Wiring a booster fan to furnace

Hi everyone,

I've bought an inline fan, and added it to the ducting which supplies my attic. I wired the fan to the blower motor connections (neutral to neutral bar, and hot spliced into 'circ' wire). The fan engages when the furnace kicks in, but doesn't shut off when the furnace fan shuts off.

Furnace is a Coleman TM9Y060B12MP11A.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

Its possible but not the recommended way to do it. Probably would damage the board
Correct way is to have a external power source, controlled via current or pressure sensor, or a relay activated by the furnace board.
The CIRC-H terminal you have there is just constant power
