I have a 1997 flstc heritage softail. My display for trip and odometer is not working. My speedometer and turn signals also are not working. Lights all work. Horn works. Ignition works. Neutral light displays. Is this a fuse or sensor issue?

Probably time for a new battery. But first, check to be sure that water covers the top of the battery plates. Add water if needed.

DeJevu! I thought I answered this already. Anyway, I'll do it again. The first thing I'd try is putting new bulbs in the turn signal lights. Use the proper bulb called for in the books. This is a pretty inexpensive test.

Next, you didn't say whether or not it was both sides or just one side that was not blinking. The turn signals are controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. I'd try to find someone that had a known good unit that would allow me to try the unit to see if that fixed the problem. I say this because the units are expensive. The last one I replaced costs about $150.

Oh yeah, on the Softail, I think the "tilt switch" located in the speedometer is involved in cancelling the turn signals as well. If the switch is stuck in the closed position, it may be cancelling the turn signal as soon as you set it. The switch is not in the circuit for the four way flashers. You'd have to look at a schematic to tell for certain. Sorry, I don't have one for a Softail.

The fork oil is a very specific job needing a manual and a special tool, I don't want to insult anyones mechanical knowledge but if you have never done it before, best to take somewhere else. Engine oil on the other hand is easy, the drain tube to any softail is on the right side by where the frame meets the swing arm, has somekind of plug in it. Start and run bike for a little while, long enough to get it warm but not hot. Remove fill plug and then remove plug in drain line. Using a peice of cardboard or something put in between filter and frame , directing the oil to your drain pan instead of where ever it goes. Put 1 qt oil back in (after everything is reinstalled) start the bike and make sure the oil light goes out, when it does shut bike off and fill to the point that when it is standing upright you get a little oil on the tip of your finger, over filling may result in loss of oil cap from pressure (been there)

if its a cable operated speedo then the cable is probably busted it would be a cable coming out of the back of the speedo and going to the front hub assembly.

Hi Anonymous, as the bikes get newer and more complex so do the electronics. Try going to www.fuelmotousa.com/harleycodes.phml It will walk you through retrieving and clearing trouble codes that might at least point you in the right direction. I would start in the " S " or " SP " mode of the diagnostic menu. Good luck

Have you looked under the seat? That's about the only place on a Softail to put a fuse box. I'm not familiar with this late model.
