Default 99 V92C speedo problem..

Hello all, I am having problems with my set button not changing anything on the LCD screen. Mode works fine but can't reset trip, time, or lights. I bought a used switch and it did not help any. Is there any way to check anything. It has the green turn signals so that should mean it has been replaced, correct?

Thanks for any help..

Sorry no one has answered your question. I have had problems with this on my 2005 V92TC as well... Today I was able to get something working while riding, but not to the point where I could set my clock correctly...

THEN... when I went out for a second ride, I noticed my speedo was at 60 when sitting in my drive way... 60 is the new zero... it changed to 40 being the new zero, now it goes down to zero but will only read as high as 30... Strange.

A few times every year, I spray electrical cleaner through the thumb switch openings to get it to the inside. Since doing that on my 2002, they've worked fine. Some folks use WD-40 instead of cleaner.

The other problem - erratic speedo gauge - might be a bad speed sensor. I had the same kind of problem a couple years ago and it cleared up after replacing the speed sensor. It's an easy fix.

I will try the electronic spray. It's odd that 2 different switches ar doing the same thing.

Yea, those contracts have been known to become corroded.

Also, and its probably obvious but you do have to hold that reset button for about a 4 count for it to respond.....at least on my 99.

EDIT: Yes, the green turn signals is the updated speedo.

I have opened up and removed the switch housing to clean mine. Inside you'll see the switch board with a tiny scew holding it in place. Removing the screw the switch can be pulled away. You'll see it has a spring on it. I used a match pack sticker cut to a narrow size and insert between the spring. Sanded the contact by inserting it and closing / pressing the switch. Flip it and do the other contact. Then wash it with contact cleaner. Reassemble.
You can also take a paper clip and short the two wires together on the switch board before doing this to ensure that the reset is happening on the MFD. This proves the switch contacts are dirty.

That is a great idea, I will try to short it out and test it first for sure. Thanks for the idea.

the cleaning of the contacts took care of the problem for sure. Thanks for all of the help. I was thinking I was having trouble with the speedometer.
