P0485

So, my Cat through a code Sunday while out riding along with the check engine light and high heat warning light. I believe from what I have found that the fuse is blown going to the fan. I haven't checked it yet do to not having time. I did find somewhere that a few people stated that if you go through water while the electronic fan is on that it will blow the fuse. Kind of crazy I think. Anyone have a recommendation? The only one I could find was a auto-resetting fuse. Thoughts?

tried resettable fuses but they didn't work. Put in a 20 amp fuses and havn't had a problem in 2 years. I go into water often so I believe that is the solution.

They do seem under fused. I have heard great things about the auto reset. I carry spare 20 amp fuses to be on the safe side!

Well, it was the fuse. I replaced it with the 15 amp spare and it worked fine. So I guess the remedy is the 20 amp? Mine is snorkeled for the reason of being able to go through water and I never thought about blowing a fan fuse. I wonder if it blows due to the resistance the water places on the fan? Anyone ever bypass the thermostat and put a manual switch on the fan?

Installing a manual switch to shut off the fan while in water, seems like a great idea to me. I am going to do it to mine. Because of my short attention span, I will also install a warning light or audible alert along with it so I don't forget to re-activate the fan once clear of the water.

Once again, my fuse blew. This time I didn't realize it until the temperature hit above 240. Not sure how high it got. When I stopped, the radiator was boiling over. Let it sit for a while and got the fan running again to cool the motor off quicker. Seems to be okay other than needing to add coolant. Any thoughts on temperature or if there is anything I should check?

Add coolant to fill it, bleed it, and then see what happens. I've overheated mine with no harm!

Any special type of coolant to use on the AC's?

Mine is green. So I would think regular Prestone would be fine.
