Why? I wouldn't tow more than 6k if that if you went that route. You'll probably get a CEL on unless you can find someone to write you a tune to shut the fan code off. Not to mention you'll have to figure out how to turn it on when you put the A/C on.
Where to start ...electric fans would not be an upgrade, they just cant move enough air to cool under high load situations -- so towing would be out
the electric power needed to move large amounts of air will need to be generated by the alternator ...that is turned by the engine -- fuel saving would be nil
The P0528 code is the wiring harness for the current 'electric' fan on the truck -- broken? damaged in some way?
The vistronic fan on the truck is optimized for cooling as well as fuel mileage, as long as the system is working
so fixing the harness issue and checking to be sure the sensors are working, will get you back in the game
The vistronic system will idle the fan when cooling is not needed and variably lock the fan when max cooling is required
Various sensors on the engine and transmission regulate the amount of lockup
Your monitor system such ad Forscan or Torque Pro can monitor the temps as well as the fan speed and amount of lockup
Well I’m just trying to replace my mechanical fan clutch and could swear it was left hand thread.
Many of the fan clutches listed on rockauto state “standard clockwise” thread. I just did a water pump six months ago and only now realized the two parts wear similar and I should have done them both simultaneously.
I’m going to email rock and ask if the part description does not state “standard” - that it is indeed left hand thread or counterclockwise.
Weird there would be right/left threads on same engine...?

I’m looking for some direction here, my dad has a 2009 Ford F-250 6.4L he bought it deleted and it came with a SCT X4 tuner .. I’m guessing it took an updated via WiFi.. not really sure but it locked up so it had to be sent in .. when it came back it was unmarried and no files on it. Then he has...
My truck just started doing this, anytime I put it in reverse, I get a trailer wiring fault message that pops up on the dash. Any ideas where to start troubleshooting this? Getting ready to start camping season soon and want to make sure my integrated brake controller is working just fine...
