Re: Clevo & AU twin thermos
I run each fan on it's own circuit with 30A fuse with one set to go at 60C and the other at 75C. Each fan turns on its own light under my dash so I know what is going on. I've also wired another temperature sensative switch (90C) to a reversing alarm I have mounted under the bonnet, for added insurance.
I found that the stock 60A alternator on my XE couldn't keep up with the fan's current demands so I installed a 120A alternator ("Agricultual use only"), otherwise the fans would slowly drain my big 650A battery. I think AU's came with an 85A unit from the factory to handle these magnificant fans. You can't use the AU alt because the pulley design is all different.
