Electric fan issue

So I got a derale electric fan hooked up with a DC fan controller. Has been working fine the few times I drove the car.
Now the fan is like pulsating when I drive it. It gose off for like 5 seconds then gose full power then shuts off, dose these constantly.

Everything looks wired up fine, any ideas or what i should check?


S-trimmed,custom A2A,tubular kmember, A arms, strange coilovers, 5 lug cobra disk brakes, 4:10s 31 spline mosers. Et 13.6 at 105mph...more to come

confirm power and ground, and solid sensor connection

after that, the maker of the control will need to be contacted.

its solid state non serviceable part

make sure you don't have any cut up wiring/intermittent shorts also.

you mean opens, right?

shorts would lead to fuse blowing

he would need a fuse to blow one..seen cars wired directly to battery with no fuses in circuit, also lots of bad terminal connections.

if there is no fuse, and a short, the temp of the conductor goes to the temperature of the sun in an instant, and melts
