    12v Countdown timer, runs a fan for up to 72 hours, resets when Acc supplied.

    Hello Circuit Experts!
    I am trying to run a small 50mm 12v fan while my car is running, and continues to run from the car battery for up to 72 hours max after I switch off the car. The timer would reset when I start the car again and not start counting down until the car is switched off.
    I think this could do it, but I'd like to delay turning off, not turning on?

    But if it doesn't I'd be capable of soldering it myself, if given a circuit diagram.

    Thankyou very much!
    Mace

    The problem is this forum under the terms of service rules prohibits discussion that involves any automotive modifications. There are other forums which will allow these discussions. :(

    I am sure this technically counts as an automotive modification as it's being done in the frame of a car, but for simple electronics, I am using the 12v car battery as a power source and the Acc voltage as a switch.
