Digital Dash dead

Postby palfaro » Tue Feb 03, 2015 11:52 pm



Hi everyone, I just bought an aspencade with the digital dash. Rode bike for a couple of weeks. Suddenly the dash info went off. Backlight still working but no neutral light, no speed, tach or gas info. My mechanic was looking for a dimmer but could not find anything. Is there a dimmer for the info on the dash?. Any help appreciated.

First thing I would do is check that there is in fact power getting to the digital dash. There are two four-pin connectors associated with the dash: One has a red wire, the other has a green wire. The red wire should be +12v when the ignition is on, and the green should be ground.
