2011 joyner r2 fuel pump fuse

Recommended Posts

Hi...

I am having an issue with the fuel pump fuse blowing as soon as I turn the key on. The utv was running great and all of a sudden it blew the fuse and now wont run. The unit only has 250 miles on it. Any ideas on where to start? Im in western north carolina and cant find anyone to work on it. Thanks.

Sounds like a dead short to me. With 250 miles, I really don't think it could be much. I'd look underneath the thing, at the wiring. A lot of times sticks, or logs and stuff gets kicked up and can damage the wiring. Other than that, it could be the pump itself. Try un plugging the wire to the fuel pump, then turn it on, see if it still blows a fuse. If not, use a test light to see if you've got 12 volts at that plug. If there's 12v at the plug, then the pump is the problem.

Thank you kenfain for your insight! Sounds logical. I will give that a shot in the next day or two. Do you own a Joyner and if so where have you found the place to get parts?

I've got a mule, it's not for play. It's for work around the farm. But all off road vehicles can be subjected to a lot of abuse from underneath. I installed a large plate of 5/8 thick bed liner type plastic under the vulnerable areas on the mule. But I'm always pulling jammed sticks out from various places on the thing. And the mule seldom sees speeds over ten MPH. So that's the first thing that comes to mind with a relatively new off-road vehicle.

I'm not sure if I know what a Joyner is. I've seen the pictures posted by other members. They look like fun, kinda like a mini sand rail. If parts aren't available locally, looks like online is going to be the way to go. However, as popular as these things seem to be, there's got to be a dealer someplace within driving distance. I find the internet has way more choices for after market parts. As far as OEM parts, I like the web for those also, even car parts.

You mentioned not having someone local to service the unit. I'm very cautious about letting people work on my stuff. I've been burned too many times. Buy a service manual if you can, it's the best way to go.

Thanks Kenfain.....

Well, I had my neighbor take a look at the machine for me (I am out of state so I had him look). He said he disconnected the wiring from the fuel pump and turned the key and the fuse still blew. So, I am guessing the pump is ok, just as you suspected. Then he said he took out the relay and turned the key and again the fuse blew. So, are we right in assuming there is a dead short somewhere between the fuse and relay? Electical issues are such a pain.

Thanks for any insight.

At this point, a wiring diagram could be helpful. But at the least, you should see about finding what the wire color, and the routing of the fuel pump hot wire. On a small machine that doesn't have a lot of electrical circuits, you could probably just look and see where it goes.

Doing the easy stuff first, carefully inspect the wiring bundle you've identified as belonging to the fuel pump circuit. I usually start by careful inspection of the exposed underside. Sticks and logs get kicked up on the trail, sometimes damaging the wires. Often the culprit is still hanging there, so be vigilant, it could save some time. If this quick inspection doesn't turn up obvious cuts or contusions, you'll have to inspect the whole bundle from key to pump. Check wires for physical damage. Check plugs, switches, relay, and don't forget the ignition switch itself.

If that doesn't locate the problem it's time to use an electrical tester of some type. I'll use both a test light, and a meter, set to the ohms scale. That's for testing continuity.

Your problem does sound like a dead short caused by a break in the insulation. These are typically fairly easy to spot. Sometimes all you can see is an un natural bend in the wiring bundle. Closer inspection reveals the break. In most cases it'll take less time to find the problem, than it took me to type it. Keep us posted on any progress!

When looking for what ever is blowing the fuse, rig a high wattage light, like a spot light or head light, to take the place of the fuse and save the fuses until you find the short.

Read parts and pieces, Pinned subject, lots of info there, parts--- jmc, silver bullet, joyner usa

      We have been having all kinds of fuel issues with this ranger.  When you try to start it when it is cold outside, it does not want to start.  It will crank over fine but doesn't start but if you stop and come back 10 minutes later or so, it will start up.  But even then, it is idling real bad.  Usually will die a few times before you can get going, really have to feather the gas pedal to keep it alive.  Once it gets warmed up, it does start better but something still not right.  Even when it is warm outside, it will start up but just doesn't idle right.
      I bought a fuel pump kit, not the whole assembly, just the pump and replaced that and the same thing happens.  I am in the process of trying to check the fuel pressure on it but the fuel pressure gauge I got from our local auto parts store seems to be defective.  Had it hooked up and can't get the gauge to show any pressure at all yet it will still start up.   If it does have the correct pressure, what would be the next place to start looking at?  If it doesn't have correct pressure, is there something else on the assembly that would cause low pressure?  We checked the voltage on the connecter and one gets 12 volts for just a few seconds and the other one gets 4.9 volts.  The other 2 show nothing.  I am guessing the one with 4.9 volts is for the fuel gauge sender and the one that has 12 volts is the pump.   When you take the fuel line off on the engine side and turn the key on, how far should it throw fuel out?  
      We have taken it to 2 shops and neither one was able to do anything with it, one said there was nothing wrong.  Not sure if they really did any checking or what or they just don't know what to do with it.  
      Would the whole fuel pump assembly out of a ranger 570 work with the ranger 800?  Would I be able to swap them without any issues?  To buy a whole new assembly, it's around $400, don't really want to spend that much not knowing if it will fix it or not.

      Hello there, I have 4 T2 troopers, 2 of them start and run like Champs, 2 of them have the issue. They will crank and crank but not start. Takes about 20 to 30 minutes to get them going, then they will run all day long and fire up at will every time. It's just the cold start they have a problem with. Since I have 2 that run good, I have swapped every part you can think of from the fuel system to ignition system with no success. I'm pretty stumped and am looking for any advice

      Hey guys.
      I have a 2009 hisun 700 I bought bout 2 weeks ago and it was running fine but was hard to start but once warm it fire rite up  i took the  air filter off and it was nasty so I gave it a good cleaning and it hasn't started since. Its cranking over really slow I replaced the starter. I also replaced the batery. It acts like its not releasing decompression  I found a service manual on line and downloaded it and it said the intake valves setting .010-.015 mm  and exhaust is .015-.020 and they all was set on .008 intake and exhaust. And the timing is set I set the intake to .012 and exhaust to .016 and it still cracks over really slow I'm lost and don't know wat else it could be. Anyone have any ideas.  And help would be great thanks .

      Dipstick shows pale color, dont think its water, smells like fuel, oil changed one week ago, level is very high.
      First I thought it was water condensed into the oil...but someone pointed out the smell, and it doesn't look white-milky. And a half qt or so in one week?
      So is it possible to get fuel leaking into the oil?

      Hi, 
      Just purchased a 2015 Massimo 400 EFI. While I was cleaning the air filter sponge I noticed fuel was dripping out of the air box. Any ideas where this may be coming from? 
      Since it has electronic fuel injection I wouldn't think a carb float would be stuck or something like that. 
      Any advice is appreciated.
