2011 Fan Issue (Circuit Breaker Location Problem)

Searched the forum high and low recently to try to resolve an overheating issue. My main problem being the fan not running at all.

Began by removing air from system by raising front end, removing rad and overflow caps, running to temp and bleeding the system. Proceeded to check fan by running direct to battery and everything worked ok. Then swapped relays and again a no go. Then decided to look at the wire diagram for a fuse, and found that a circuit breaker is in-between the battery and fuse block. Normally they are found under dash, but after further breakdown and searching, mine was about 18" from battery laying between the skid plate and underbody. Of course a perfect area for mud and the last place to dry out, it was completed rusted/corroded.

Below are pictures of one similar and the way I found mine. Rest assured its not going back to where it was on my machine. Now I now a lot of people stay clear of mud/water, but this is still no place for something that can go bad so fast and easily. My machine was built 08/10 and is currently at 27 hrs. Hopefully this may save others, my advice would be to just take a peak under the dash and see if yours is located in a dryer location that mine was.

You should take a photo of were it's located at for others to see...and also how you re mount the new one.

Thanks for the post. The fan on my 2011 quit as well. I wired in a switch to get through the weekend, but I need to get that fixed.

Here is a picture of the offender. This is a pic of the bottom of the rzr, looking up from the ground. You will notice the underside of the battery box in the background.

My local dealer had a waterproof circuit breaker with a Polaris part # that I used. It was about 35$.

Re: 2011 Fan Issue (Circuit Breaker Location Problem)

You guys rock. Had my 2011 RZR back to the dealer TWICE to get this intermittent fan issue fixed. They couldn't figure it out.
Reading the forums and came across this - and yep, mine was completely rusted through.
Thanks for sharing the information! - This forum pays for itself a few times a month!
I am running new wiring and moving mine up behind the seat.
Sitting on the skid plate.... What were they thinking!?

Re: 2011 Fan Issue (Circuit Breaker Location Problem)

without reloaction this could you just put electric tape around the whole breaker to keep it from rusting cause mine look ok but i just want to do something to it before my rust out

Re: 2011 Fan Issue (Circuit Breaker Location Problem)

Looking at the age and the amount of rust I would say someone made a huge mistake with the choice of relay AND the location.

Unreal kind of quality touch I see on the china crap ATV's

Re: 2011 Fan Issue (Circuit Breaker Location Problem)

Here's where I moved mine - should slow the rusting and it'll be much easier to swap out when it does.

Re: 2011 Fan Issue (Circuit Breaker Location Problem)

Wow...That sucks! When I was washing mine yesterday, I was surprised to see the number of connections under the engine just laying on the skid plate, just waiting to soak up water and crap.

Re: 2011 Fan Issue (Circuit Breaker Location Problem)

So I just pulled my seats out, and sure enough, there's my circuit breaker....rusting away...Def not a water proof part. I'm wondering what to do about this...I've got the extended warranty for 4 years...If I screw with it, and my mod goes bad, engine goes, I'm at fault...If I leave it be, it will fail, while I'm stuck in the middle of some place. ARGH.

How is the circuit breaker attached to the harness? It's wrapped tight into the harness so I can't see w/o tearing it apart.

Re: 2011 Fan Issue (Circuit Breaker Location Problem)

WTF !!!

Now I got to crawl under mine.

You guys are right... that's the crap the Chinese companies would do. OK... I've seen thermal breakers in the wiring harness... but even if it was waterproof... who was the genius that decided to put it UNDER the RZR.

I feel bad for the guys who put new skid plates on. They will have to take them off to get to it.
