here is the circuit diagram,

had to rethink my plan, relays need to intersect the wires to resistor pack, marked in red, to retain 4 speeds, therefore 4 relays in cabin, adjacent to resistor block.

Should be out of the way, if packaged well, needs 12V in cabin, probably run a fused wire thru the firewall.

all ideas welcome, especially before fitting

dont want to introduce new Automotive Electrical 101 mistakes

i must be missing somthing.
i would be using 1 relay to supply power to the blower switch.
Bypasses the ignition switch to supply the blower switch @C236.
if it shits itself so what its not a show stopper, put a smaller fuse in if yr that worried.
usually, the resistor packs shit themselves not so much the blower switch.
good luck with it.

I think your idea has great merit, and might just do that, as the ignition switch IS the name of the game, I can always swap a blower switch out

I had a close look at a couple of resistor packs, I am suspicious that people find them dead, but they are still ok.

there is a $3 thermo fuse in them, and wire coils for resistance

2" suspension lift, shocks, adjustable trackbar etc swapped over from my smashed black one to my new white one, you get to do the job twice when its a swap..fkn yay

new swaybar links & bushes

we drove them both up to my rural block and the black one is now up there for good, unreg, still goes well

while I was doing my swaybars, I noticed that there was no fluid of any sort leaking on the underside, after my extensive leak repair & cleaning

I was also thinking a swaybar disconnect would be a complete waste of money for me, as I very rarely venture where it would be required, and I found that if you carry tools, impact wrench & blanket, (all of which I do when off-roading), you can drop or install the entire thing in 5minutes, without raising the vehicle or removing any other item

You could use relays for the blower fan if you wish, you'll need a way to vary the power to the fan motor but this can be achieved quite easily and cheaply with some simple dc-dc buck converters, one for each speed except high....

swapped out the Power steering fluid with Penrite Premium Power Steering fluid, had it around for a while, but this XJ has a whining PS pump.

Not sure how much is in the system??, but I syringed out 300ml at a time from the resevoir, did that till used the 1litre bottle.

If there is say 600ml total in the pump & resevoir, than it now be ~90% pure

Whine has greatly diminuished, only at full lock now.

probably hasnt been changed since it left factory

also changed out front & rear diff oil, used LS90 on both.

fixed a exhaust leak from where it is welded with "metal mend" 2 part stuff, I have repaired exhaust leaks before, so long as thorough cleaning is undertaken

Good job on the power steering pump. I might try a bit of that Penrite myself.
I have a small whine in my pump. Thought it was normal and gives the Jeep a bit of character. They all whine about something..

the Penrite stuff meets OEM specs

a lot of guys reckon ATF will quiet them

but ATF is designed to cope with 2-300psi

1000psi+ in power steer system

apparently full lock whine is normal due to valving

it seems to be pretty well quiet apart from that, whined like a bitch b4

there is a slight squeek, which I think is an idler pulley, have a new spare, as well as a belt

I wasnt sure if the PS whine was masking a trans whine in 1st and 2nd, now I will be able to listen up for that
