Question about 2004 Harley Davidson FXSTB - FXSTBI Night Train

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Night Train FSXTBI and after the speedometer gets to 25 MPH the check engine light comes on, the security light comes on, and the speedometer back light goes out. Any suggestions?

I can ride the bike up to 25 MPH and then the check engine light comes on as well as the security light and the speedometer light goes out. The bike runs fine with no problems at all. When I stop at a light the check engine and security lights come back on and the speedometer light comes back on. I tried cleaning the battery cables thinking it might be a loose ground but it still does the same thing. Could this be a sensor that is going off and I don't know about it?

SOURCE: check engine light acting up

The first thing I would check is the voltage output from the charging system. If the regulator isn’t regulating, the voltage will keep climbing as the engine speed increases. The electronics in the speedometer don’t work well at these high voltages. This would also explain the bright marker lamps. You should be able to see this with a simple voltmeter across the battery terminals.

Try inside the tach on the connector. But also remove your speed sensor on the transmission and clean it. They pick up metal chips from the trans and short out. Also, HD had a bunch of bad speedos around your year. They replaced them for free. Doubtful they will replace yours at this late date. You might end up buying a new speedo.

unplug your voltage regulator. If the speedometer works while the voltage regulator is unplugged, your regulator is bab.

How many speed sensor's are there on a 99 Dodge Dakota sport an were are they located


There is an ABS wheel speed sensor located in the rear differential.
If this fails it affects the ABS and may cause your speedometer to read erroneously at speeds under 25-30 mph. There is also a VSS located in automatic transmission housing. Manual trans vehicles don't have this. They use engine rpm to determine speed as there is supposedly no slippage in the manual drive train.

Engine light on 2005 harley davidson night train


The engine light is letting you know somethimg is wrong and the bike has a code. If you have a code reader, you can access the harness thru the diagnostic plug. The dealer can also hook the bike up to Digital Technician to read the code. Or, you can access the code by using your turn signal switches and reading the code in the odometer. Instructions fgor this are in your owners manual.

Speedometer works intermittently and when it quits the engine light comes on speedo starts working engine light goes off


Hi Anonymous, always check your instrument fuse before performing the next procedure, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap on Twin Cams and on top of the engine case between the rear cylinder and the starter motor for Sportsters. Remove the the bolt that secures the sensor and pull it out of the transmission. Inspect sensor for obvious damage and repace if necessary. If sensor has no damage then wipe clean any obvious contamination like micro fiberous material with a clean rag and reinstall, torque bolt to 8 ft lbs. Next check the connector to the speedometer for correded, broken or loose pins/sockets. If your problems still exist try replacing your ignition relay if your year and model has one. Good luck and have nice day.
