Question about 2005 kawasaki EN 500 Vulcan

2 Answers

The cooling fan on my Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 does not come on

The red warning light came on indicating over heating. I have checked the fuse which is fine. Could it be a sensor problem? How do I check that one? What else could be the problem?

Thanking in advance for your help.

You can check the engine temp sensor with an ohmmeter. Place red positive probe directly on bottom middle of sensor, and the black negative probe on side of sensor. If you get a reading, it is good, if not, it is bad.
You can check the fan by hooking the wires up directly to a 12 volt battery. If it turns it is good, if not than the fan motor is shot.

2002 Kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic headlight does not work


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, intermittent, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chafed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/low beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

Hi, Anonymous the answer to this question is way above my pay grade for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.
