Re: overheating issues 2011 rzr 800
ok, fellows, heres what i did, to find out what was going on. took to the hills, friday, pitch the front end up hill, big time, then bleed coolant out bleed screw, then brought it home, still fan did not work right, took my volt meter, attached it to plug in going to fan plug, wired the fan on a toggle switch, straight to battery.. velcroed the volt meter to the dash, where i could watch it, and road the hell out of it saturday, every time, at 204, meter showed power of 14.1 volts, i kicked on fan with toggle switch, every time, meter lost power at 194, i would kick the fan off. this showes me that ecm is telling the fan to cool the engine, stayed 14 hours, volt meter showed power, every time, on at 204 degrees, off at 194 degrees, just like book says. fan worked every time also, no problem with overheating, however, i would not advise anyone, to use this method, except to test for problems, it is very easy to forget, about toggle switch. now, there is only 1 part that i have not checked, and that is the 20 amp circuit breaked, which i will replace, monday, and see what happens, could be when breaker is under a load, fan being the load, that it trips out, stoping power to the fan... the breaker isin a bad place, also, always covered with mud and water.. wil let everyone know, if that is the problem, soon.
