My thermoswitch is knackered.

Does anyone know the generic part number or if other models fit. Dont want to pay 40 for something that i can probably get at the motor factor for a tenner. I do think some hondas have the same part, but they are prob just as expensive as the original part.

TIA.

okay, so just read the workshop manual and it says it should give continuity at 105. I tested at 100, so may need to see if that extra temperature is enough to get it to closed and put the fan.

Still like a linky if there is a low cost auto option.

There is a cheap version ( 10 )that I found sold on E*ay but after I found other alternatives which switched the fan on at a slightly lower temperature, I didn't bother getting one...... try searching for 191105286165 and if you get one, please review. big grin If you want details and part numbers of other options, pls ask

Oh.......and have you considered fitting an override switch in case you are in heavy traffic and the fan doesn't come on?

I've done that overide switch conversion all thanks to oldskool. Its worth doing especially when your stuck in traffic on a hot sunny day, like I am on Scarborough sea front. nod

yeah, i saw that kawa switch - ill probably order one of those.

As I am unsure now if it broke, im gonna fit a bypass switch in. for the sake of 10 mins work, its better than omg-hgf and a warped head.

I don't think you realise that Scarborough is near the Equator line.

PS: I've sent you a PM.

Pilinggas. I've just been asking oldskool about this one I found. It's a bit more expensive than the cheap Chinese one.

THERMO SWITCH

As for the Chinese one I've just chucked them a cheeky offer of a fiver. I'm just waiting for a nice reply from them. I may find out what F**K OFF is in Chinese shortly. laugh laugh

Hello Nuggitt, I bought a slightly cheaper one from Intermotor No.50310 on ebay for 12 posted. It comes on at 90c and goes off at 85c. So I will be leaving the fan as automatic.
It does have two leads out of the top about 10cm long, which can have spade ends crimped onto them.
I also ordered from china a guage sensor for 99p delivered, though I cannot confirm its working yet, but it is solid brass and looks good. It has a threaded top so will need a ring end crimped on, instead of the bullet end and secured with a stainless nyloc nut and washer. Regards OGRI.

As any of these thermoswitches can fail without warning, I fitted an override switch too, "just in case".. .......I reckon the Kawasaki advertised one on e*ay will do and is cheap BUT without trying it, we have no idea of quality...BUT...I am so looking forward to John(Nuggit) educating us in Chinese though!!!! nod

Made them a few offers this morning and finally got one for 9 and its on the slow boat this very moment. I'm due an antifreeze change this season so I'll fit it then and see if it lasts more than a fortnight. big grin
