Joyner Trooper / Renegade Support Comment

Disclaimer:  My spell checker thinks it knows more of what words I want to use than I do.  Typos are not my fault.

This is a general comment on the support I received from Joyner-USA in Phoenix, AZ.  I needed one headlight assembly for my Renegade because the mounting pin was broken.  Duct tape and bailing wire held it in place for a few years.  To my surprise, they had them IN STOCK.  I bought two and kept one of  my good old ones as a backup.   They completed their move to a new address at 2415 S 18th Pl, Phoenix AZ from their former Riverside location.  As a gift, Jake gave me two T-shirts.  He said he as most of the parts for my  2014 Joyner Renegade.  I looked at his yard and he has several engines and UTVs in stock, mostly the 1100cc engines and several Renegades.  Maybe a Trooper or two was buried in there somewhere.  Everything was crated and outdoors.  I hope he moves his inventory indoors, out of the weather.  Their website says their hours are 9:00AM - 5:00PM but their actual hours are 10:00AM - 5:00PM.  I arrived at about 9:20AM and no one was there; place locked up.  I was a little upset that with a 9:00AM opening, someone should have been there.  I was concerned that I made a 70 mile round trip for nothing.  Fortunately, one of his employees showed up and told me of their later hours.  So, everything turned out fine.  I got the parts I needed and two T-shirts.  This is based upon a one time, 1st time experience.  I hope future vists are just as good.

I was there a few weeks ago to pick up some shocks, wheel bearings and some suspension parts. Also was given 2 T shirts (score!). They had all the parts I needed in stock. I live in Quartzsite AZ so it's about 150 miles each way. Glad they are still up and running and it doesn't seem like they are going away anytime soon.

Glad you had a good experience...I have ordered parts from Joyner years ago and had great experience, the tech there was happy to answer my questions about some troubleshooting I was doing.

Who was the tech you talked to I emailed a tech there and he didn't know much and never got back to me even after many email asking for help.

      2020 550 Coleman.   have a fault code 118   And I’ve replaced the sensor I have spark but still doesn’t crank

      Hey Folks
      There are not a lot of good sources out there for troubleshooting and diagnosing ECU problems with the Massimo Buck, Bennche Bighorn, Bennche Cowboy, & Cazador machines that use the Delphi MT05 ECU. They are all basically the same with different badging, so I thought I'd share some info that I found during some searches. I was trying to help someone diagnose and repair a hard starting issue.  The ignition coil was throwing a 0351 code.  I discovered how to read codes without an OBDII code reader.  The following procedures should help you check your fault codes and clear them if needed.
      Fault Code Troubleshooting for Delphi MT05 ECU on the Massimo Buck 400, Bennche Bighorn 400, Bennche Cowboy 400, and Cazador 400
      *NOTE: The MT05 ECU is not really OBD 2 compliant. It is much more similar to an OBDI system.  The MT05 ECU controls either 1 or 2 cylinder engines commonly found on Massimo, Bennche, and Cazador.
      Much of the ECU info was found here:
      https://netcult.ch/elmue/HUD ECU Hacker/Delphi MT05 Manual.pdf
      Delphi EFI System Design
      Delphi EFI employs 5 sensors to monitor engine performance.
      1. Crankshaft Position Sensor
      2. Coolant Temperature Sensor
      3. Oxygen Sensor
      4. Throttle Position Sensor
      5. Manifold Air Pressure/Manifold Air Temperature (MAP/MAT) Sensor
      Delphi EFI employs the following system components.
      1. MT05 Engine Control Unit (ECU)
      2. Fuel Pump
      3. Multec 3.5 Fuel Injector
      4. Idle Speed Control Valve (Idle Stepper Motor)
      5. Multec Ignition Coil
      6. Fuel Vapor Canister Purge Valve
      Using the Digital Dashboard to Decipher EFI Trouble Codes
      In addition to commercially available diagnostic scan tools (Big $$$), you can use the engine warning light of the Siemens dashboard to diagnose most of your EFI problems. The digital dashboard receives signals from the MT05 ECU, and the engine warning light will flash a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) if the ignition key is switched on/off for three cycles.
      When you turn on the ignition, the engine warning light will illuminate, which indicates the EFI system is operational. After the engine is started, the engine warning light will extinguish if the EFI system is working properly. However, if the engine warning light remains illuminated, it indicates the EFI system is not working properly, and there is a system component failure.
      Deciphering Diagnostic Trouble Codes
      To read the diagnostic trouble code (DTC), open and close the ignition key three times in rapid succession, as follows: open/close—open/close—open. At this point the engine warning light will flash a DTC which indicates the fault in the EFI system. Refer to the attached fault code table to identify the corresponding problem.
      The engine warning light will emit a sequence of flashing lights. If the light flashes 10 times, the translated number is 0. If the light flashes one time, the translated number is 1, et cetera.
      For example, if the MAP/MAT sensor is disconnected, or the connector is shorted to ground, the engine warning light will flash in the following manner (This is an example only).
      The engine warning light will flash 10 times: The first number of the DTC is 0
      After an interval of 1.2 seconds, the engine warning light will flash 1 time: The second number of the DTC is 1
      After an interval of 1.2 seconds, the engine warning light will flash 10 times: The third number of the DTC is 0
      After an interval of 1.2 seconds, the engine warning light will flash 7 times: The fourth number of the DTC is 7
      The resulting DTC is P0107.
      NOTE: For the system I was helping to troubleshoot, I suspected an ignition coil failure due to the code that was thrown.  When it was checked, it was flashing:  10, 3, 5, 1.  The 10 represents a 0.  So the actual code was 0351.  After finding the code, the coil wire was checked and discovered loose at the spark plug.  Once it was pushed fully on, the problem was fixed.  Most likely, this problem was created after the owner had pulled the spark plug to check the gap.  The ECU was rebooted using the procedures detailed below with no more codes being thrown.   
      If there are other fault codes, the engine warning light will flash the next code in 3.2 seconds after finishing the first sequence.  After all existing fault codes are flashed, the engine warning light will repeat the fault codes in a loop sequence, until the ignition key is turned off.
      To clear fault codes you either need an OBDII Fault Code reader and a Delphi 6 pin connector adapter cable that you have to order from China and wait 8 weeks…OR....you can simply reboot the ECU using the instructions detailed below.
      Rebooting the ECU
      Perform the following steps to reboot the ECU.
      1. Turn off the ignition for 15 seconds.
      2. Turn the ignition on/off for 5 cycles. Make sure each cycle lasts about ½ second, verifying the start of the fuel pump for each cycle. If the fuel pump doesn't start during any cycle, begin the entire reboot procedure from the beginning.
      3. Turn off the ignition for 15 seconds.
      TPS (throttle position sensor) re-learn procedure after rebooting ECU.
      This should be done after replacing the TPS or the ECU....and it is advisable to check proper idle after rebooting an ECU too.   Source: ECU Hacker (Reworded process slightly to make it a more sensible flow in my mind):    1. Turn the idle screw one full turn clockwise before starting   2. Start the engine, and run at low idle until the engine warms.  Maybe a couple of mins.   3. Idle should be above 1500 rpm. If it isn’t, turn it up to 1700 then shut the engine off.  Do another reboot of ECU.   4. Restart the engine and let it stabilize at 1700 rpm.  Then turn the idle screen down to 1500 rpm and let it stabilize for a few seconds.  Once it stabilizes, set to the final recommended idle speed for your machine. The placard under (or behind) your seat should show idle speed, valve adjustment, spark gap, etc.  Typically the 390 cc engines in the "400" machines run at 1600 rpm idle. 
        5. Shut it down. Wait 10-15 seconds before restarting.  The procedure is now complete.  Final Notes:
      I have included pictures of an OBDII connector and the Delphi 6 pin connector in case anyone wants to go buy stuff off ebay or local parts suppliers and build a connector to use for an OBDII reader. But...you can save money and simply do the same thing with code reading and resetting using the check engine light on your dash.  Some folks prefer to do it with code readers.  
      Hope the information provided helps if anyone ever needs it but cannot find it in repair manuals. I discovered most of this in some motorcycle forums.  The source for the diagrams is here:
      https://netcult.ch/elmue/HUD ECU Hacker/
      Be advised: I am not a service technician.  I do not endorse any manufacturers. I do not get paid to help, nor do I want to.  This is just a hobby of mine.  I enjoy working on things and solving problems.  If you run into a weird problem that stumps you, give me a shout.  I may be able to give you some ideas...or not.  Just know, that troubleshooting thru emails can be challenging.  The more info you can provide, the better.  Otherwise, I will probably ask you a ton of questions.  The good news is, the Delphi system used on these machines is essentially an OBDI and it is very simplistic.  If you are methodical and patient, most of your "problems" can be figured out thru a process of elimination.  Always go for the simple things first before throwing money and sensors at a machine.  
      Take care

      Hey guys! Newbie here. I'm an old man who's better with plowing a mule (4-legged kind) than these newfangled beasts. I, and a friend of mine, just bought new Coleman sxs and are having to finish the assembly. I've been reading on this site and I'm falling on the mercy of you experts. The only way I'm an expert is that an "ex" is a has been, and a spurt is a drip under pressure. LOL First off, the 2 buggies have no ignition switches. They seem to mount on the dash, not the opening in the steering wheel shaft cover, so we ordered new ones that are supposed to fit. They are 8 inches long, and have a 4-wired white plugin which is slightly rectangled when looking at the end of the plug. The trouble is there's nothing to plug into. There is a three-wire grey plug close enough to reach the four-wire plug, but of course, they are not compatible. 
      Secondly, the blinker, light, ect. unit on steering wheel just spins around when touched. I see no way in heaven or earth to secure it. I've looked at a diagram on the Powersports site, but can't detect how it mounted. Fellows I'd be so grateful for any help with this. Me and my mule will even plow your garden for free, for your help. LOL

      Does anyone know how to adjust the headlights on a 2024 Hisun sector /Bad Boy Bandit 750? The high beams are where the low beams ought to be.
      Thanks Randy
