Any way to control engagement of electric clutch on cooling fan?

My trans runs a little hot while towing, around 200. I wish I could have an in cab switch so that I could engage the electric clutch on the cooling fan to pull some extra air past the trans cooler when towing. It would also be nice when idling with A/C on in the Texas summer. Surely it is just a 12v feed or a grounding of a circuit that engages the clutch. If anyone know please help me out.

thanks for the feedback. I guess I am going to have to break down and get an sct or larger trans pan.

{sigh} They never listen, do they?


By the way, 1XY is 198, and 2AB is 203. Is there a difference, in the real world, between those two temperatures beyond one being 5F more than the other? Not as far as your engine coolant, engine oil, trans fluid, rear diff fluid, transfer case fluid, or brake fluid are concerned.

But what the hell do I know about this? I've only been doing vehicle thermal management for 15 years.

OK what is the max. temp for engine coolant in celcius. Just want to know as I monitor it via the cluster. Also where would be the best place to tap into for a real oil pressure gauge?
Thanks again for help with the oil leak fix /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif
