Hey all,

I have searched through the how-to's and also through the search option ... and i havent found the answer to the question. I purchased a VN Commodore last night and we found out the speedo doesnt work, neither does the Odometer ... is this a common problem in VN's and how do i fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Adam. :w00t:

Try your Transducer It comes out of the side of your box.The wires become hard with age and can break at the transducer.

Also look at the soldered joints on the little circuit board. There are sometimes some dry joints. Also the speedo needle gets stuck, put a little sewing machine oil on it from the back, but usually it gets stuck because of the transducer as said above.

speedotom is the guy you need to talk to. He's an expert in all things cluster related.
