I've never had this problem with my 1985 1200 aspencade before , coming home from a 200 mile day ride and I was almost home when my speedometer ( digital ) went to 0 and my trip meter also just froze at the number it was , still on but reading zero , then also noticed my turn signals would not shut down automatically , have to do it manually , are these 2 problems related ? cannot find a fuse problem , please I need guidance ,

stuck on zero

The speedometer/odometer, signal light cancel and radio auto volume are all controlled by the small black control module located at the speedomter drive on the lower left fork. Sometimes the speedo gear itself will fail and consequently the control module is affected and will not work. Also , sometimes the control module will fill with water and stop and can simply be cleaned out ( if you are lucky) . So check the module and the speedo gear . The control module is around $100 to replace if necessary. It is also possible that the wires from the module have come unplugged under the false tank. .......... GM

Yes both are related and it is not a fuse. Itis probably your speedo gearbox on the front axle. Happened to me when I had my 1200LTD.

The innards of the gearbox are made of nylon and over time the ears that turn the sensor will break.

#10 in the diagram

I don't know which part # they use as both are listed for the same part. I got this from http://www.cyclepartsnation.com

That happened to me also but I was lucky. The bolts had backed out and the unit was just hanging by the wire. Put it back on and put in new bolts and good to go.
