Speedometer stops working

Postby nlangend » Fri Jul 25, 2014 5:57 am



I have a 2003 gl1800 with a 123,000 mi. Intermittently the speedometer stops working, the cruise control cuts out and the turn signals won't self cancel. Then the F1 light comes on. Sometimes it starts working again while riding other times it wont work until it is shut off and restarted. Any ideas?

Had that problem with my 06. It gave a FI code 11. That's the VS sensor. My problem was intermittent and it turned out to be a bad connection. The sensor is mounted on the right side of the engine and is a pain in the a.. to get to.

I have a 2007 with the speedo intermittently stops working, the cruise control kicks out. No MIL light comes on. there is no consistency to it, bumps or anything don't make a difference makes a difference. all gauges remain working normal. turn signals won't cancel when this happens, bike runs well :(

I found the problem after testing the speed sensor and it was OK so I checked connections and found a loose plug. Put it bad together and everything works well
