honda foreman oil light?

6 posts in this topic

2 questions about my foreman 400. The oil light comes on all the time. After ideling just a couple minuted. Sometimes it stays on the whole time. Sometimes it shuts off after a few minutes. Could there be a bad sensor or something? Oil is fresh and right at the full mark so oil level is not any of the problem. The engine is far from being too hot. It was doing all last fall and this spring just driving around the yard so it is not over heating. Second question is my oil cooling fan doesn't seem to work. What should I check? Thanks!

Sounds like either a bad connection at the temp sensor, or the sensor itself is bad.

I had the same problem with mine and i just ended up putting the fan on a swith so i can just have it run all the time easiest fix I could figure out

DRH:

I had the exact same problem. Oil light was on for no reason at start up, cold engine, etc. It was the fan control unit that failed. Ever since I replaced it I have not had a problem and my fan works properly. It's a little black box under the plastic on the front of the machine. You should be able to see it and replace it without tearing the plastic off.

It also could be the oil temp sensor too, but I'm guessing it the cooling fan control unit.

See this post HERE for more info.

Thanks! I will try that. The fan doesnt work either so maybe that will fix both of my issues.

    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
