Re: Glove box

Thanks Bud, I picked one up at the Beaulieu Autojumble last year for £30. It seems I got a bargain!

BUTLERS!

A pair of Butlers rear license plate lights for sale on eBay at £999. Seriously, WTF?

Merry Christmas to my big forum family! You are absolutely invaluable to me in getting and keeping my E-Type on the road.

Re: Cooling fan switch

Thanks Layne that’s exactly where I moved it too so fan operational again. I have also added the override switch under the dash and replaced the switch in the header tank so should be all good to go.

Re: Cooling fan switch

Is this the correct location for the earth wires to be attached? (relay mounting screw) I relocated mine to this position but no earth. Could it be because the header is rubber mounted therefore insulated from the frame? https://i.postimg.cc/BnW2jW5Y/761-F4677-5649-492-A-8-E0-A-9373-EF2462-AF.jpg Pete

Re: Which cooling fan relay?

Unfortunately I don’t have an old relay. It’s fitted with a modern which is why I want to replace it. Good suggestion though if I can find an original one to use for the case.

Which cooling fan relay?

Hi,
Should the cooling fan relay be 3 pin or 4 pin?
The correct Jaguar part number C18122 (superseded to SRB111) at SNGB is 4 pin and is listed as “normally open type”
C17338 is 3 pin but is listed for the 3.8 as a horn relay.

Re: Cooling fan switch

A search of Jaguar relay part number C18122 at SNGB shows a 5 pin relay (SRB111). This is the one they list for the 3.8 cooling fan relay. Searching for C17338 listed at the same supplier has 3 pins and looks correct for the fan. Would this be the correct one to buy?

Re: Cooling fan switch

I’ve just removed the additional “hot” wire from the relay and connected the unused green wire from the harness. The fan is now working only with ignition on. I’ll now replace my fan switch and all should be ok. I’ll still add the under dash switch and replace the relay with an original type for aut...

Re: Cooling fan switch

Yes, I’ll give my Coolcat switch a go Layne, thanks. Phil, looking more closely at the wiring, I have the three correct coloured wires coming from the original harness that would have gone to the original Lucas relay (the green is not currently connected to my relay).There are also two black wires g...

Re: Cooling fan switch

Thanks for this Phil, much appreciated. I’ll have a close look at the wiring and see what has been done. I know there is one unused wire there too so five wires in total means two have been added. I will replace my relay with the original type too.

Re: Cooling fan switch

With regards to wiring in a fan switch, this is my non original fan relay. It has fours wires attached. The factory relay has only three correct? The Kenlowe controller has now been removed and the two wires now go to the header tank switch. Pete https://i.postimg.cc/tTJxNH7J/A4-A6-FC2-D-AF17-4-C49-...

Re: Cooling fan switch

Good question Phil but obviously the fan doesn’t switch off with ignition. It was like that when I bought it. Electrical isn’t my strong point either but I will investigate. I actually have a spare switch like yours so might save myself £23 plus post and use it as you have.

Re: Cooling fan switch

Thanks for your replies/suggestions. The fan is wired correctly and does switch off after about 10 mins as it takes that long for it to cool to the off temp of the switch presumably. The car was fitted with a Kenlowe fan previously and had the Kenlowe controller with the copper wire running into the...

Cooling fan switch

G’day all I’ve fitted an SU fan switch into my header tank. On at 80 off at 70. Car runs at just under 70 on the gauge. Clearly the new switch is too low as the fan comes on too early and stays on ages after the engine is switched off. I have one that I ordered from Coolcat along with my fan. It’s o...
