Hi. My speedometer and odometer stopped working and my signals don't self cancel. Could my speed sensor be bad. I cleaned it off still nothing. 2004 fatboy carbureted. Im hoping its not the speedo. Btw previous to this happening the positive terminal hit a bare spot on a wire. I replaced the damaged part of the wire. The bike starts and runs fine. Only code i had was P1010 and U1097. Thanks

Speed sensor or fuse. Read your post from yesterday.

Speed sensor first for sure. I had the exact same problems, speed sensor was chewed up by rats. (Not that yours is). Mine is an 04 Road King Classic.

ok. fuses are good (only know about the ones in the block) cleaned speed sensor. nothing. I bought a new one. the trick is where is the connection. I'm guessing I need to take off the splash guard in front of the rear wheel to get at it and should I disconnect the battery ground wire first? thanks

The sensor connect is behind the splash guard, no need to disconnect the battery.
It's a triangle 3 pin connector.

Well I changed the speed sensor (not easy at all Topherloaf) and everything's working great now. Took her out for a ride last night. BTW it was 48 degrees last night in Windsor. It was AWESOME to have her running great again. Thanks for the help
