Question about Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 2000 FLSTC carbureted. At startup everything is fine. When I accelerate, immediately my speedometer quits working, the odometer goes blank and the check engine light comes on. While driving down the road at any speed I hold in the clutch and start coasting; when the RPMs get low (complete idle) everything starts working again, first the speedometer, then the odometer and finally the check engine light go out. As soon as I let off the clutch everything go out again. After a while, 20 miles or so, things start working again.

    I thought I was going to be getting emails so I just now saw this.

    The speed sensor was recently replaced by the dealer, so in my mind I excluded that as a possibility but maybe I should re-check it. The loose wire / bad wire possibility is that generally a bad ground wire? Any tricks on finding which wire is bad?

I believe the sensor is likely bad or could be loose. Possibly a bad wire to the speed sensor. It is common from what I have seen before.

    The bad wire is usually the ground. You can disconnect a wire on one end then on the other end and test the wires with an ohmmeter. This will tell you if a wire is good or not. You can test power flowing through a wire with a voltmeter.

Hi, Barbara if some or all of your instrument cluster goes dark/blank immediately upon startup or a few minutes later riding down the road the usual suspects are:
1. Blown instrument fuse.
2. A bad ground in the instrument circuit.
3. Faulty wiring before or after the fuse.
4. Faulty wiring or connector between the fuse and the instrument cluster.

Blown Fuse or fried Circuit board. Take to a local AutoZone, Advance, Murray's, O'reillys or a similar part house for them to check the wiring. I'm assuming the van does not use a mechanical Speedometer or Fuel Gauge.

On the plus side, with no speedometer, your indicated odometer mileage does not increase. Just keep your speed down and your tank full. Kidding, just kidding.

The odometer is stuck at 124000. The speedometer works fine. Any ideas?


Odomete and speedometer get thhe data from the same speed sender, that means that the odometer is faulty or stuck.

Odometer is turned by a mechanical gear wheel, which is the likely culprit.
