Default Push in fan switch p/n for 2 speed control?

Hey all. I'm trying to do an e swap in my '93 240 and I've got an (unused) push in switch in my radiator that appears to be bad. I'm thinking the radiator was swapped somewhere down the line, because nothing is hooked up to the switch. Any way, does anyone have a p/n for a two speed fan switch that will go right in there? Thanks

I hate digging up old threads, but this is the exact issue I ran into with no luck finding a switch myself. Were you (or anyone else) able to find a p/n?

I personally wouldn’t use that switch that comes in the radiator. I think on mechanical fan cars it’s an overheat switch for the pusher fan. But on regina cars it’s the main cooling fan switch. On around 215F, which I find a bit toasty. That’s probably why you thought it was 'bad’, because it doesn’t come on until it’s already almost overheating.

agreed. I pulled a nissens from a N/A 940 and it just has a plug. I assume its because they are controlled by the ecu

I have mine running off a Saab T in the lower rad hose, the switch is 87C which comes on right at 199F and shuts off at 180ish. I only use the high speed fan function as well. The bottom hose gets hot sooner than the top hose and will help protect the engine is you're low on coolant for some reason. I have a spare if anyone wants it pm me.

Only on lh2.4 cars. Regina cars have no fan control other than external temp switch and pressure switch in the condenser.
