Can I activate dollar-store shutters via the fan relay?

I made this grill block and air dam: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...dam-30382.html

read this thread: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...ore-29966.html

and bought these shutters: Vent-Miser 91668 Programmable Energy Saving Vent, 12-by-6-Inches, White - Heating Vents - Amazon.com

and now it is warm enough that my car starts to overheat when I drive uphill. So, I read these threads (and others):

and I still do not know where to go. It sounds like the fan indicator light receives more power than an LED needs, but would it be enough to activate the shutters? How would I get them closed afterwards? Can I bypass the wireless setup and run a wire from the fuse box to the shutters?

Thank you very much for any help that you may provide! Please enjoy your day!
