Good idea! I would love to do that on mine, hook it up to an uplifter.

what kind of manual control do you want? off and on? What about AC?

You need a variable switch to do that. OR, get your custom tunes adjusted to what you want.

im looking to have a switch that is just a on off to have the fan run on high when i tell it. from what ive seen the fan has 3 settings low medium and high and is electronically controlled. so my question is is the electric signal that controls the speeds just a 12 v signal that goes through different wires or is it a higher voltage that veries in voltage.

You could also have an "OFF" switch, and the "ON" side will just RE-connect the electricity.

I don't know if it's possible, you might set a code from the PCM.

Actually, it doesn't operate like you guys are describing; You guys are describing the operation of an electric fan.. The clutch engages based upon parameters that the PCM is monitoring. It applies more or less force to the clutches to engage the fan.

That, and if you apply voltage to the wires and backfeed the pcm, I'd bet you will cause issues. At the very least a fault code, at worst a fried PCM or non-functioning fan.
