I noticed the last two times i went riding my fan never came on. I keep checking to see if its on but nothing, I have not overheated or burnt any oil. The rides are decent lenghts in lots of mud with normal summer temps. How often does your fan come on? is there a common problem with the fan not working?

I think my fan comes on too much! I was riding last weekend temps. around 80 degrees and trail riding at 25 mph.Every time I came to a stop the fan was running.There were times I was going slow in 2nd. gear and the fan was running,which makes sense,but at a steady 25 mph I'd think there would be enough airflow to keep things cool. I've never seen the HOT light on so I'm not worried.My friends Rubicon never gets hot enough for the fan to run,He says he's never seen it run at all.

Mine runs alot when I'm riding slow speeds, 3 gear kinda slow. When it's hot (outside) it runs alot too. I don't worry about it, the light never comes on. I will worry about it when that happeneds. I did notice that now that I make sure I clean out both oil coolers it don't run as much and takes longer for it to come on, maybe you should check and see if one of your coolers are packed with mud/dirt.

Mine lately has been coming on alot less. I blame it on the lack of mud around here! I ride into creeks and that stops the fan everytime! If your coolers are caked with mud I would imagine it would stay on the entire time you rode. I wash mine everytime I get it muddy, and the coolers are the main area of concern when I wash. I just spray them to get it all wet and then wash the outer parts, then return to the coolers, then away then again. I end up washing them about 5-10 times. After you get the big stuff off I found some degreaser helps alot, it'll loosen up the "film" that water just doesn't get.

fan

your fan and brake lights work on the same circuit ,check your fuses ,I had a 3rd tail light and back up light on that circuit and could'nt keep fuses from blowing.I also had alot of mud build up on my skid pan where my fan switch is.
