the stock fan doesnt need a switch, its not electric. it works on a coil of wire growing and shrinking to decide how tight it is on the shaft to determine at what ratio it spins to the rpm of the e-shaft pulley.

its for the second gen duh but anyway i went through the haynes manual and found out there is (well used to be) a small efan in front of the radiator witch uses the switch to turn it on. i think its a seconday cooling fan and also for the ac condensor fan but yeah i dont need the connection for it b/c i removed the a/c system and put a koyo rad with the fiero e fan witch is plenty of cooling. any way thanx for your guys help merry xmas
