xj-armor electric fan override

I did the lazy move and bought one of XJ Armors fan override kits. Seems like a great kit, but I can not get it to work. It is so simple all I need to do is run the one wire to a hot fuse and the other to the switch. Well, nothing is happening and have not heard back from Steve at XJ Armor yet. Am I missing something? Has anyone else installed one of these? Thanks

Re: xj-armor electric fan override

Ok... So after you posted the last thread about this kit and received not so kind reviews on it...

You still went and ordered it?

And now you're wondering why it's not working?

Go back and re-read the orginal thread...

Sometimes you're better off doing it yourself...

Re: xj-armor electric fan override

I have made better decisions in the past. Ordered the kit on Ebay on a whim even after reading all the feedback. Now that I have a switch and wire etc sitting around how easy is it to just do it myself w/o the relay?

Re: xj-armor electric fan override

Hi,

as i didn't found anything on the web about those kit I don't really know what you mean. But I think you want to manually switch the electric fan, don't you?
I installed this in my XJ 2,5TD (Diesel) too. The only thing was to install the switch. One cable to chassis-ground and the other to the relay which is switching the fan.

Maybe you can draw a small plan how you connected your swich. Also try top messure what you are switching. MAybe you also need chasis-ground to switch the fan?
