I just left the GMPP fan wire unused. No issues. ECM only cares about coolant temperature.

Looking at the DCC controller and reading the instructions, it appears to me the fan will continue to run after the car is shut off. First, am I correct? Secondly, is there a right way to get around it?

In advance, thanks for your consideration.

It only runs for a few seconds until the coolant in the radiator falls below the set temperature. Not a big deal in my experience.

I saw the 3 different sized DCC controllers. Which one would be needed with an Entrophy dual fan radiator? There's an FK45, 75 and 95.
Thanks

I just use the 95 since Iím guessing the extra margin canít hurt.
