    A 24V automotive fan can be powered by two 12V batteries connected in series making a total 24V.With a singal battery it will not run properly.

    Good Luck

    If you try to power a fan rated for 24v by a 12v automotive system, it will run very slowly.

    You really need to find one rated for 12v instead. You might have decent luck at a junkyard/the breakers' yard.
