And, most auto switches were priced similarly so no cost savings.

I noticed that my '07 990 with 32,xxx miles had a similar switch but with wire vs blade connections that has never failed. So it stayed with the OEM switch as being the most simple / cheapest solution & the failure an anomaly. Also, most car fans have larger motors pulling more current hence the relay.

If it fails again soon, it will be revisited.
Must admit I know nothing of the fan switch. When installed does it allow you to override auto operation of the fan? How does it work and why would I want one on my EXC? Does the fan stay in auto mode if the switch is off?
