Greetings, I picked up my Kodiak 700 in October and have just started to enjoy it. Currently it has less than 50 miles on the clock. While riding in 75 degree weather at slow speed the temp light came on. Had to shut the machine off several times and let it cool back down. The cooling fan wasn't operating so we cut the day short and trailered it home. I spent the next day trying to troubleshoot the system. The fan works when jumpered to the battery. The coolant temp sensor is not your standard switch. It works like a thermister and sends a signal to the ECU which appears to ground the fan relay. Unfortunately without a schematic or manual I couldn't track down the fan relay to check for power there. So off to the dealer it goes. I believe it still is barely under warranty but I don't think they understand it doesn't have the normal "coolant switch" like on an older machine. I'll let you know what we come up with. In the meantime I ordered an OEM service manual. (should have done that months ago) :frown2:

Took it to the dealer. They found one of the pins at the cooling fan connector had bent over not allowing contact. It took the mechanic most of the day to track it down. The service writer said they would only charge me 1.5 hours labor $108. Then I reminded him about the warranty...... Oh, is all he said. Works good now and no charge. Thank you Jesus.

Funny how they forget about the warranty like that when it should be obvious, new vehicle. Unless there are some good reasons for not taking a job as warranty.
