hi all. Several times today, at idle, the overheating light and warning would sound. It occurred once also at a speed of 20MPH.

I pulled the pump off and noticed the wear ring was scored but only minimally IMO. Changed the wear ring. Tried it again, and no over heating at idle, but alarm sounded a couple times again around 20mph.

Any ideas as to what to check next? Coolant level looks fine. (2014 900ace)

Thanks!

You can flush it on the hose and make sure that there's water coming out of the jet pump. That'll at least let you know that the cooling circuit is intact, though it won't tell you if it's leaking into the hull. An intermittent alarm might be a symptom of other issues. Damaged sensor maybe?

Is it exhaust overheating or just overheating? If it is just overheating the wear ring or jet drive will have nothing to do with the cooling. The engine is cooled with coolant and a heat exchanger.

I'll try this. Thanks

Given that I'm relying solely on the warning light and chime for overheating, how would I tell if it was exhaust or just overheating?

Dealer found that the wire used for the temp sensor was not secured properly from the factory. It had chafed through, thus the intermittent temp warnings. BRP refused to cover under warranty as the doo was 13 months old - and electrical is covered for just one year. Why is it companies will no longer stand by their products?

They stand by their product, for one year. I don't know why some people would expect for a 12 month warranty to last for more than 12 months.

They do stand behind their product, they include a one year warranty with the product, they could just give a 6 month warranty with it, or they could also limit it by hours, you do also have the option to buy extended warranty or you could just buy a new machine every year then you are always covered by warranty, the new units this year came with two years warranty if you bought them when the promotion was on.
