Outside of fixing it the right way you can do this.Find a open spot in
the fuse box that has 12 volts to it with the engine running, run a
fused wire (be sure to put a inline fuse in at this point and use a
heavy gauge wire) through the firewall making sure it doesnít rub on
any metal then connect it to your fan and the other wire of the fan to
a ground such as the motor or battery.This way you donít have to keep
unhooking the fan everytime.It will come on with the key
Make sure you have the fan wired correctly.The fan should pull air
through the front of the radiator/blow air towards motor.
