    How do you want it wired? On a thermostat or just a switch? Flex-a-lite controller or something from another manufacture? Have you cut the wires right at the fans and given them direct power to ensure its not the fans and just the wiring?

    there are 4 wires coming off of the fans (2 blacks and 2 whites) into two leads so I have a black and a white lead...in the truck there are the two wires that used to connedt to them when I hook them up I get nothing (thats with the truck hot) theres a temp sensor in the top of the rad. that goes to the terminal block that looks like it s part of the fan install .so I assume its flex-a-lite nd wired for thermostat control.what do you think?

    no I just pulled it out of the truck today. the wiring looks like it was done quite a while ago and not the cleanest install I've seen,I need to put power to the fans and see if they're working. if so, then its the wiring.but I will be checking out the site thanks

    Yeah I realize I'm not very helpful but that's what I do in those type of situations.
    On a similar note..I really want one of those fans so consider yourself lucky you have one.

    Email Flex-a-lite for the wiring diagram. That control box is kinda tough if you dont know much about wring.

    Your other option is just use a relay and either a toggle switch or trigger it off your ignition or alternator so it comes on with motor. May be more simple.

    Sorry if you were local id help you rewire it but im not great at explaining this stuff, just doing it.
