Electric fan override switch

I know I have seen it somewhere, but can not find it. How do you wire a override switch in line to manually control the fan? Thanks Roger

I bought the kit from UTV Inc. Its not just a matter of wiring in a switch, you need a relay and other wiring also. Theirs comes prewired and ready to go with full instructions.

Not sure why you think a relay is needed all your doing is making it think the thermocoupler is open.

I just installed a toggle switch and a wire to each red wire by the thermocoupler and never had an issue, done several atv's as well along with hundreds of other king quad owners.

You include a relay any time you are switching a load on and off. Examples are horns, lights, fans, AC and anything that has amperage behind it. It isolates the initial shock of the load from the rest of the electrical system.

I agree if you are adding a load but here you are just using the existing system and bypassing the thermocoupler.

Guess it boils down to preference, if a guy feels better putting a relay in it's a cheap piece just be sure to waterproof them
