Yesterday my Trooper blew the fan circuit fuse. The book says it should be 25amp and it had a 20amp installed. If anyone can tell which wire under the hood is the fan wire I would really appreciate it. The instrument power has been intermittent at times and I suspect the two failures may be related.

As a side note: I did my first oil change - - boy was that fun!!! My car has the welded in skid pan so I had to cut a hole to allow the oil to drain without creating a mess. After trying several ways to make the hole I finally ended up cutting it with my die grinder with a 3" cutting wheel. To contain the oil I got a canning funnel (has high sides and a wide mouth) to direct the oil unto the catch pan.

I was real proud of myself - didn't spill a drop ---- until I kicked the dirty oil can. Oh well! Murphy lives at my house.

Any words of wisdom will be appreciated.

Hi Flatbed,

Thanks for the information. Just to keep everything exciting Joyner put the fuse box on my Trooper right behind the passenger seat. I did discover which fuse was blown but would like to know what color wire and were it's located in the instrument panel. I know is goes somewhere through the dash because it's tied in with the ignition switch when starting.

Reading the manual is a real challange.

Thanks again for the input. It is appreciated.

I doubt the wire goes to the panel, maybe to the relay box which is controlled by the computer. Open up http://www.utvboard.com/post-a88-.html and save your self a copy, it's an electrical wiring diagram.

For your oil, I suggest http://www.quickoildrainvalve.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=210, take a look at Parts, Pieces, and Information for our Troopers, usually the 3rd topic under troopers and you should change the oil in your differentials also. At least open the fill plug and dip the oil to see what it looks like. Mine was silvery the first time I did mine. one bottle does both diffs.2093207660104110397PpxreP_th.jpg

It probably wasn't your fault that the dirty oil got spilled, it was one of those garage gremlins that hide tools, move parts and pushes things of your bench all the time.

Thank you Kinarfi,

I downloaded the schematic and now all I have to do is learn Chinese - ah sow!

Your idea is a good one. Putting a petcock on the oil drain should be quite safe from harm considering where it's buried.

I will definitely look into that.

Geez, you have a gremlin at your place too. He sure has a lot of relatives.

You folks on this board are awesome. It's good to be a part of it.

Enjoy your evening!

      We own a 2020 Kubota RTV-XG-850, with only 400 hours on it and it has been at the dealer 3+ months. We were just informed our engine failed and requires a complete rebuild at only 400 hours! There is a loss of compression in cylinder #1, which is causing backfiring and a loss of power. There is also excess gas in the engine oil. 
      We are just outside of the manufacture's warranty period, and they are serving us a nearly $5000 repair bill, with only a 90 day warranty.

      A member at a different forum had the same issue at 22 hours and fortunately, his RTV is under warranty. He was informed that "short tripping" (as Kubota describes it) causes gasoline to enter into the engine oil, which causes a dilution of engine oil and eventually leads to catastrophic engine failure. This killed our engine in under 400 hours!

      Is anyone else with a 2018-2022 XG-850 running into similar issues?

      Where does an Axis 500 receive power from?  Is there a relay from the ignition switch or is the pump controlled by the ECM? Asking for some folks that are having issues that seem to be a lost ground.
