Question about 2010 kawasaki Super Sherpa

Blowing 20a fuse

I've just taken my sherpa out of storage. I've charged the battery to 12 v. When I hook up the battery and put on the red lead the fuse in the red line blows right away, I can't get the battery hooked up without it blowing. There's no key in and the run button is off and the fuse still blows. What's up with this, never had trouble before. The Sherpa only has 127km show room condition.

Broken or shorted line or relay

Testimonial: "Thanks, the wiring is all in perfect condition, nothing touching the frame etc. must be the relay box that the fuse is into. I assume thats what its called attached to the red positive cable."

SOURCE: MAIN FUSE KEEPS BLOWING

there has to be something simple. check for broke/melted wires, wiggle test wires to make it blow fuse. how long does it take to blow fuse. does the fan go on.do you have to ride it to get it to blow?

you have a short somewhere. check all the wiring tosee if any of them have bare spots(exposed wire) or if one the battery cables is toutching the frame.

Yes it has a main fuse, look for the starter solenoid, follow your positive battery wire from the Battery, it will hook to this solenoid or relay, this is where the main fuse is, it should have a red cover.

Ok, disconnect your starter and try again. Starter pulls the most Amps, out of your battery during start, and that's why the cables going to it, are practically driven from the battery directly to it with the help of a small relay. You could have a problem with your starter, if the fuse you burn is the big 30A. If smaller Amp fuse is getting "killed", all you got to do is check your fuse box guide and see which sub circuit is the one "in pain".

Repairable smart charger?


There maybe a fuse inside the unit, most reverse polarity is protected by a diode though. It is a sacrificial diode that blows out when hooked up wrong. If you have an external fuse and that keeps blowing, chaces are the diode is bad.

I don't have a manual for my small Black & Decker Smart Charger. I'm trying to charge the battery on my '07 Honda Rebel 250cc. It has settings for 2/6/12 volt batteries. How do I hook it...


Hi,

You just need to set black & decker charger to 12V . Don't make mistake while connecting + / - leads. + lead usually come with Red color cable. You can use the AVO tester to justify the lead cable. The charging time is normally about 10 -12 hours (or just just check the status on your charger display). If your charger does not has trickle charge facility, you have to disconnect your charger after 12 hours continuous use.

Also, you can find the guidance about your charger here :

I have a 2000 fatboy the accessory fuse blos instantly when i turn on the switch . this acurd after traveling the bike just shut down on me . at that point i checked the bat. and it was smoking hot


The fuse should have blown quickly enough to prevent the battery from overheating. The accessory fuse powers quite a few things. Mostly it powers things like turn signals, speedometer, running lights and maybe a few other things. You need a schematic to tell what it powers. Do NOT put a higher rated fuse in the circuit or you'll start burning wires instead of blowing fuses. Evidently you've got a short somewhere or an overvoltage problem. To check for the latter case, you need a DVOM and a fully charged battery in your bike. Put the meter's function selector switch in the DC VOLTS, 25 volt or greater range. Connect the red meter lead to the positive post of the battery and the black meter lead to the negative post of the battery. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Within a minute or so you should read between 14.5 and 15.0 volts on your meter. If you read greater than 15 volts, I'd replace the regulator as it's probably overcharging your battery. If the fuse continues to blow, you'll have to trace the wires and look for a short circuit somewhere.

Good Luck
Steve

I'm a novice at using a multi-meter but want to check my volkswagon beatle for a short, one circuit at a time. After battery is charged up, it goes dead after a few weeks. Worse in colder temperatures....


you would be measuring current
you would set the meter to maximum current setting
Then place the leads between the terminals of the fuse for each circuit. with the fuse removed.
so if you have a ten amp fuse you would expect a current either below 10Amp or at 10 amp.
maximum setting of current is in case short circuit to ground causes a huge current drain. To prevent blowing up amp meter of multimeter.
You may wish to put a fuse on the lead of the multimeter to safe guard your meter from blowing up in case you encounter a high current it can't handle.
if via the battery disconnect one lead and put a fused meter lead on the battery and the other lead on the battery cable. look for current drain while car switched off.

This unit comes with a Four Conductor Cable to hook up power in. How are these four conductors hooked to power?


Disconnect the battery. Connect the green wire to the Negative terminal.Put a 20a fuse inline on the black wire and connect to Negative terminal.Put a 20a fuse inline on the red wire and connect to Positive terminal.
Put a 1a fuse on the yellow wire and connect to ignition switch - if you don't want to use the Ignition Sense feature, connect the yellow wire to Positive terminal.Re-connect the battery and test.

Cagiva solenoid


1. Battery Voltage. - Key off: between 12 - 13VDC.
2. Key off Amp Draw - At the main fuse: < (less than) 1ADC

3. Key on Amp Draw - At the main fuse: Results will vary because of different loads.
*Note - DO NOT START THE BIKE WITH YOUR METER IN PLACE OF THE MAIN FUSE! Also, if you can not access the main fuse, put your positive meter lead on the red wire at the solenoid, and put your negative meter lead on the positive battery lead. This way you will be able to get your amperage readings AND let you start the bike without blowing your fuse.* Charging amperage should be at least 1 ADC

4. Break even speed - The RPM in which the charging voltage at the battery turns positive - Should be before Idle

5. Charging voltage at the battery - Between 13 - 15 VDC.

hope the above details help.thanks for using fixya.

Charging system short


1.The electrical schematics are in section 12 of the Haynes repair manual for cherokees 1984 through 2001 .
2. With all accessories turned off disconnect -ve battery terminal from the battery (wear your safety glasses at all times in the vicinity of the battery ) .
3. Solder 2 leads to a 12V light bulb and connect the leads as follows : 1 to the -ve battery terminal , the other to the loose -ve cable you disconnected in step 2.
4. If the bulbs glows , start removing , then replacing your fuses one at a time while noting which fuse made the bulb glow dimmer . The corresponding accessory is draining your battery .

Accidentaly switched 12v and ground on amp


NOTHING INTERNAL BUT YOU SHOULD PUT A 30 AMP FUSE BACK IN AS SOON AS YOU CAN TO KEEP THE 20 AMP FROM POPPING THATS THE WHOLE REASON FOR THE FUSE TO KEEP THE ELECTRONICS FROM BLOWING
