Default Flow Speedo stopped working

Hi guys, I have a flow Speedo in my 4wd buggy, doing practice a few weeks ago the car ran fine, it then stopped, thought lipo cut out had triggered. Checked the car over last weekend to find the switch wires had come off the switch. Removed the switch and connected the wires together, the Speedo won't switch on. Has any body got any ideas what could be wrong? My initial thoughts are the Bec has failed. Thanks in advance.

Try cutting a little bit of the wire off and resolder again the two wires together as it should work.

The Flow has a fail safe where if the switch comes off it doesn't turn off, by connecting the wires you are essentially hard-wiring it into the off position.

Just separate the wires and make sure they don't touch and it should be back to working fine.
