I have a jonway 250 scooter, a strange thing happened, while I was driving I heard a fan like a fan, then when I stopped I turned off the engine and took off the key, but the starter continued to run until it was probably discharged the battery has definitely switched off. After about an hour I tried to turn it on again and it worked properly, what could happen?
Your post is a bit confusing. What I THINK you said is, while driving you heard a NOISE like a fan (that would be normal, the fan cycles on and off as needed while the engine is running). Then you stopped, shut off the engine and removed the key, but the STARTER kept on cranking and discharged the battery (definitely NOT normal!). Then you waited a while and the scooter started and ran normally. (also not normal if indeed the battery had been discharged).
Did you perhaps mean that after shutting down the scooter the FAN kept running for awhile? That might be normal, it might keep running until the coolant temperature at the radiator drops below a certain point and then shuts off (although I'm not sure if that would be the case with the ignition switch off and the key removed). That would NOT mean the battery was discharged, only that the fan had switched itself off, and the fact that the scooter started normally later on supports that.
First are you using the kill switch or just the key? Try using kill switch after shut off turn key off if that works start pulling apart key switch and see if wires are touching each other or bad connection
Okay, so it was definitely the STARTER that continued to crank after you shut off thde engine and pulled the key? If so that certainly suggests a short somewhere, battery power getting to the starter solenoid or directly to the starter when it shouldn't. The buzzing you heard, then, might have been the starter bendix (not sure if that's what it's called on a scooter) trying to engage as you're driving along. Not good. If it happens again by all means take crwford's suggestion about using the kill switch, but in addition, take a hard look at all the wiring from battery through starter solenoid to the starter itself. Something really weird is going on there, with considerable damage potential if not fixed.
I replaced the fusebox on my 2011 Roketa with a generic one from AutoZone, and relocated it to a more accessible place under the seat to make it easier to get at. Wiring it was a bit tedious, had to lengthen numerous wires to reach to the new location, but the fusebox itself worked fine once I had it all hooked up. No reason you would have to find an OEM fusebox.

I think my Jonway Ranger also has a drain problem to the battery because I bought it from a man who said the switch wears out easily and to just use the key. Probably the fault isn’t on the bike it was in the ear so I’ll try that and report back my findings.
