Question about Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic Motorcycles

1 Answer

Speedo/Odo - cruise stopped working, directional not cancelling.

1996 FLHTCUI 44,000 miles all fuses good. unplugged and wiggled all wires under fairing. disconnected speedo cable shield and spun speedo head with my fingers, needle moves. Cable does not turn in the shield down to the sender gear, nor does it pull out. Square swage looks good. Directional lights work alright but now do not cancel. Anyone got any ideas?

I am not sure if your bike has the VSS or not. The vehicle speed sensor. If so it could be the culprit. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your response. You are right the self cancel in the directionals is run by a speed sensor in the speedo head and signals the lights off."

How to repair cruise control?

Try from Servo control follow connection To I beleive Transmission casing . Look for Burnt wiring / frayed / damaged ...Cruise should maintain speed signal Like speedo cable . Computor management black box / ECM may have direct control so Look for engine bay fuse boxes = 2 under hood . More fuses ++ relays 2 check inside cover is diagram of size + what it controls . A Reset 2 ecm may help by disconnecting Battery - Let sit 30 mins.. Older models + 4 wheel drive Trans has Gear wheel of plastic 2 count revolutions as speedo cable does . If said wheel teeth have worn out then Cruise counts incorrect or fails 2 activate . If you replaced brake pedal Light activation switch then be sure brake Tail lights DO work if not the cruise will fail as brake pedal is part of safety feature to turn it off in emergency disconnect . The signal light Stalk that Turns off L / R signals is Common Item 2 wear out BUT it also controls Turning on cruise or setting ...IF you have Steering wheel on / off / setting control - then issue can be frayed / cut wires due 2 steering wheel movement remove wheel BUT 1 st disconnect Air Bag Fuse then wheel and search connections .....Good Luck ...

2001 Ultra classic 79,000 miles. Cruise control quit on long trip. Radio auto volume stopped. Electric trip odometer inop. No

Hi Dudley, 1992 and later Touring Models, fuel pump fuses and relays will be behind the right side panel, starter and ignition relays will be under the seat behind the battery, everything else will be behind the left side panel to access fuses pull back on the front two locking tabs and slide the cover up. Good luck and have nice day.

2005 Ultra Classic ,Speedo Cuts Out Which In Turn Cuts Out Cruise Control, And Turn Signals Wont Shut Off,And At Idle Bike Engin Will Stall,But Will Start Up . This Is An Intermiten Problem

I believe the turn sigs, speedo and cruise are all controlled in part at least by a module under the fairing. It may need replacement or it could just be a loose wire. Sounds more like a loose wire plug or bundle, if intermittent.

I have a 1999 ford windstar speedometer, odometer does not work, and I found a switch under the master cylinder that is leaking...want to know how to fix it?

do you have cruise control? if so, ford issued a recall on them. leaking master cylinder switch was causing fires even while parked and keys out. the missing speedo and odo is likely a fuse and/or the VSS at the back of the engine on top of the transmission. use a realtime DTC reader to confirm sensor output

Could be a bad cluster. If one is cable driven, and the other electric. You could have a bad speed sensor in the transmission which will make the speedo not work.
