Oops.. Well I feel stupid now.

I don't know why i didn't think of this before (and the SPAL tech support guy on the phone didn't think of it either) but, the remote status LED on the dash is NOT the same as the status LED on the controller unit itself (which is under the hood).

So, when the status LED on the dash is blinking, that just means there is SOME error. If you pop the hood and look at the LED on the FAN-PWM unit itself, that is where it would flash the code telling you what the error is.

I haven't tried this yet (I don't have any surefire way to trigger an error code) but hopefully I will catch the error happening some time in the near future so I can look under the hood and see what the error was!

I might just be able to fix the problem and not add the failsafe stuff <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Fine with me if that's the case... then I can use the temperature switch and relays and stuff to do an electric fan install on my pickup truck <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/notooth.gif" alt="" /> That would be a fun project!
