrow and look under the hood of my raptor LOL

I can see about making it work for a raptor fan as well.


I'm not a big fan of controllers either. Never seem to get quality/consistent performance out of them from what I've observed. Simple electronics/switches to perform the on/off seems to be plenty sufficient to get the job done, and in a reliable method.

Seems like a solid plan. Especially as nice as the raptor fan is

Okay seems like decent interest. I'll start figuring things out in the next couple weeks here. Hopefully have something ready for a black Friday kick off!

it'll work with any fan kit, I'll write up instructions specific to the various types if I can do it as an all-in-one style, otherwise I'll offer variants since it's only the fan connection that differs and won't be too hard to manage.


as for what turns it on, a temp sensor in the block. JDM/LFP/JLP/Summit they all sell them. When it hits a certain temp it'll kick the fan on. Or if you turn the a/c on it'll kick the fan on. Or if you hit the switch it'll high speed override.
