Fan lock up.

Is there a way to put a manual lock up switch on my stock fan. Would be nice to lock it up full speed before it needs to when I'm in the mountains. For some resone when I'm pull heavy I can't hear it running full speed but my temps is 220-235 water temp.

Re: Fan lock up.

I believe you can have a tune written that will engage your fan according to the parameters you specify.

Why not put on a fan clutch for the snow plow optioned vehicle? They draw in more air at lower speeds I believe.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust syatem, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

Re: Fan lock up.

Because I never thought of that but that is a great idea. Our dully had that and the fan ran a lot sooner and more often. Thank you. That's what I'll do.

Re: Fan lock up.

the fan clutch is an electro-viscous type controlled by the ecm,anywhere from 0-100% engaged at any time based on programming.no sense in over complicating it.while towing,your defuel is set low enough that the fan most likely hasnt even engaged fully to begin cooling.check oil temp vs. coolant to rule out the oil cooler.then get an sct or change the defuel parameter.

Re: Fan lock up.

Thanks for the help.
I have a sct and edge insight, temps stay around 5-10* most all the time, after a long hill 15*. Need to get to a egr delete soon. Help the oil cooler.

Re: Fan lock up.

Sorry, got another thread and this one confused.yours isn't de fueling lol.i still think the non plow setup is capable of cooling it.what are your egts when this happens? Also with ids you can engage the fan to test it.maybe you have a bad clutch.
