On a 2004 Sportsman 400 there is a sensor on the left side of the engine head, just under the thermostat housing. If that sensor is bad or disconnected the hot lamp will come on which causes the fan to constantly run. Good luck and if you need any more assistance let me know, Daniel.

Overheating


Either a bad fan or a bad heat sensor that triggers the fan to go off.

Why does engine overheating light come on after only a few minutes without fan ever turning on?


There are 2 sensors for temperature. One near T stat housing for ECU reading. Other one in water passage for the light. The ECU turns the fan on by tripping the fan relay. The light comes on to tell you it's too hot. Check fan to make sure it turns. Check fan fuse to make sure it's not blown. Unplug fan motor and hot wire it to make sure it runs. If it does, locate fan relay and swap it with one of the others with the same numbers on it to see if fan comes on when engine heats up. If fan cycles normally the temp light sensor is probably bad.

Getting hot fan not coming on when needed times it does and it stays cool times it don't and it gets hot and have to shut it off wait a little bit I've change the thermo and sens


Sounds like the fan motor is bad. If there is power to it, It should work all the time. Maybe you can oil it to see if this works. God-Bless!

05 Eiger 400 ATV


ok two reasons here. 1st being the oil temp sensor or wiring to it from fan.test sensor when eng light is on . wire to sensor must be disconnected..ohms test. to grnd on atv. open or closed. now retest when eng is cold same test as b4. open or closed? if different reading assume sensor is ok. check wiring same way. can do wires eng cold btw. should find a relay for the fan on atv also thats part 2. be a small prolly black box near battery compartment (dry location) (up high ) trace wire from fan to relay then to sensor . pretty simple there . same as b4 either open or closed when hot and different when cold is ok if different. as always CHECK FUSES FIRST. CONNECTIONS SECOND. 95 % electrical ......dirty / bad connections.

I have a 2006 Suzuki eiger 400 auto, It runs awesome for about half hour then shuts off assuming because it is running hot? Any thoughts? Fan has not kicked on.


Yup.It's getting hot.Check the fan relay is operable.Fans gotta run.Most likely a bad heat sensor tho.That's a water temperature sending unit that tells the relay when to turn the fan on.Ifya gonna own these toys,learn the basics on how to care for them.There is ALWAYS going to be something going wrong.Get a manual.
