Speedometer quit working 05 Firecat??

RPM Works on digital or manual. The Bearings on the drive shaft are good. Sled only has 1000 miles. Would this be in the speedo or would the magnet unit be faulty??? Thanks

When you take the speedo unit off, is it clean on the backside? Dirt might keep it from working right. Another thing to try is to check all your connections and make sure they are clean and lubed up with dielectric grease to keep the terminals from corroding.

check the wire connected to your diamond drive, if its diamond drive hehe. check if your mileage goes up or not, if it goes up it could be the speedo itslef, if it doesnt its probably a sensor or wire or what ARCHINTO said.

i forgot to plug mine back in after changing tracks, mileage stayed at 4978 for a few rides hahaha

good luck :P

If you search on this forum you'll be able to read all sorts of speedometer issues with the Firecats. My '05 F7 is in the shop right now getting the speedo fixed. I bought a new speedometer sensor, part #4639-326 and the mechanics are installing this. Just as you, the tachometer works, but the speedo and odometer were broken. Hopefully that new speed sensor does the trick.

Any suggestions for an 05 Sabercat 700 LX? It has a chaincase case drive instead of the DD. I believe the signal for the speedo is sent from the voltage regulator behind the secondary clutch. Anyone know if this is correct?

You can find the sensor at an arctic cat dealer for $35.00. PN 0630-207 if you have an 07 m8. Hope this helps you. it would be located under drivetrain and break assy.
