OK , so last night everything was good. I stopped to get fuel ,shut it off , fueled up , It started fine -but the tach pinned at 13,000 and no info on the lcd screen, just blank but the illumination was on . Everything still woked ( directionals ,high low beam etc..) So rode her home .This morning The duc dealer says i am screwed without the red key. I come home and strip her down and look for a loose wire, mellted wire,anything! Check the fuses all good . I turn the key on it works now, more mileage now and flashing ( code ) and she wont start. What next , The dealer is closed.

Thanks , Dave

Better find the Red Key, without it you may be hosed, from what I've read, without it you cannot read codes or change tuning....

Alright , I didnt put the two fuses back in by the battery, I put them in and She starts and the gauges work as they should. Mileage is also back to what it should be, WTF!

That's great, yet track down the RED KEY, no matter how ugly it may be, sooner or later you will be up an ugly creek, with no paddle except lowering the value of your 749 by $1800.00......

Thanks guys, I am going to try to find the original owner , 2nd , whoever for the red key . If no luck there what about MOTORVEX? I saw the add on flea bay. Send them gauges , ecu , and ignition and they can make a red key. Any body try them yet?
