Fan is on

Hey guys. You can see in the projects section what I've been doing to Allie. I have no coolant in and very little oil due to the Tuxedo mod (waiting for rtv to cure to oil it)

Went to turn it over once or twice just to make sure everything clears everything, and when I turned the key to 'on' the fan came on immediately.

Any idea why? Is it because the coolant system is drained? I would imagine it's electrical but I wouldn't be surprised if it's because I have no coolant.

oil pressure light on without engine runnign?

I am going from memory here, but I think the temp sender and the oil pressure sender wires could be swapped out (I think they are close enough together)

If the fan lead is grounded, the fan runs.

Oil sender wire bolts on, fan wire is a spade connector. But there may be bullet connectors on up the line.

thats why I was thinking maybe they got swapped

on a second thought, pinched wire? when I bought my 2005, the dealer had to find a pinched wire on the oil sending unit before I would accept delivery.

I think the bullets are reversed, so it's hard to mix them up. Just from memory though.

Keep in mind this wasn't happening before the stator mod.

I did the blue wire bypass so maybe I scru'd something there?

Also haven't hooked up the stator yet.

Also, could I have fried something welding on the bike? Fuses are all fine. Oil light doesn't come on when ignition is turned to the on position..... But like I said, I've started and rode this bike and this didn't happen so I didn't switch wires up since then.

did you pull the motor to do the tuxedo mod?

if so, you had to remove at least the oil sender connector.
