Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic

2 Answers

My speedometer keeps failing as in stops working. Ive replaced it 8 times and the last time I changed it was 16 days ago. Its broken again and I was wondering has anyone else been replacing their speedometer pick up on their Heritage this much? Am I doing something wrong? Its a 2000 FLSTC with over a 100K miles on it.

    Obvious you haven't noticed any descrepancies in the drive. Please describe the "pick Up" Is speedo cable driven or electronic?

Had a similar problem. Turned out to be the voltage regulator was failing and applying to much voltage to the speedo which cuts out above a certain level. Check it and your stator connection; also had a problem with that connector that may have contributed. Replaced the regulator with a new one and have never had the problem since.
Hope this helps.

If your killing speedo pick us that much I would have to say it's the speedo itself killing the pick ups. All you're doing by replacing the pick up is putting a temporary band aid on the real problem There seems to be an internal short in the speedo which keeps frying the pick ups.

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

My eclipse will start and then just die, like its gas is cut off


We just had this and it was a sensor called something like the CAM TIMING SENSOR - which gave the engine bad timing when it tried to get going. The car is great since we got it replaced - but it cost like $360 to get it all diagnosed and replaced.
