2006 F350 diesel fan wiring diagram

I have a overheating problem. Replaced thermostat haven"t tested under load at hot day. ...I got some advice that I could ground one of the fan wires to make fan run at full speed. The fan doesn"t seem to be throwing out a lot of air. I did do a 5 mile run after putting in thermostat and temp on both gages normal.

ground the blue wire on the engine side of the fan connector

it may throw a code but not a CEL and it will lock up the fan but only to a point
you may still hear it roar load and lessen when at higher speeds

Wiring torn apart

I got shroud out so I could splice wires and want to know if Butt connectors would be a good choice. There are 5 wires running to fan but basically we are just locking up the clutch to get max.rpm?

I did this mod before I got a BPD fan clutch adapter. I just used a wire tap so I wouldn't have to cut the wire. Then run the new wire from the tap to your switch and ground the other side of the switch. When you flip the switch you'll be grounding that blue wire and the fan will come on. It may take a little time for the fan to react when you flip the switch.

It's the connector at the top of the fan shroud. Tap the blue wire on the engine side of the connector inline with a Scotch-lock (or similar) and run to a switch. Run the other side of the switch to ground. Do not cut the blue wire.
