Fan switch

Where is the fan switch located on a '84 Aspencade. I want to install a toggle switch so I can control when the fan kicks in but have no idea where the OEM switch is located. Can anyone help? Thanks

daljaz :The fan is controlled by your temp.switch behind the radiator,there are two way you could add a switch. 1 put a n/o switch across the two wires going to temp switch when you turn this switch on it will cause the fan to start running. 2 dont know if temp switch makes contact to ground or applys 12vdc to fan need to check with meter but you could install switch from battery to fan. may sure if you do #2 that you put a fuse on it. ( note there is a fuse under your seat that states it is for the fan) have seen it on my 84 aspey when I had seat off . lots of luck Hal
