Let me explain what I have going on right now.
2001 Altima dual fans wired up to the a.c. plug so I must have my a.c. on in order for the fans to work.
The first fan gets plugged directly into the oem plug, I managed to do this by stripping the plug from o.e.m. fan and wiring it into the dual fan closest to the plug (next to battery)
As for the second fan plug, i stripped the plug and running the wires into the primary fan so they both get powered from the a.c. plug.
Not sure if they are both high or low, but I was trying to follow the set-up from nicoclub and am somewhat confused at the wiring.
Iv'e looked at multiple sources online from general dual fan set-ups to ka-t.org,
I have used the search button, I know I can use a fan controller, but am determined to get the same result as this guy did
Wiring Altima electric fans into an S14 - NICO Club (http://www.nicoclub.com/archives/wiring-altima-electric-fans-into-an-s14.html)
This seems like a good view of what will be accomplished to my understanding.
I just dont know what colored wires to tap into for the high and low speed lead.

I plan to run with two 30a relays just like above minus that inline fuse.
Thanks for reading and for help.

You'll definitely want an inline fuse from the battery to the [30] ports on the relays. 25A fuse should be sufficient.

Well i may have finally given in.
I decided to look into fan controllers, and I found Dakota Digital Programmable Dual Electric Fan Controller with LED Readout
the only wires I don't understand at this point are the last three dispite doing a few searches.
It appears the a.c. label is connected to the a.c. clutch line if that even exsists or correct name
Ignition and sender wire which i dont understand either. this is going into ka24de 97 240sx
any help appreciated

Thank-you for pointing that one out to me.
I have seen that one and read the install online, very easy to do too. ( thats always a good thing)
Not that i am trying to be difficult but the digital readout appeals alot to me, seeing how I can have it mounted inside and read the temp.
Any way I can get something besides the o.e.m temp gauge in the cluster, not sure where it reads the heat from.
How are you currently running your set up or was running?
