Hey all,

Having a new issue with my 08 C50.

On my second ride of the season I noticed that none of my gauges were working. No speedo or LCD display at all. Neutral light was working, but that's about it.
Google-fu suggested to check the signal fuse, so I did & it was fine. Signal lights, horn & brake light all work fine too. I read somewhere that they all share the same circuit as the speedo.

I took it to the shop for them to look at, but other than checking the fuses (which I told them I had already done) and one of the plugs they shrugged & suggested I buy a new cluster. Not wanting to go to that length or expense I decided to fiddle around with it this weekend & see if I could get something working.

I removed & disassembled the instrument cluster, and when I plugged everything back in again I had my LCD display back, but the speedometer was still not working,
odometer was showing zero, and it was throwing an "ODO" error code at me. I tried resetting the speedo as shown in this video but no dice.

My google-fu is failing me, as I can't find any reference to an ODO error code for a Boulevard or Volusia.

Anyone else here gone through a similar thing & have any tips on how to fix it?

Thanks!

Having to deal with a bike that does not display the actual mileage will be a colossal pain, especially when you go to sell it. If you swap the cluster you've tampered with the odometer and need to submit paperwork to your BMV. If you try to sell it with a non working odometer, some jurisdictions will not title the bike to the next owner until a working odometer is put in place.

Similarly, My 2005's speedo & cluster malfunctioned frequently, after owning the then new bike for less than a year.
Suzuki replaced the bottom board of the electronics/speedo, and that corrected the problem.
