Re: check air filter warning light

My first guess would be that water got inside the connector and is closing the circuit ie. making continuity. Disconnect and see if light goes out. If so blow out connector and reconnect, light should stay out. Give it a try [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]hope this helps

Re: check air filter warning light

You might also check the filter. If it became soaked with water, then it may be swollen/plugged enough to be causing the issue. If in doubt, change the filter. If the problem doesn't go away after changing the filter, save the old filter for later use. Don't forget to reset the filter minder.

Re: check air filter warning light

No, there is a yellow reset button on the end of the filter minder. Just push it and it should reset the filter minder.

He did reset it.

I agree with snoboy, check the connection. Also like Black05 said, check the filter. The minder may just be working right. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: check air filter warning light

FamilyRide -- Thanks for the catch. I missed that he had already reset it.

No problem. I meant to put a little smiley after that. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

I'm almost ready to take bets that the filter is actually restricted and the filter minder is just working correctly. It's rare to actually have one get restricted enough to set it.

Re: check air filter warning light

True. The only ones that I've heard of occluded enough to trip the minder are where snow has gotten in the intake before the filter. I also am still betting the filter is water swollen and plugged.
