SPEED SENSOR LOCATION

Post by guitarzan »





Hello,
I am installing a StrobeWise deceleration warning system and need to access the signal coming from the electronic speed sensor. I need to know where the speed sensor is and how to gain access to it? Is it going to be wrapped up so I have to remove tape or something to find it? I sure would appreciate the help.

Thank you
Frank

Didn't know the '94 GL1500 had a speed sensor, , , sounds like something the ECM would control but I have no idea what pin its on, , ,

Sorry I couldn't help more, , , I'll be watching (& learning) though

Speed sensor is a Hall Effect sensor inside the speedometer. Its output is used by the cruise control and the turn signal cancel unit.

Probably the easiest place to access that signal is HERE: (Cruise control unit is under the seat.)
