more info from past owner. While riding it as it overheated and temp light came on the speedo display went blank and and never came back on, check engine light stayed on. Once it cooled down and tried to restart is when he noticed the er-1 code on dash.
Could it be coincidental the meter fried and it overheated at same time? I know a bad meter will throw that code as well. Could the speed sensor got so hot it fried as well?
I see a new meter is only about $250
