    I want to install a fan clutch switch in my 5700. To my understanding I need to wire it to the fan clutch solenoid to manually engage it. Can anyone please share a wiring diagram?

    no one will have wiring diagram of you truck. each truck's wiring diagram is different and you can get it from dealer. they must run your trucks vin. I want to help you. I have never opened the door of 5700 and I don't know it has Sam modules or not. What year is your truck? That truck has SAM Cab module? If it has Sam Cab then I can tell you what to do to switch on or off the fan.

    It’s 2017 5700XE, how can I check if I have SAM module? I have a laptop with DDDL and NexIQ interface. My only plausible plan is to wire a switch in the AC high pressure sensor, when circuit is open fan clutch is engaged. However I would like a more elegant and permanent solution without having to modify sensor wire harness.

    2017 . has different module.
    your plan is a good one. it works on pre 2017 models . Try it.
    Just for info- CPC has not connected cavity and if you put toggle switch between ground and that cavity fan will come on after 5-8 second delay. Open DDDL and go to A&I DDEC manual, in help/troubleshootings. Search in A&I DDEC manual for fan activation. You will see which one is that cavity for your truck. CPC is located under dash . I Don't know exactly where in your truck. Just ask dealer where it is located.
