Temp Sensor Resistance Cold HS800 EFI (2014)

Recommended Posts

I suspect I have a faulty temp sensor but at the cost of the sensor plus 50 percent tariff plus the shipping cost to Costa Rica, i would like to confirm it - the Hisun 800 has 2 sensors - one in the radiator appears to be a fully open or fully closed bi-metal contact switch similar to the old household thermostats for your heating system. - My fans turn on and off automatically as they should and a jumper across the connector also triggers the fan - appears to be a simple logic circuit back to the computer that then trips a relay for the fans.  The second sensor is on the back cylinder almost hidden by the throttle body and idle control system - I have unplugged it, sprayed it with contact cleaner, checked the pins, tried to get a resistance reading across the sensor, reconnected it and still get a blinking red light on the display panel warning of high temperature - this occurs even when the buggy is still cold having just started it in the morning - I have not been able to trace out the other end of the cable on the display panel since it appears i will have to remove the entire front plastic to get to it - hoping i could confirm the resistance before i go to that step (this is the same buggy originally posted by Jim Magnuson last September when the spark arrestor overheated and burned the plastic pickup bed - I fixed that by removing and cleaning the spark arrestor and it has never glowed red again.  I would really like to put a guage in place of the digital idiot light since (from experience in automobiles) by the time the idiot light goes on you have already damaged the engine - Which brings the second question - would it be advisable to swap the front radiator sensor for a real sensor and then jumper the fans to always on condition at the connector so the computer contentedly thinks everything is working and it is doing its job ?

More reading and research and I guess it appears that both sensors are full make/break contact switches and a third sensor in the MAF/MAP/Temp sensor is the one that is variable resistance - sooo - if my dash light is always on for overheat condition, then i guess i need to follow the wire and find where it might be grounding out.

      Hey there, new member here, just looking for information and tips. I just purchased a Hisun strike 250 for my young son. We have taken it to elsinore mx park here in so cal and he had a blast. I know I am going to get a lot of feedback regarding this, but I have to tell you, for the money, and his age, I can't complain. It always starts, is a blast to ride, and yes, I can fit in it at 6.1 and 195lbs. Have we had any issues? sure, but about the same about as any other vehicle, so I can't really complain. We couldnt find any aftermarket parts for it, so we engineered our own 2 inch lift kit for it, and it worked great. We have mounted additional lights on it as well. Some of the things we did notice are that the shift linkage seemed to be rubbing the exhaust pipe, and so I modified the shift linkage, and now that problem is gone. I also noticed that the factory plastic is very brittle, meaning it will crack if not handled properly. The quality of the OEM nuts and bolts are very poor, they seem to strip out very easy. So, we are replacing what ever bolt we remove, with a higher quality version. The battery is not easy to access, and in a pinch, that could be a problem, as tools are required to get to the battery. If you were to need a jump out in the boonies, you might be stuck. Also, the factory 4 point harness is hard to adjust, so we might have to replace them with aftermarket versions. Aside from that, he has not really had any problems with it. Granted it is not a larger 500 or 900cc UTV, so the load and demands on it are less. I do wish it had more power, but since he's only 9, I am good for now lol. It never quit on us, ran great in 106 degree heat, and handled the muddy track with ease. Another plus, it fits in the back of my truck bed with the tailgate up lol. Just my 2 cents.

      I have a 2015 Kawasaki mule 4010 4x4 that wont run more that 5 seconds when the engine is cold and the o2 sensor is plugged in. once I disconnect the sensor it runs and has lots of white smoke out of the exhaust. once it warms up I can plug the o2 sensor in and it will run fine. I swapped the sensor and didn't get any change.

      Hi All,
      I am trying to source a replacement starter for my 2010 Hisun 800.  The part number on the starter is MX100709 800.  Is there any other manufacturer's (Honda, Polaris, Yamaha, etc.) starter that would be a suitable replacement?
      Thanks
      Kirk

      Hi,
      I'm new to the forum and live in Idaho.  It's getting colder, so I'm curious if anyone has installed a cab heater in their Hisun? I went to the dealer and they want $800 bucks and maybe more so I ordered a hot rod heater from Summit Racing. Thought I would see if anyone has experience they might share before I begin.

      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 .
