It would seem to be a wiring related problem. Check all wires around the speedo and where they go around the head stock. Also, check for poor earth connections.

The signals won't cancel if the speedo isn't working. Is the bike fuel injected, If it is then I would look for a break in the green with yellow trcer wire. if it's carb I would look towards the ignition. did you replace it with oem or with aftermarket. If you installed a Crane or Compufire ign, I've seen those be bad right out of the box.

My speedo meter is not working it is the digital time I have replaced the speedometer itself with a brand-new one but has made no difference no speedometer no mileage recorded can you help please


Does the mileage light up? give you they mileage, like 123,324? If so look to replace the speed sensor. I don't know your vehicle, so I can't tell where it would be. It could be on the transmission or ran threw the ABS system/wheel sensors.

The car could not sense the signal from the sensor that determines engine speed and went into shutdown and limpin. First step is to retrieve the Trouble code and determine what is wrong. Do not drive the car.

Speedometer quit working,possible causes?


Many possible causes

THEORY OF OPERATION
The 2001 electronic speedometer consists of a speed sensor, an odometer reset switch and the speedometer itself. The speed sensor is located on the right side of transmission case below the starter. It is a Hall Effect sensor that is triggered by the gear teeth of 4th gear on the transmission mainshaft. The output from the sensor is a series of pulses that are interpreted by speedometer circuitry to control the position of the speedometer needle and the liquid crystal (LCD) odometer display. The odometer mileage is permanently stored and will not be lost when electrical power is turned off or disconnected. The odometer reset switch allows switching between the odometer and the trip odometer displays. To zero the trip odometer, while having the odometer display visible, press and keep the function switch depressed. The trip odometer mileage will be displayed for 2-3 seconds and then the trip mileage will return to zero miles. The odometer can display six numbers to indicate a maximum of 999999 miles. The trip odometer can display six numbers with a tenth of a mile accuracy for a maximum of 99999.9 miles. Circuitry in the speedometer also uses the sensor input to provide an input to the turn signal canceller. This turn signal canceller input was previously supplied by the reed switch in mechanical speedometers.

DIAGNOSTICS
To enable diagnostic mode depress the odometer reset switch and turn ignition/key switch to ON, to clear codes turn the ignition switch from OFF to ON while holding the reset switch in. Press and release the reset switch to cycle through the codes. Set codes will display as Code d0xSet. Holding the reset switch in will result in Code d0xClr being displayed indicating that the code has been cleared. To return the speedometer to the normal operating state cycle the ignition/key switch.

Remove the seat for testing. Remove the speed sensor and check for accumulation of debris on it and if there is any debris present, clean it away and if there is not debris replace the sensor.

Disconnecting the speed sensor will cause code d02 to set.


ODOMETER, TRIP ODOMETER AND RESET SWITCH TESTING

Turn the ignition ON. Does odometer display consist of the correct numbers?
If YES Press trip reset switch. Does the LCD display toggle between trip and odometer modes? BUT if the odometer display does not consist of the correct numbers replace the speedometer.

If the speedometer does display the correct numbers press the trip reset switch. Does the LCD display toggle between the trip and odometer modes? If No Loosen the trip reset switch boot and then tighten it again until it is snug and toggle the switch again and verify if it toggles between trip and odometer modes? If YES does the trip display consist of correct numbers? If it does STOP here and go to test 2A If No replace the speedometer.

If loosening and retightening the reset switch boot results in okay toggling between the trip and odometer modes the Speedometer is OKAY. If it does not, then remove the rubber boot from the reset switch and toggle it without the rubber cover and if it now toggles between the trip and the odometer modes replace the reset switch boot/cover. If it does not now toggle between the trip and odometer modes place a jumper wire across the leads to the reset switch on speedometer connector. Does the LCD display now toggle between the trip and the odometer modes? If yes replace the reset switch and if No replace the speedometer.

Turn ignition ON. Is speedometer backlighting on? If NO then If speedometer backlighting is not on, check for 9-12 VDC on the O/W wire at connector
[39B]. If the proper voltage is present check for continuity to ground on the BK wire at connector [39B]. If there was not appropriate voltage on the )/W wire at connector [39B] locate and repair an open in the O/W wire.
If there is continuity at the BK wire at connector [39B] replace the speedometer. If there is not locate and repair an open in the BK wire.

If there is backlighting enable diagnostic mode and clear codes. Then recheck for codes. If there are any codes present go to the applicable
code in Speedometer Test 2B (d0x).
If there are no codes set return the speedometer to its normal state, raise the rear wheel from the ground, put the transmission in 5th gear, turn the ignition ON, spin the back tire, enable diagnostic mode and check for codes and if there are any codes set now make repairs to the harness/connections.

Speedo not working properly on toyota mr2


there are shops that can change the mileage in the replacement to match what you have now, the most common cause is the speed sensor on the transmission sending an incorrect signal to the speedometer.

Check to see if there is any back lighting.

Pull the speed sensor from the transmission case and if there are any metal filings on it clean them off and replace it. If there are not filings you may need to replace the sensor. The speedometer head itself or wiring conneftors could be the porblem as well.

The mileage and speedometer are not showing up on my 1994 chevy blazer tahoe LT. Everything else works though. Please help!!! fuses are good.


Im pretty sure the speedometer runs off of a VSS (Vehicle speed Sensor) on the tail shaft of the transmission. Check to make sure the connection is clean and connected properly and maybe replace it. Another thing to check...Where the speed sensor goes into the transfer case. Jack a rear wheel up so you can turn the driveshaft. Have the speed sensor out, and look in the hole at the shaft. There is a magnet, actually looks like several teeth. They must rotate with the shaft. That is the thing that gives the sensor a signal. have a good day !!

Speedometer


You need to find out if your speedometer is cable driven or electronic. If it is cable driven there will be a cable running from your transmission to the back of the speedometer. Sometimes the cables lose their lubrication and break. Usually pretty cheap to replace.

If your speedometer is electronic there is a sensor on your transmission that sends a signal to your speedometer. Either your sensor (called a Vehicle Speed Sensor or VSS) went bad or your speedometer quit working. The sensors are usually inexpensive....the speedometers are NOT! Last one I needed I bought off eBay and purchased one with the lowest miles I could find. If you ever sell the car you have to mark the title that the speedometer is not correct. I usually keep the old speedometer around along with a record of the mileage of the replacement so I can always figure out the cars true mileage if I need to.
