Pull the relay and jumper the 2 correct terminals in the relay socket. Memory says there are 2 large and 2 small terminals and you'll want to jump the 2 large together. Proceed with a DMM first because I don't want to hear bitching if my memory is off.

OFF TOPIC: Buyer beware, this guy is selling numerous items at the for sale section and also at Miata.net classified. Unfortunately I made a mistake and paid for the Ratsback spoiler he was selling at miata.net. I paid for it on 2/9/2009 and this guy keep giving me the run around on shipping the item. Now he is not even responding to any of my email.

Currently there is another guy at clubroadster.net that also having an issue with him. Also he scam someone before at a MR2 forum: **** Paypal. - Toyota MR2 Message Board

We need to get this guy busted since now he is running the same scam at 3 miata forum.

^^ keep trying to get your money back. He eventual stuck to his word and gave me a refund for an item i didn't receive (months later). search CA18det and you will find my detailed post.

He is not trying to sell anything in this thread tho, so lets just try to help him out and answer his question.

I've never had a problem with Brian. Though I've always met him in person. Considering it was only last thursday, give it a few more days.

Also, Brian you could just wire a switch for the fans. I wired mine to my cruise control switch. Or you could just unplug the fans and run a line to a 12v power source.

Mike over at anything mazda sold me two axle for a good deal, but it did take a month and a half to come.

Not sure if Mike and Brian are from the same place.
