Can a Fox  A9L computer run an electric fan?  If so how does it need to be wired for the computer to control it?

I have a Taurus fan and would like to be able to control it with the stock computer.  I had bought a thermostat kit to turn it on and off but don't have a place to put the sensor.  I'm using the one on the drivers side of the intake for my temp gauge and the one on the heater tube is used by the computer.

What are my options?

  If you want a sample tune to look at let me know. I've been successfully controlling a fan with an A9L for a couple of years now.

The t-stat controller with the temp probe through the radiator fins works fine, I have used one for years.

Sorry for digging up an old thread..

Does anyone have a copy of this file? I'd like to eliminate my push in probe derale crap. It eats relays and requires constant readjustment. It makes me wish i still had a mechanical fan
