    On my to work the other day and my speedometer went basically, red line and back. Then the check engine light popped on for about 20 seconds. After that everything went back to normal. Ride home, no problems. Is this just a fluke or is this a start of an electrical problem or a sensor problem or the speedometer.



    Any help would be appreciated,
    Thanks, classic03

    Did it throw any codes? Refer to the self help section for retrieving codes.

    I agree, check for codes, thats the first place to start. Then check connections, starting at the dash and work your way backwards.

    Would something like debris covering the CPS for a moment give this type of problem?

    Being it's a magnetic sensor, it's very possible.

    If it's a momentary event would it trigger a code?
