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.

    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
