    I have an 03 springer heratige. Last time I rode no issues(last week). Yesterday I went for a ride and my speedo and odometer quite. The lights come on and the speedo flickers when I turn on the ignition but it doesn't register when I go and the odometer shows milage but doesn't increment.

    Any ideas?

I had the same problem with my 2000 Electra Glide Ultra Classic. Changing sensors didn't help and I eventually took it to the dealership where they found a crimped wire from the speedo in the wiring harness that runs from the intstrument panel down and under the frame. It cost $150.00 to find that out. The mechanic told me it is a fairly common problem caused by turning the front wheel to its maximum left and right too much. The wires are not long enough and eventually either pull apart inside the insulation (thats what mine did) or pull loose from their connection. Where I store my bike requires me to "wiggle" it in and out of its space and that requires lots of turning and backing which caused it. Now that has been a year ago and I now have the problem of riding down the highway and everything shutting down for no apparent reason and with no warning. Could be a major problem in traffic some day. The lean sensor sounds like something to check into. Too much electronics now for the average rider to decipher and too easy for something to cause a problem. Good luck!

Had same problem with my -03 Deuce. There's a magnetic speed senson on top of transmission, secured by one allen bolt. First, check the sensor for metal shavings, the magnet is pretty strong and shavings can interfere the speedo. In my case there was no shavings, so I bought a new sensor, that fixed the problem.

This model has an electronic speedo, so check the wires and connections for the speedo. Also check for any inline fuses or relays that may have blown.

Check your alternator. Or the Alternator belt.
Sounds like you basically used up the rest of your charge in the battery after the alternator went out.
let me know.

On the new bikes, the speed and signal are in one circuit, and on some the horn is in there too. This is most likely going to be the fuse or relay for this circuit. I don't know their exact location, but your local dealership should be able to tell you. If the fuse and relay are good, then you're going to have a short in the wiring, probably a bare wire or a loose/broken ground. Rare, but occasionally, a switch on the controls will hang up and cause this also. Start with the fuse and relay, then go to the wiring and switches, and let me know.
