Hi Anonymous, no it is supposed to work with the ignition switch turned in the on or run position. That being said do you remember the phrase " cleanliness is next to Godliness " there is a speed sensor located on the right side of the transmission case between the top cover and the starter end cap held in place by a small allen screw. Remove said screw and sensor and cleanse the evilness that shrouds the end of of the sensor, forbidding it to function, with a clean rag and some brake kleen or simular solvent. Then re-install sensor and go for a ride. Good luck

I have a 2004 softail deuce and the speedometer quit working. The odometer is still lit up, but the speedometer won't work. Any ideas where to begin to try to fix this issue?


Hi Cowboy376787, 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.

MY HARLEY FAT BOY 2002 SPEEDOMETER FACE NEEDS TO REPLACED


You're better of to simply purchase a new speedo. There are places that can replace the face in your speeometer but this work is expensive. The service is primarily for restoring antique speedometers. Just buy a new speedo.

Good Luck

I HAVE A 1994 GEO PRISM 1.6L THE SPEEDOMETER DOESNT WORK , I REPLACED THE CLUSTER AND THE SENSOR THE SPEEDOMETER REACHES 35MPH AND THATS IT ANY SUGGESTIONS.


I've had a similar problem with my '94 prizm. I had to replace the instrument cluster about seven or eight years ago because the speedometer quit working. After replacing with a used instrument cluster it's been working fine till now. However, the problem is back again....so I'm looking for another used one. There is definately a weakness in this speedometer design when the mileage on the car gets high. Your problem is different since you replaced both the sensor and the speedometer and it still doesn't work. Chances are, you got a speedometer that didn't work to begin with. I would try another used one.

Odometer stuck speedometer works ok 1992 mercury grand marquis


The only fix is to replace the speedo head. I had a 92 crown vic (same as marquis) and the speeometer shop could not repair it. So, i had to replace it. They give you a sticker to write the present mileage down for reference,and afix it to the drivers door jam.

When does a speedometer stop on harley davison


Since the speeometer is electronic and gets it's "pulses" from the transmission, it stops whenever the transmission stops turning inside. Now, if one got into a situation in which he applied the rear brake hard enough to lock the rear wheel thereby causing the engine to stall, the speeometer would stop at that moment even if the bike didn't. This is my opinion.

How to wire a tach on 05 heritage softail


Locate & route Black lead to ground / 2004-later softail: On the frame strap under the seat directly in front of the battery.

Locate & route the pink lead to Signal / For 2004 & later FXST/C/I The #3 cavity in the connector {39b} on the back of the speedometer. The socket terminal on the signal (pk) lead fits the #3 cavity.

Locate & route the Orange and white lead to power / Ummm.. it's saying for 2004 and later to adapt to the fuse block For earlier [ For 1996 to 2003 softail: locate the power lead (o/w) in the tail lamp pin connector {7a} under the seat behind the right rear corner of he battery.] "here you are looking to run it to a fused line, not directly to power/battery" I hope this helped.

Speedometer not working


rlane104, if you disconnect the wire that hooks up to the sensor but leave the power hooked up. Then turn the key to on and look at the speedometer. If it moves all the way over to the other side and back or some movement, then the speedometer works. If it doesn't, then you have a bad speedometer. Check all your fuses and there should not be an inline fuse. Maybe if its an external or aftermarket, then there might be a fuse in the unit itself. But, recheck all your connections.

I have a 2004 dodge ram 4x4.speedometer stopped working and ck engine light came on 129,000 miles on truck


It's possible that you have a bad spped sensor which is located on the transmisson, this would cause the speeometer to stop working and a ck engine light to go on. You would have to have a diagnostics test done to determine the engine trouble code.
