    Hi!
    I have a 2003 950 Adventure here and did some rewiring.

    Im currently unsure about the wiring of the speed sensor to its connector in the display unit.

    I have the color
    - 1 black - 2 brown - 3 red on sensor side,
    - 4 yellow/blue - 5 orange/black - 6 brown/black on the display side.

    Which wire goes where? I couldnt read it out perfectly on the manual, there are just pictures of the plugs with numbered pins...

    My guess was:
    black - yellow/blue
    red - orange/black
    brown - brown/black

    Can someone confirm or tell me how its done? :D




    Also side question, whats the right measurement at the TPS throttle closed/fully opened on the 2003 950ADV? Couldnt find that either yet...

    If you don't get any luck I can find the speedo wire colours for you in a couple of days when I'm back home.

    The TPS adjustment is on page 8-11 of the manual. Although the wire colours they quote there might be wrong, I can't remember. Just try pairs of wires on that connector until you find one with a positive voltage that varies as you open the throttle.

    TPS...

    Some manuals have the wrong wire colors. Correct is the check between black and yellow. .06v is the target at idle position.

    alright, thanks for the clarification. i made a plug for my voltmeter to measure the TPS long time ago, but couldnt find the values again!

    but until now,I still need the right wire assignment for the speed sensor. maybe anyone could have a look on the "bare" wires for me - and note for everyone in the future, how they are right? :lol3:photog

    For the notes... speedo sensor:
    The right wiring is:

    red - yellow/blue
    black - orange/black
    brown - brown/black

    Thanks.
