This is for my friend.

He has a 2005 Centurion Lightning C4.

Speedometer works 5% of the time. The other 95% it shows zero MPH. Has the triple sensor pickup that does speed, water temp, and depth. Water temp and depth work 100% of the time.

Check where the wires connect under the dash but not behind instrument cluster.

Any pointers?

Thanks in advance.

Most likely that paddle wheel sensor has gone bad

I appreciate the response.

I didn't go to centurioncrew.com as I didn't really see this as a centurion specific issue. Was hoping to get as many responses as possible. =)

So, I'm guessing that if it's the paddle wheel sensor, the entire deal needs to be replaced (speed,water,temp). And possibly the entire run of cabling that goes to the dash?

I went and got the part number. It's an Airmar intelligent tri part# 20-435-01. Does anyone know anything about this sensor or where to buy one? Possibly how to test it?

The obvious would be your Centurion dealer
Short of that

Dan, Ive been through this. replace your paddle wheel. A simple do it yourself project, or pay a fortune at the dealers and walk a little funny after that experience.

After getting it fixed, I recommend pulling the sensor out so you dont burn it up as your haulin down the road. or chipped from a rock being flipped up by wheels. Just remember to put it back in when your launching next time out.
