Wiring fk35 and taurus fan

I have the fan and control unit (fk35) all mounted up and working. I was getting 12v from the battery which is ok until I shut the car off and the fan runs another 15min draining my battery. Where in the engine bay can I get 12v that is either acc. or ign? Thanks

No load test. Maybe battery is getting old. I still would rather use acc or ign for 12v though. I don't need the fan to run that long after I shut the car off.

Re: Wiring fk35 and taurus fan

I bought the fk35 so I didn't need to use switches and relays. Can't someone tell me where an acc or ign hook up is under the hood. Anywhere so the fk35 only has power once key is in. Thanks

If you don't want to go directly from the ACC terminal on the fusebox you could splice into the wiper motor wire.

Get out your test light and poke it into the wires on the wiper motor. One of them will be hot when the key is on. As I recall, mine was a yellow wire.

Re: Wiring fk35 and taurus fan

I wired it to the acc in fuse block. Hopefully I dont get any feedback through the radio or anything weird. Thanks
