Factory Speedo on an 08 - questions

I installed the factory speedo in my 08 Teryx. The fuel level light is flashing. Is there a way to make it stop? What are the red and green wires for? The harness seems to make every thing work but the fuel gauge so thats what I was assuming they were for, but I know Ass-U-Me means.

Also could you install the fuel tank gauge from say a 2005 Brute Force 750 and get a fuel reading? They were carbed models too.

You have an 09 dash and your blue wire is looking for a signal from the tank sender. The red wire runs to the light switch and provides power to the taillights. Green is to the parking brake position switch.

PM me if you are looking for a Service Manual.

No blue wire. Only red and green and the big harness plug in.

I may have an 09 Speedo though. I have a call into the dealer to confirm.

Thanks

The display just has a plug in right, no actual harness of any type? Then you have the machines harness? So if you are flashing that light I was just guessing you may have 09 display.

I talked to the dealers parts guy. He gave me an 09 because I ordered all the 09 upgrades that were listed on the site (Thanks guys). He has now ordered me an 08 one and I'll switch them this weekend.

Hood off again, but at least the roll cage is off still so its not too much work.

Thanks Sleepy.

No problem. Although I would like to try to put in an 09 display. Might even be able to make fuel gauge work

I wondered if a carbed Brute Force Fuel speedo and fuel gauge say from 2005 would it work in an 08 Teryx? Anyone part out a older Brute Force?

If you don't want the recessed dash like they come stock then you can snap the display in from the front... Little force and it will push in and stay just fine. Also this helps if you ever need to get behind there because a wire came loose on a switch because you can just pop it out and reach your hand back there as well.

The 2005 Brute Force one may not work as it has the 4x4 actuator in it (from tech at dealer).
I got a PM that said it will work. Now to figure out if the fuel gauge will work.
