I like this design, but have become very dissatisfied with Derale. Within a week of installing the fan, The fan stopped working. I found that the temperature sensor went out. I was able to jumper this connection so the fan ran all the time the switch was on. I replaced the temperature sensor with one I bought from jegs.com. About a month later, the relay went out. I was on vacation out on a trail ride so just hard wired it to a switch (I know, bad practice, but it worked). A couple weeks later, the fan motor locked up.
Quadratec offered to exchange it... but I am done with this thing. I bought a fan from a Ford Taurus and have bolted it on and using a fan controller from Painless Performance. It uses the same type thermostat switch, so one component is ok.
