i have major wiring problems on my joyner trooper. i cant seem to figure out the problem. it is a 1100 cc. and the enjine starts and runs great. but the cooling fan will not run as well as all the gauges on the machine. it seems to be electricaly dead. the confusing part is that it is the enjine will run.

I'm new to trooper, & not a mechanic.. But my fan quit, it blew fuse, engine still ran, just overheated some. Gauges "could" be same, don't know. Good place to start, ck,& replace fuse, clean all fuses connections,,

Fuses are a good place to start. It's more then likely a fuse but check your relays too along with the connections. After first checking the fuses, with the engine running, trace through the wiring with a voltmeter. Start at the battery 12v+, to the relay and out of the relay to the fan. You should see 12v going to the fan. You won't if the engine is not running except for when the computer gives it a primeing few seconds to clear the lines when you first turn on the ignition. Pin 30 on the relay should have 12v comming to it direct from the battery. Pin 87 on the relay which gets 12v to it when the relay is activated, goes through a fuse and onto the fan motor. Pin 85 and 86 turn the relay on or off. one of those pins should have 12v coming to it from the ignition on circuit and the other one is hooked to pin 69 on the computer. Can't remember which is which. The computer grounds this wire to switch the relay on. The pin numbers are on the under side of the relay. unplug it and you will see them. If you plug the relay nearly all the way back in but leave a little room , you can get voltmeter probes to the pins to check for the 12v to the two places and if the relay activates when you ground either 85 or 86. Be sure you know which one to ground, one of them will be hooked to 12v through a fuse. When activated , pin 30 on the relay should have 12v coming to it and on to the fan motor. If you suspect the relay may be bad, just switch it with the headlight one and see if your problem goes away . Here is the sequense:

12v comes direct from battery through the main cutoff switch behind the seat and onto pin 30 on the relay,

12v also goes through a fuse then onto pin 85 or 86 of the relay,

check for 12v at the 2 pins (30 and 85 or 86) The key should be on for this but the engine doesn't need to be running.

When you have the engine running, there should be 12v at pin 87 which goes from there through a fuse then onto the fan motor.

if your not getting power on pin 87 the relay is either bad or not switching. you can turn the engine off now.

With the ignition on, connect a ground wire to either pin 85 or 86, the opposite one from the one with 12v going to it. The fan should run.

If the fan doesn't run, and the fuse is good and the connections to the fan are solid, the relay is bad.

if it does run then the computer isn't grounding pin 85 or 86. if that is the case then the computer has a problem.

If computer is faulty, don't replace but wire the relay grounding wire (85 or 86) to a switch and manually run fan rather then buying a new computer.

The dash lights also go through a relay and a fuse. Chect that circuit out the same way.

The sequense is the sme except the computer doesn't switch the relay but the ignition switch does.

Hope I'm remembering this correctly. Good luck, it doesn't sound serious.

Welcome to the forum, Lots of good people here,

Please fill out your profile, maybe one of us live just around the corner from you, One problem I have seen is the fuse plug in gets hot and causes the fuse holding terminal to let go, same for relays. You may want to pull the fuse and relay boxes and look at the back sides of them. Also read the parts pieces and info post that is pinned to the first several posts and down load the wiring diagram, lots of info there.

Good luck,

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them. 
      Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.

      Anyone have an outer cv joint ball cage? Mine is cracked up. Other than that it's a good axel.
      Please let me know

      I have a Joyner 1100cc Sand Viper in need of repair.  Does anyone know a repair shop or mechanic that services these in southern California?

      New to the forum so luckily there is some help out there lol. Recently bought a 2008 Joyner 1600cc sand viper and loving it. Took it out and had a little accident with a tree stump lol. The stump hit directly on my passenger side tie rod end and broke the heim joint that connects the tie rod end to the wheel. Does anyone know the size of the adjustable heim joint so I can order one? I am having a hard time sourcing one quickly. I am also guessing since it is an outter tie rod end, that it is LH pitched rather than RH? thanks for any help anyone can provide. This is again for the outter tie rod end heim joint that snapped. Thanks
