Radiator fan hard wire

Alright my relay keeps going out on my electric fan. I want to just hard wire it to a switch but I'm not sure what gauge wire to get. Any help?

Re: Radiator fan hard wire

Normally when the relay fries every time, the problem is the fan itself, which is drawing too much current. It is a good practice to change both relay and fan at the same time.
However, if you want to hardwire it, just measure the existing fan wire and use the same gauge.
