    Shimano Flight Deck Issue

    Hi
    I have a Flight Deck 6501 and now a new 6502 head. I'm having the same issue with both.
    Issue - Distance, max speed, avg speed all don't work.
    Speedometer, Odometer, gear indicator, speed, clock, stop watch all work.
    Sensor is wired not wireless.
    A&B button on shifters and head all work.

    I changed the batteries in the 6501 head...when that didn't fix it I bought a new 6502 head.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Jim

    As I posted in another thread I came to detest my 6502 flight deck. Never could get it to work right, and with the buttons on the hoods I was forever accidentally stopping or resetting it. Sorry to be a downer. I've been much happier with a $25 Sigma wired unit.

    ... sometimes the buttons under the hoods get cloggy and a cleaning with an electronics approved solvent (available at Radio Shack at least) might help... When the buttons clog, the computer will give wonky readings but is not actually malfunctioning... but getting the wrong signals!

    Thanks Akirasho I will give that a try. Fireform sorry you had so much trouble with your 6502. I had a 6501 for probably 8 years with little to no troubles.
