  1. Just to update above- I can now also reprogram mileage to 942 miles and 109 hours, if that is closer to your original speedometer
  2. For those that have been pulling hair out- It took me a month to figure this out, but I am glad to report that I have figured out how to repair my 2004 450ES Speedometer If you have a Honda Foreman 02-04 450 ES model ( 4 indicator lights on top of meter) or a Honda Foreman 99-00 450 ES model ( 3 indicator lights on top of meter) or aOnda Rancher 00-03 TRX350ES and your display: - Is Blank - does not show the gear indicator spot at all (not the gear or --) but the backwards "L" that goes around the gear position - its just blank -your miles and hours have reverted to zeros or all 9"s and possibly now shows KM now instead of Miles -your speed shown seems to have almost doubled (possibly KMs per hour even thought it shows Miles) What has happened is your EEPROM chip on motherboard has lost the programming due to dead battery for a LONG time or an electrical malfunction etc... I have borrowed a friends speedometer (a trusting friend) removed the chip from his, copied the data and put it on mine and it reads perfect now. I can repair your speedometer it will have 1851 miles and 317.2 hours on it as that is the only copy I have for the 02-04 Foreman 450ES I can also do 99-2000 450ES speedometers (3 indicator lights on top of meter) but will have to double-check check on the mileage/hours copy I have and let you know to see if you want that I can also do TRX500FM and FE meters and the older Rancher 350ES meters as well but it has to have the above symptoms and not water damaged-caught on fire, cracked lcd, etc.... If you have one you want repaired just send to me (just the board with LCD) I can repair it for you for $45.00 or barter if you have a second bad meter for parts Shipping would be 4 - $5.00 for First Class with tracking and I will pay return shipping I will confirm and send pictures to you as well to show a working completed repair on your display If there is heavy water corrosion, rust and rot damage etc.. its probably not repairable but I can try if you want -no fix-no pay If you PM me or whatever we can work it out I am easy and like you all I am always fiddling/learning with wheelers I think you will be happy and you will have more hair -mine is filling back in................... Message me if interested I am now also doing burned out screen repair if your screen has become unreadable due to UV sunburn damage from the sun It will appear burned or melted. The cost is 45.00 with same or next day turnaround Will do partial barter if you have a second speedometer for parts PM me if interested Before and after pictures below
