PostSubject: Fan w/ Temp Gauge   Fri Apr 10, 2009 4:16 pm

I installed my temp gauge and it moves however I don't know if its accurate.

I turn on the atv for about 15 minutes just to sit then rode it for maybe 5 to 10 minutes up and down the road trying to get it hott. It maybe got to 150 and the fan kicked on for about 1 minute then off.

According to the Service Manual it's suppose to kick on at like 190 and off at 180 and the hot light comes on at 220.

I put the sensor in the top hose of the radiator as close to the block as I could (maybe 4 or 5 inches down line the tube from the block. Would that cause a 30 degree difference or does the fan just have a standard cycle time?

I have checked all connections, ground... 12+... signal etc...

Any tips would be appreciated.

**Side note I just drained the radiator and refilled it and used water wetter in the mix. 50/50 + 4 caps per quart

make sure you have the sensor\thermocouple horizontal or it will get a air pocket in it!!

Well it's not thermal couple, it stated that it just needed an 18-20 gauge wire from the coupler up to the sensor post on the gauge. However it isn't currently horizontal I will try the when I get home.

However all the problems are worked out and stuff so I should be good to go.

Slow slow leak... so I came back today and turned the sensor so there wouldn't be a pocket and noticed a small amount of radiator fluid around the clamps. Opened up the top and it had gone down maybe 3 or 4 coke cap fulls of radiator fluid. You guys know of any sealant I can put around the tube to just seal it a little better? I have the metal clamps (flat head ones) and they are turned good just seems somethings not sitting right.

Any ideas.

well got the leak fixed and everything. However I turned the ride on for about 15 minutes the other day and them temp didn't get over maybe 125 130 (on the temp gauge) the fan cycle on for maybe a minute then off and did it again, I rode it maybe a block or two and no go.

You think it got hotter than 130 mostly idlin for 15 minutes or do I have another issue somewhere on my hands? I've checked ALL the wiring, unless i'm missing something...

I don't know how to double check it. I dont think it is, but it is moving... so it could be the sensor... OR the gauge...

It will get hotter sitting idle than moving due to the air moving across the radiator, so I would check it out on a longer ride (at least half hour) to be sure it is at full operating temp and see what it does then.

Without testing it my guess is your gauge is off. Your machine didnt over heat until the end of the day after we played in ALOT of mud. Like Smiley said with it sitting at idle it will heat up faster then driving down the trail. I have a tester if you need help just let me know and you can bring it over to my place. Ive got a couple tools, we will get it fixed-up Thumb

awesome Repo, i went and picked up another unit (same model and everything) and i'm going to check the gauge itself but boiling water or something. Swap out the guages and the sensors and see which end is bad if any is.

If this goes bad i'll hit you up.

AHAHAHAHHA...

So i bought the other one and tested it still no luck...

SO i read the manual (wasn't the first time) like 3 times to make sure i didn't miss anything. Ground, +, Sender etc and I noticed a "note" that says "Sender must be ground to vehicle chassis" and I was like ok so I take the ground and attach it to the frame... no biggy..

Did all that well in trouble shooting i'd take a wire and jump it from the ground to the sender and it'd shoot the gauge to 290 (max) so i always just ignored it... WELL turns out the SENDER "pole" doesn't need to be grounded its "frame" needs to be. So i ran a demo wire from the "Frame" of the sender to my chassis ground and the stupid thing works like a charm...

Dead Horse

I never thought of it naturally grounding to the frame when you would drill into the header since i'm inserting it into the top hose i didn't think twice about it.

Well there you go.
