Have you checked for a bad fuse. The odometer only will work if the speedometer is working. Check for voltage going to the speedometer if the fuses check out good. Let me know what you find.

    Have you checked for voltage getting to the speedometer? Get a volt meter if you don't have one and see if you have any at the terminals.

I have a 1200 sportster i have no power to my odometer the lights on it dont work its not showing the milage and the fuses have been replaced what should i do?


It could be the vehicle speed sensor, the ECM or the TSM/TSSM.

The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is powered and monitored
by the Electronic Control Module (ECM). The ECM processes
the vehicle speed signal and transmits this signal to the turn
signal module/turn signal security module (TSM/TSSM) and
speedometer through serial data.
NOTE
The vehicle speed sensor cannot be repaired. Replace the
unit if it fails.

2006 sportster speedo has no power, does not light up, work, nothing. have voltage to connector in back of speedo.


Hi Tim, 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. Next check the connector to the speedometer for correded, broken or loose pins/sockets. If your problems still exist try replacing your ignition relay if your year and model has one. Good luck and have nice day.

Left turn signal an speedometer


There was a recall on the speedometers about 2004.
Some were defective and just quit working. H-D replaced them for free. Not sure about your year/model, but I would contact a dealer or area service rep to see if it falls under the guidelines.

Electrical Problem


It sounds like your ingition switch has failed. This is fairly common if you have a key fop that flaps in the wind. Pretty eash to switch them out. A HD switch is about $60.00 I got an after market that was $20.00.
