My '14 model is doing this in 6th gear. Do you reckon the dry solder joints you found could be repaired?So I got bored the other day and decided to dissect the failed NPS. I removed the rubber coating on the back side of the sensor to find three failed solder connections. I guess it was only a matter of time before I lost another gear.
It's not the Japanese but the Chinese who never knew how to solder in the first place.I figured out why the transmission number display fails. The Japanese have forgotten how to solder. Inside the sensor, the wires must be soldered to the pads. Instead, there's a piece of shit. How to fix? Remove the sealant on the sensor, take a soldering iron and solder every wire in its place. After that, fill the sensor with sealant, put in place and then wind the road on the wheels.
The sand paper or the like did not help mine on not showing 6th gear ! jfyiOn my last MT I found on one ride that the gear position numbers were not showing up on the display panel. Quite disturbing in heavy traffic, but next time out all was well. Help from this Forum was forthcoming that the solution - had it persisted - is simply to access the part shown on post #72 above by removing the front chain sprocket, and the part is found behind it. Suggestion was to simply rub over the face (as above) of the part with some not-too-aggressive wet-and-dry or emery paper to clean-up the surfaces, and all will be well. I didn't do this as the problem only occurred once, but I report the info here for general guidance: it may save having to buy a new part.
