The attached schematic diagram shows the wiring.
The controllers I have used measure the temperature of the coolant. It appears that the Maradyne unit has a sensor that measures the air temperature.
I don't think that would work as good.

Not savvy on that exact unit, typically the fan voltage will be switched through a relay. The relay is activated via the water temp at the head or intake manifold. The unit may contain the relay as one device with remote sensor located in a well. Make sure to fuse the elec fan motor as close as possible to the 12 vdc source, use 10-12 gage wire for all the power side wiring typically at 25-30 amps fused but check for correct amp rating.

If this thing is switching based on air temp get rid of it.
