Additionally, although quite rare from my experience, is damage within the speedometer itself. this tends to cause all manner of speedo related issues obviously, including the tell tale light cluster not working

Speedometer disassembled



Circuit board damage inside speedometer

On my 3rd set at 37K. Rain water collects when the bike is on the stand & the left hand indicator display goes first.Unusually when we had a really cold spell early this year the neutral display stopped working for about 40 minutes

I had my instument cluster go out on me last summer when someone at the stealership got overzealous with a wash job. Yeah, they fixed it as I have no time to even deal with it. Just one ofthe things I've found out about the "newer" sportys they put out these days. I purchased a 2016 so that my wrenching time would be reduced with less worries and problems. It is what it is.nativebroncofan
