Savage Posted November 27, 2021 Share Posted November 27, 2021 Purchased a 2022 defender xmr. Got it home, backed it off the trailer. Drove it around the driveway for less than 10 min and got a high coolant temp warning. I immediately turned it off and started looking for the problem. I didn't recall hearing fan cycle so started looking there. Discovered that there was a blown 10A fuse in fuse panel under passenger seat. Upon further inspection I discovered that the 10A key switch fuse was in the cooling fan position, and the 25A cooling fan fuse was in the key switch position. I replaced the blown 10A fuse and put them in their proper place. Cooling fan now cycles as it should. Comes on at about 205° and off at about 198°. It runs fine now, but I'm very concerned about possible engine damage. It had 0.2 hrs on it at the time of this happening. I will be contacting dealership Tues morning when they open. Just looking for some advice. Does the dealership install the fuses during assembly or are they already installed when they get the machine? How should I handle this with the dealership? How concerned should I be about engine damage? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
