Question about kawasaki KLX 650 R Motorcycles
Let's figure this out. Broken or otherwise disconnected wires usually cause an open circuit preventing adequate current to a componant. Two wire switches act as light switches do. they either close or open a circuit.In this case, the warning lamp or fan relay is ativated when the temp rises. Cold, the circuit is open/ broken preventing any controlled componant from activating.
First check for any power/voltageat the disconnected wire and the connected wire. Which ever wire that is powered is the supply wire. The one without is your controlled componant wire. Touch the two wires together, bypassing the switch. The fan should come on and turn off when disconnected again. Ignition switch needs to be on.Because of the load the fan pulls, a relay is between the fan and switch.
The switch closes powering the relay, then relay close contacts closing a secondary circuit which in turn permits power to the fan. The fan circuit is powered by the battery and controlled only by the relay.
Yuup, two circuits. Switching and fan drive circuits. Yes, Hook the wire back onto the switch after testing as outlined here. Good Luck and remember to always verify power (fusec ondition). _Ned_
