Question about 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic

1 Answer

Yesterday my 2002 1100 VSX while crusing around 60 mph, lost all power, off and on a few times, speedo, lights, and power all ceased. I never had any problems before. This happened after an oil change at my local dealer. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Check the battery terminals, clean and tight? Check the fuses with a multimeter. Check all wire plug-in connections, including the switch and inside the headlight housing. As you are checking, look for loose connections, dirty and corroded connections and abraded wires. This shouldn't have anything to do with the oil change unless the shop is drumming up additional service work. Ya never know...

Yesterday i bought a 2007 derbi drd pro 50. the bike itself runs perfectly but it has a number of electic faults and im not sure what to do. my indicators just glow orange and get brighter when i rev...


There is a pickup coil inside the flywheel that powers the indicators and lights. At low rpm not much power is generated so the lights are dim. Increase the rpm's and more power is generated thus brightening the lights. This is normal on a small bike especially since it has a small battery. How old is the battery? They are only good for about two years. This could be the problem on the starter, weak battery. Also, check the fuses with a multimeter. A blown fuse will kill a starter every time. The speedo problem sounds like a crossed wire connection.

Speedometer on 1999 maxima wrong, faster you go the farther off. approx. 20 mph faster at 60 mph. replaced vss.


do you have aftermarket wheel on the car?? bigger wheels can cause speed signal failure resulting in speedo acting up. different size tires will have different circumference causing speedo issues.

Tell the dealership uhugh. if the check engine light comes on, there is an error code which gets stored in the computer. on the nicer vehicles (like yours)it stores vehicle information at the time when the error occured....eg battery voltage, rpm, speed, temperature, rpm etc. you need the find out what the error code is. that would give you an idea on where to start looking

hope this helps

It may be that the speedo cable has come loose at 1 end and will need to be tightened back up. Sorry but not sure where ends are attached on your car.

The speedo is electronic and has failed, you will need to have it repaired by an authorized GM repair shop that does GM electronics, this is not the dealer, they will send it out and charge 2X, send it out for repair yourself, bypass the dealer.

Do you have less than 80K miles on the Escalade? Check out www.speedometersettlement.com if so. Mine started having issues at 56k & I'm expecting full reimbursement from the class action laqsuit.
