AAW Classic Kit 65 Question

Regarding electric fan wire (orange) on the front light kit.

What exactly does it connect to? It says "to electric fans".

I have a twin Spal fan system. The instructions for this orange wire , from the relays, says " connect to ignition switch+vdc when engine is in run position".

I'm not sure where that is.

I'm just not getting it. Can someone explain this to me please?

Thanks, Ron

"connect to ignition switch+vdc when engine is in run position"

I assume this is either a literal translation from another language, or someone wants to be very wordy.

I think they are just saying to connect to a switched 12v source. VDC = Volts Direct Current...+ = positive side of battery...

Just my .02.....Gary

Re: AAW Classic Kit 65 Question

The orange wire goes to supply the power to run the relay coils (not the fan power). The contacts in the relays, in turn, supply power to the fans.

The AAW guy, Donny, and I had a discussion about this.

Look down the thread a bit..at posts 2 and 9.

Re: AAW Classic Kit 65 Question

So the orange wire from the AAW front light kit, that says "to electric fan", connects to the wire from my Spal fan relay? Is this my 12 volt ignition source for the relay? I think I understand.

Not sure where you're reading this, and I write the instructions. LOL

Yes, That orange wire is the 12 volt ignition feed that should be used to trigger your fan relay.

Is this perhaps on the SPAL fan relay instructions?

Thanks Donny and Bikeron

Yes, that was in the relay instructions.

Ok, that's why it didn't ring a bell. Thought I was going batty.
