AC Compressor and Auxiliary Fans

Is there an easy way to get my auxiliary fans to come on automatically every time the A/C compressor gets engaged?

The car is a '95 E300D OM606 Engine 124 Body


'95 E300 Diesel, 264,000 Miles. [Sold it]

Why would you want that? If you're moving on the highway, the electrical fan will only consume unneeded energy and incur unneeded wear.

If your pressure and temperature senders are working properly, the fan will come on when needed. If you think you don't have enough airflow, check the air path through the condenser and radiator, and your mechanical fan clutch.

Check also the fan low speed resistor behind the left headlight.

A member manufactures a "Plug and Play" resistor set up that Helps your fans come on at a slightly lower temperature.
