    Just looking for some insight on this.

    This week I’m going to be wiring in a new set of radiator fans; however, I can’t use the connectors for it.

    My passenger side fan connector is completely fried and my drivers side one is gone. (One of the past owners removed it and soldered the fan directly to the harness with speaker wire)

    Im wondering if anyone has wired their fans directly to the harness (no connectors) and how you did so. Any practical advice or tips for me would be greatly appreciated.

    (Here’s some pictures of the fried connector I’m looking to bypass so you can see what I’m talking about. The other one is literally just a taped off nub of speaker wire)

    If you wired the fans directly to the harness, you wouldn't be able to remove them separately. Your best bet would be to retrace the wires that the PO "soldered", and replace the speaker wire with the proper wiring, and install an aftermarket 4-pin connector set so that you can have it able to be disconnected, and it'll be properly wired up.

    You don’t want to have to cut and splice every time you need to remove them so at the very least some aftermarket connectors is the thing to do.

    I agree with the fellows who say replace the plug . Your going to want to hit a scrap yard because I looked up the OEM plug and was shocked by the price of $88.35 . It comes with eight inches of wire so it needs to be soldered in anyways .
