Cooling fan polaris 500

I just replaced a cooling fan in a 2005 polaris atv 500. When the battery terminals were connected, the cooling fan comes on without the key on. There was a burning smell and a crack. I disconnected and reconnected again and the fan still comes on. It still works even though something was burning. What would cause the fan to come on?

Thermostat switch has been by-passed, when machine gets up to temp, the switch sends power to the fan, when the switch goes bad the machine will overheat due to the fan not kicking on. make sure the switch has not been by-passed and wired direct.

I have a 2001 polaris scrambler 500 4x4 and it wouldn't charge the battery and my lights wouldn't work and the fan wouldn't come on so it overheated and it was the voltage regulator that was broke and that makes the fan and lights work it might not be a stator hopes this helps

I have 97 Polaris Express 400 I haven't ridden in a while. Put new battery in it, new fuel, cranks, runs great but overheats. I checked the radiator reservoir and it is full. Any suggestions? How can I...

U should have two sensors for the cooling system one is nerr the thermostat housing for temp light / gauge ,one on the cooler at the bottem left side should have two wires on it need to pull them off connect the two togather. That should make the fan come on, if not, look for a popped fuse should invest in a handheld inferred thermometer ,there really cheap .get them on eBay for between 11 to 20 bucks brand new use it to test temp on coolant hoses to see temp on top and bottom .if fan does come replace cooling fan temp sensor.

I cant solve your problem, but I have a problem with my "hot" light coming on. I left my lights on for 3 weeks, so my battery was junked. When I replaced the battery my fan kicks on with just the turn of the key, and the hot light flashes even though the engine has'nt been running. Polaris 08

ATV will not start. no power to lights, starter.

make sure that your battery terminals are clean and are making good connection, sometimes when alot of mud builds up on my bikes battery it wont start also try to start it by the recoil is it has one or the kick start cuz when the battery is dead and you stuck in the trails you can start it by this and it should start

if this doesnt work let me no
