UForce 800 fuse location
« on: June 25, 2017, 06:00:44 AM »
First I would like to say that this is a great site with a ton on info . I purchased my new machine about a month ago and so far works perfect . The other day I was out and could smell then noticed smoke . To my surprise I had over heated , the over flow bucket was dumping anti-feeze. Being new to the bike I wasn't really sure what to look for , all I could tell at that point was my fan was not cutting in . I was able to limp out of the trail to get it home where I could get a good look at it . Now I'm not sure if all the manual books are the same but if they are they suck  LOL, I was trying to find a fuse box of some sort but all it showed was a relay location in the book. Thank good for THIS SITE I was able to download the wiring diagram which showed fuses so at least I knew it had them . Well I did find it , for anyone wondering its just beside the relays , a SMALL black box not marked  . The labels on the inside make no sense with what the fuses protect. I found a blown fuse that ran my fan motor . Not sure what took it out though . I was doing a lot of slow driving which maybe ran the fan hot .?
Anyway just thought I would share what happened just in case anyone had that happen to them or they were wondering where the fuse location was .
Again I just want to thank all the people who post info here . Great site and great bunch !!

Welcome. Usually it's not the fuse but the fan switch but for some reason the fan system pulled more mps then the fuse would allow so it took the fuse out. The three top reasons this may happen is:
1. There is a problem with the fan motor or something restricting it's rotation.
2. There is a short in the system or somewhere power is going to ground.
3. There is a "cold-connection" or bad connection somewhere. This is a loose connector arching internally. It can even be the fuse sward connectors or loose ground.

Yeh it is a little odd that it took out a 15amp fuse . I have been running the bike all day and so far so good . I guess for now it'll be something to keep an eye on . I would call the dealer Monday and ask them about it but I think theres a lot more info on this site !

Just whatever it takes-don't let it overheat...again. These can't take much of that.
