    I have had this Dakar for some months now, and I've sort of missed the fan during summer. Have not seen temperature warning light, so I have assumed it was ok. I decided that I had to check things out. My google searches told me I should pull the temperature sensor plug on the right side of...

    I was stuck in traffic today. The temp needle was pointing above the T of the word Temp on the gauge, so not in the red but the fan did not come on. I have tested the fan by by-passing the switch and the fan works. At what point should the fan come on?

    I picked up my second hand 1994 F650 yesterday and took it for its first ride having never been on one before. All very good and I am very happy but I noticed the cooling fan was coming on quite reguarly. I was driving in Central London so was stopping and starting quite a bit and I guess it was...
