DDEC Fan Control Logic Description
Digital Fan Operation
Items used in digital fan operation include:
1. The ECM provides ground (output Fan Control 1) and should be wired such that when this
cavity grounds, the fan should turn off. When the circuit goes open, the fan should turn on.
2. When Aux. Fan Control is configured (input), this wire must be connected to battery
ground, or the fan will always be on. Typically, this is used with an air conditioning
pressure switch. High pressure opens this circuit, and turns the fan on for a minimum time
that can be set with the programming station on later ECM software versions.
3. Fan Override - Grounding this wire will turn the fan on. This would normally be an
OEM supplied switch on the dash.
Other than these items, the ECMs fan control output opens, turning the fan on due to engine
temperatures that are above the programmed limits. Once a fan output turns the fan on for
whatever reason, all fan off temperatures must be met before the fan will turn off.
Temperatures for most highway applications are listed in Table 10-7.
