    So in my crx I am running a civic Radiator and not my stock crx radiator. I notice that my ect switch(engine coolant temperature) has nothing pluged into it. I know it controls the fan on the radiator. and I also know that the stock crx radiator has the ect switch in it. I need help figuring out what plug from my stock harness do I need to use to extend the wires to the ect switch on the back of the b16 block

    yeah just extend those 2 wires off the back ur block onto that brown connector, and woosh u have a coolent temp. its pretty easy and i dont htink it matters what order the wires go on. since ones a ground n the others the signal. or well at least i havent had a problem with that ne ways. but yes the gentlemen above was right its a black rubber thing thats probally all cracked n broken that holds the wires for the coolent temp.

    do you happen to know the colors of the wires, cause when I took the picture I looked and didnt see that black rubber piece anymore, I remember it on my d16 when I pulled the wiring harness,

    found the problem, the 2 wires were splice together to have the fan on constant, and the fan was plugged into the a/c fan plug. so I plugged the fan into the right plug and I am going to get a connector and extend the wires.
    and yes the wire was yellow, thanks
