You should talk to Jabin (gmachinz) about what to do with the Ford fan. He can suggest a much better way of wiring it than with a conventional wiring harness.

I just run my taurus 2 speed on a higher amp on/off/on toggel switch. I used 10 ga. wire and soldered the joints.
Fan's ground wire to battery neg.
wire from battery + to center post of toggel
fan's high speed wire to top post on toggel
fan's low speed wire to bottom post on toggel
Had it that away for about 2 years with no probs.

While there are a few ways to "make it work", you really need to at least use a relay to carry the load-those Taurus fans can draw a lot power although with a toggle inside the car you can run into a lot of voltage drop which negates that somewhat-meaning a slower than normal fan speed. Running your power off a toggle is not a good idea even if it does "work". -Jabin
