my speedo started to indicate crazy, numbers then cero, numbers.
cleaned the connector of the sensor, and it was full of water, cleaned it and solved the problems for a couple of weeks, then problems came back, changed the sensor but problems continue


only thing aftermarket is the rear brake rotor that is slightly thinner. stock is 4.99 this one is 4.65, but the disk has some time installed and gave me no problems, before.

Will this affect my traction control?

thanks for your help

If the speed sensor isn't working it'll affect your traction control and your ABS. I thought I read somewhere that it'll go into a safe mode, still looking for that info now. Sensors by the tone rings on the wheels ok?

the problem eludes me, since on the last ride... it will do it but after 20 miles it would go away, or not...

I have an intermittent problem with my dash as well. The tach, gear indicator, warning lights, speedo all come and go. My fuel warning always works and even if the dash is blank or flashing like a Christmas tree, the traction control and ABS brakes still operate. When my speedo is not functioning, it behaves much like yours as it goes flashes anywhere from zero up to my actual speed.

I suspect that you and I both have wiring issues rather than hardware issues. I feel that way because I've swapped ECUs and clusters with another 2013 ABS just like mine and the problems still persisted.

I'm thinking flash mixed with water causing glitch.

Good to hear mpp12!

Scout, I think my ECU must be ok, because I swapped ECUs with another 2013 ABS and there were still problems with my display. However, I'll try re-flashing my ECU this summer to see if that helps.
