evildiesel Yes sir that is 100% the fan clutch wires. Replace with a new fan clutch.

Jakedrums Obviously, that's what it was. Took me awhile to find the broken connection, and I have plenty of cable left to splice with. Does anyone have a good picture of how it's routed to the fan? Where the bracket attaches? Thanks for the help.

Jakedrums 24hrsparkey, is it possible to splice this? Or do I need a new clutch?

No need to struggle .

Those wires ( against ALL COMMON SENSE ) travel up to the fan side of the rad , and connect to the center of the fan clutch. The wires control fan lock up vs operating conditions vs Ac .

Even properly installed the tube with the wires is only like 1/2 - 1" away from the fan and the tremendous airflow it creates .

tryNto Yeah, that is the crappy. Fan Clutch wiring.

MDSWA That does look like a fan clutch harness. They can get sucked into the fan where the wires are cut. Happened to my friends truck and unfortunately took out his radiator too. I just replaced my fan clutch with an after market part (Hayden 3282) and it's keeping my AC and transmission much cooler now. Here's the thread from my project.

24hrsparkey Looks like the wires that at one time went to the electronic controlled fan clutch .

Need help -broken connection

2006 5.9L 24v-had many challenges recently. I finished water pump replacement and flush on Monday and noticed this broken connection hanging. Cable with (I believe four wires) encased in a piece of sheet metal connects to a plug by the front of the oil pan. Any ideas? Thanks for any help! tim
