Rad fan switch

Anyone wired a switch to their rad fan? Could be 3 position or 2. I want off and auto like it normally is with the temp sensor. But I would be fine with on off and auto to just don't want it running all the time. Had an incident with it turning on driving through water and it sheared off a fan blade. Would like to never have to replace the fan assembly again. Any help would be great.

I would think a two position switch, that renders it either auto or off (for water crossing) would suite that purpose and be easiest to wire up. All you need it to cut one of the wires that runs the fan and wire up a switch of sufficient amperage rating.

If you use a 3 pole switch you could steal 12V from somewhere and send it to the fan when you want it on.

No point. Just do as grizzly peg said and interrupt the signal. On is letting the bike decide and off is off. I've never had an issue with fans on bikes. And always in water. Different story if you had it full of mud.

That's where I'm not 100% sure I was pretty mudded up underneath. But that fan assembly is pretty enclosed so I'd be surprised if any mud was able to get in there enough to stop the fan. I was driving through water and as soon as I was coming out I heard a grinding noise. It Stopped after a couple seconds and did it one other time. Then I overheated an hour or so later so I checked the fan and it was binding on a piece of the fan blade that broke and was wedged in there. But I definitely don't wanna take the chance again so it will be nice to have it shut off going through any water.
