From what I have found out on my 92 Plymouth acclaim is that the manufacturer wired the radiator fan through the air conditioner.This way, if your AC breaks and you decide that you can live without it, your radiator fan will also stop working. This means that your car will run hot or overheat in traffic, leading to lots of other problems that are of a much more expensive calibur. I simply rewired the fan myself, through the firewall and into a fuse that shuts off when I turn off the car.

The RED wire is the power wire which goes directly to the solenoid that sits on the side of the starter motor, which is way down underneath the engine.
