Sounds like one of two things: the head unit needs to pair up with the sensor again; or the battery in the sensor is dead. Here is a manual in PDF form for the process of setting up the computer:

What year my bicycle is?

your best bet is to take it to a Gary Fisher or Trek dealer (Trek owns Gary Fisher, Bontrager and Klien) They should be able to quickly tell you what year it is.

My service engine soon light is on and it reads that the engine speed signal circuit is the problem, what should I do!

This is normally caused by the Crank Sensor. The Engine Speed signal is given by the Crank sensor, not the vehicle speed sensor. Most people get confused and replace the speed sensor instead.

So to resolve your problem you will need to replace the crank sensor. The engine speed sensor code is always related to the crank sensor failure.

Thanks Jay!

Hi My bike has recently been serviced and now the computer won't recognise any distance travelled. The sensor is all in line etc and the display is fine...any suggestions?

Below is the answer from Cat Eye's website. 9 times out of 10 the magnet has moved either up the spoke or the front wheel was put on with the magnet on the opposite side from the sensor. After that the sensor could of moved outboard a cm or 2 from the magnet. Then start with the battery tests as outlined below. Remember with a wireless model you have two batteries, one in the computer and one in the transmitter.

From Cat Eye's website

How do I get my computer head unit to register a signal with the sensor?
If you computer head unit does not pick up a signal or does not seem to "communicate" with the sensor - check the following:

First, make sure the "AT" icon or "AUTO" is displayed on the screen (computer is in auto-timer mode, not manual stop/start mode).

Second, make sure the magnet is passing within 2-3 mm of the mark on the sensor (on the fork blade or chainstay, depending on model).

If neither help restore a consistent signal, then it could be either a low battery or a damaged wiring (Bracket/Sensor) kit.

Even if the LCD display is clear and bright, the battery may be too low to transmit a signal from the sensor to the computer head unit.

Next, with a fresh battery installed, try performing a manual restart operation to bring the LCD display back to life. Do this by either 1. pressing both buttons (Mode and Set on back) OR 2. all three buttons (Mode, Start/Stop, and small Set button on back) at once and then releasing all three OR 3. by pressing the AC (all-clear) button if your computer has one. This should bring the display back to life, and the unit can now be re-calibrated for your bike. See if consistent signal is re-established.

Finally, If that does not help, take a paper clip and bridge the 2 diagonally opposed metal contacts on the back of the computer head unit. If random information appears in the current speed display (upper portion of screen) while bridging the contacts, then the computer head unit is fine and the problem lies with the bracket/sensor kit. It may be stretched or damaged just enough to interrupt the signal transmission, even if not visibly so. If that is the case, please visit our small parts site to purchase the appropriate replacement sensor kit.

SIGMA BC509 trip timer problem

No problem, what it is doing is recording actual pedaling time. Say you go out for a twenty mile ride and take two rest stops. You were gone for lets say from 12:30pm to 3pm, 2.5 hours total, but trip time shows 2hrs10min. If you took two breaks of 10min each, there's the difference. My Bontrager computer counts trip time based off input from the speed sensor, if I'm not moving it doesn't count trip time. I beleive that is what is happening.

See above chart
This sensor detects the rotation speed of the input turbine. By comparing the input turbine speed signal (NT) and the counter gear speed sensor signal (NC), the ECM detects the shift timing of the gears and appropriately controls the engine torque and hydraulic pressure in response to various conditions, thus performing smooth gear shifting.

When using my garmin to track exercise while on my stationary trainer, the Garmin does not record any speed or distance. I do have the cadense sensor installed and all of this seems to work fine when using...

The garmin works off of a GPS signal. If you are not moving, the GPS signal doesn't pick up any movement . . . .because you are not really moving. m Therefore, the speed and distance is nil.

Computer is not picking up wireless signal from sensor. I have tried moving it closer, as well as adjusting the angle of the computer and even replacing sensor battery. Any suggestions on what to do next?

Try replacing the computer sensor battery also, i have had a similar problem -this seemed to fix it for a short period?? Now mine still drops out (cadence and speed) for 2-6seconds at a time
