Ducati Diavel Service Manual: Radiator fan relay


The radiator fans are powered via a specific relay, which is enabled by the engine control unit.

In the event of fault

In the event of a radiator fan relay fault, the radiator fans themselves do not work. The relay is not commanded by the ecu.

Fault codes generated and possible correlated faults fault codes generated by the engine control unit and displayed by the dds (fan relay diagnosis):


Check integrity of electric circuit - short-circuit to vdc = with dashboard on, using a voltmeter, a voltage is measured between the wire tested and ground.

Check integrity of electric circuit - short-circuit to ground = with the battery cables disconnected, using an ohmmeter, continuity is detected between the wire tested and ground.

Check integrity of electric circuit - open circuit = with the battery cables disconnected, using an ohmmeter, no continuity is detected between the two ends of the wire tested.

The dashboard service display shows the error "fan relay" and the eobd warning light activates.

Possible correlated faults: coolant reaches boiling point but radiator fans not working. Check:

The radiator fan relay may be actuated from the dds to check radiator fan function.

The fans are normally activated at 103 and switched off at 101C.

If none of the aforementioned tests identify the problem and the radiator fan relay is in proper working order, replace the engine control unit.

Component replacement methods

No special measures are necessary in order to replace the radiator fan relay.

Starter motor relay
Introduction When the rider presses the start button, with all the safety conditions required to enable engine start met, the engine control unit enables the relay that activates the starter motor ...

Engine speed-timing sensor
Introduction The engine control system of the diavel is equipped with an inductive sensor that allows the ecu to determine the speed and timing phase of the engine. The sensor faces a phonic wheel ...

Rh switch
Red on/off switch. Black engine start button. The switch (1) has three positions: Centre: run off. In this position, the engine cannot be started and all electronic devices are off. Pushed down: on/off. In this position, the system can be turned on (key-on) and off (key-off). Pus ...

Check the idle and the co amount with warm engine
Start the engine; Switch on the dds and check that it does not signal any error (otherwise consult the relevant paragraph of this manual to reset the error and proceed with the idle check); Enter the "self diagnosis" menu by selecting the diavel model in the available vehicle version. ...

Refitting the primary drive gears and checking backlash
Fully degrease the crankshaft splined end and the corresponding spline on the primary drive gear. Position the spacer (c) onto the crankshaft. Fit the driving gear (b) onto the crankshaft with the oil pump drive sprocket facing the crankcase. Temporarily secure the gear with the was ...
