NEW PRODUCT - Manual Fan Switch!

Another exciting product from PCM of NC!

We have just released a Manual Fan Switch for those of you in need of one. We take the guesswork out for you! NO splicing, NO butt connectors! Our harness installs right in line in the factory fuse box and includes a high quality switch for you to mount anywhere inside the car.

When the switch is OFF the fans operate normally as the car would control them. When the switch is LOW the fans operate at low speed, overriding factory control. When the switch is HIGH the fans operate at high speed, overriding factory control. (Note: Ignition needs to be on to run fans when engine is not running)

This is extremely useful for those of you who go to the track and like to force cool!



We've got this listed in our Camaro 2010+ section under special products if you'd like to check it out! Thanks for reading!

I doesn't harm anything, it basically grounds thus closing the relay and causing the fans to go on by working in front of the PCM so it doesn't realize its happening. Only issue is if you leave it on too long and kill the battery but that would take a while unless you went to a super tiny battery to save weight.

Gonna add this to my 3,000cfm flexalite fans.

Its already been stated you'd need to leave the key in and the ignition on to have it work. Yours was wired to a hot source, this one isn't. No dead battery.

Nope! It's simply an override. So when you're not using it (it's in the OFF position) - the fan operates as it normally does.

Excellent. I've been using the dvt controls on the scan tool to do this. Will this work on a 13 ZL1?

Got it yesterday and installed today! Removing the pins was kinda tricky, but not too bad. I have a switch panel in my center console, the supplied harness was short, but I added a few feet. It worked perfect today out driving around with it off.

Great product, and easy to follow instructions.

Thanks

Thanks for your feedback! We can always add more wire to these as well, we just kind of took a stab at it as we mounted ours closer to the dash, but we can start overshooting them as well.

Those pins are tricky!! Hopefully our modified paper clips made it easier on you.

Thanks again for your business and support.
