Question about 1996 Triumph Triumph Thunderbird

1 Answer

I just bought a used 1996 Triumph Thunderbird. I ran it a while and when I shut it off the hot light came on and it will not start. The green neutral light will not come back on until it cools off and it will not even turn over. The fan on the radiator has never came on. What might be the problem here? I don't want to run it hot and tear it up. I assume that going down the road, there was enough air forced through the radiator to keep it cool enough to run.

Initially try to turn the engine slowly by hand (for valve adjustment, etc..) place the transmission in neutral and remove the spark-plugs (so you don't fight the compression of the cylinders). A 1 1/8" socket or wrench can be used on the crank-bolt or you can just pull the accessory belt. Avoid pulling on the plastic fan blades, they break.
Also carefully check to see if it has spark and also check your fuses under the hood
