    The odometer numbers are still showing digitally, however they do not change. The miles will change and the needle will move occasionally. The speedometer needle is not moving. I just can't see how fast I am going. What a way to keep low mileage.

    Thanks guys, I just don't know. Right now I am working on my house that flooded during hurricane Ike, I will get back to the bike issue once the house is back in shape. In the meantime I will just have to ride without a cable. Heck I don't even have time to drop it off at the shop. At least I'll basically have a new interior in the home when I'm done.

If your unit is cable driven, get yourself an old piece of cable and insert it up into the speedo and then spin the cable while watching. If the needle jumps its pretty much assured the speedo head is ok and that your problem is in the cable or in the front wheel. Bill

What are the symptoms of a bad crank shaft sensor on a harley


If the sensor is bad, it'll throw a PO374 error code.

You DID check for any error codes, right?

Turn the Ignition switch to the OFF position.
Set the Run/Stop switch to the Run position.
Push in the odometer reset button and hold.
Turn on the ignition switch and release the odometer reset button. The process has been completed correctly when the speedometer needle sweeps across the speedometer and all indicator lamps illuminate. The speedometer will also display "DIAG."
Press the odometer reset button once. "PSSPt" will display on the speedometer. Each letter signifies an area of the diagnostics testing, with the current selection flashing. Push the odometer reset button to scroll through the components for testing.
Press and hold the odometer reset button for 5 seconds, then release. Any codes stored will be displayed on the speedometer. If no codes are stored, the speedometer will display "NONE."
Press the odometer reset button again to view additional codes, if any.
After any codes, the part's serial number (in what ever component you're in) will scroll across.
Record the codes and refer to your service manual (or post for others to look up) for possible faults or conditions.
Turn off the Ignition switch to exit the diagnostics testing.

Can you purchase a data link connector for your code reader


Do you mean a auto code reader?
If so, I haven't seen an adapter for that.

If you want to use the code reader just to retrieve error codes (DTCs), on your bike you don't even need a reader.

Turn the Ignition switch to the OFF position.
Set the Run/Stop switch to the Run position.
Push in the odometer reset button and hold.
Turn on the ignition switch and release the odometer reset button. The process has been completed correctly when the speedometer needle sweeps across the speedometer and all indicator lamps illuminate. The speedometer will also display "DIAG."

SPEEDOMETER QUIT


You may need another speedometer. The speed sensor sends a signal to both the speedo and the odometer. So if the sensor fails, both meters would stop working.
The speedo gets power from the same circuit as the warning lights.

Speedometer & odometer both quit after working intermittantly over time. For some time the odometer worked when the speedometer would only work once in awhile.They finally both quit together. There is...


if one or the other quit working and then both quit working then i would have to say by looking at the electrical diagram that it would be the speedo head itself. it sends only one signal to speedo head that the vehicle is moving so if one was working and not the other then the sensor in the trans should be doing its job but if both had quit at the same time i would say sensor in trans. good luck hpe this will help you let me know...................
