Cooling fan - is it an amps thing
Puzzled - 1986 Honda Goldwing Apencade. Fan won't kick on...
When I let her sit and idle (950 rpms),,, I've reinstalled dash cluster just so I can watch the temp reading,,, it takes a while but she will heat up amd go to 4-5 bars...
At that point, with a volt meter connected to the female end of the fan plug, the voltage will go from a wandering zero to about 14.5 volts.
When I hard wire the fan to the battery fan will kick right on and run strong, bars will drop and temp will come down fast. At 3-4 bars the volt meter will return to zero. I've done this test more than once. Let it get hot a again, no fan, and the volts will kick in as tested with meter. The switch seems to work.
When I plug in the fan like normal and goose the volt meter into the back of the plug, I will also get a reading of 14.5v when the switch kicks in at 4-5 bars. NO FAN... Is my problem an amps problem?
What say you?
Much appreciation for guidance and suggestions - in advance...
ps... since last posting I've removed carbs and did away with all the SAS stuff. Installed new jets and rings. Put it back together and fired right up. A smooth 900-950 rpms is the norm. Purrrrz. Timing seems right.
Brakes redone with all new seals including masters.... Coolant system cleaned, flushed and washed out. Went the DexCool way. Still no thermostat,,, for now.
