    I have an override switch and a indicator light to tell me when the fan is running but the alternator is back feeding the light keeping it dimly lit at all times. Would anyone have a source and part number for a diode that i could use for this gig? Thanks in advance.

    I'm not an electrical guru but the fan freewheeling and illuminating the light is normal and not detrimental to the charging system as far as I know.
    My set up (manual switch and indicator light) has been doing that for years.

      Thanks Baws, yeah I figured it wouldnt do any harm. I remember some guys had put in a diode many moons ago but i cant seem to find that post with the part number they used. I think it was sourced from radio shack so that tells you how long ago it was.

    I used one of these for the same purpose: https://www.amazon.com/FAIRCHILD-SEM...dp/B075SSJQD7/

    $3.35 for a pack of 15. Still have 14 left!
