Hi Anonymous, check for a loose bulb or connection and also a loose or bad speedometer ground wire. Good luck

SOURCE: Red key shaped light flashing on speedometer

The red key indicator is to do with your security system. When you turn the ignition on and put the handlebar control to the "RUN" position, power is applied to the fuel pump inside the fuel tank, that is probably the sound you are hearing.

The red key indicator usually flashes to show that the system is armed.

If you have a problem the only way to really find out whats going on is to have a dealer check the bike for trouble codes, this is usually done by connecting a computer to the data plug on your bike (this connector is usually found under the seat near the battery).

Hope some of this helped.

While merging onto the highway when my car hit 3 and 4th gear the engine seemed to "stutter/misfire" during harder acceleration. Check engine light also flashed briefly during hard acceleration. Dur


Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

Speedometer quit, Drive 4 light started flashing, check engine light now on, slight power loss when accelerating


check your wheel speed sensors. and vehicle speed sensor on the transmission

drive 4 uses it to sense slip in the front/rear wheels.

check engine light on because it needs to know vehicle speed to shift properly.

no speedometer because it turns the voltage into a signal to the gauge

1996 pajero 4WD transmission making loud noises intermitently. Front wheel indicator lights flash on dash during and stay flashing after noise has stopped. Have put into 4WD mode and back to 2WD but...


mechanic is in error
smoking on acceleration after idling ( at lights etc) is valve stem seals
blue smoke on acceleration while travelling is an indication of excessive big end bearing clearance overloading the oil control rings
you don't say what type of transmission you have but if it is a CV transmission it could be a failing drive belt in the transmission especially if you have added normal atf oil at any time
