Yup. Actually you need to replace the thermostat and thermoswitch as a pair
for it to work right.

It runs too much - sounds like a hurricane. Finally overheated the relay -
so I removed it and have no high speed (which also isn't fused, BTW -
dangerous). Works fine in all temps/driving conditions except 98+ degrees on
freeway with AC on in max configuration. I plan on fitting an S6 6 bladed
fan to correct this - supposedly flows 100% more air.
