Default Re: Cyclocomputer keeps reseting itself

My cycle computer can be taken off the handle bar mount exposing the 2 metal contacts. I'm wondering if maybe yours does that then the motor's vibration could be causing breaks in the contacts or in the battery compartment. If not then the interference from the EMF on the spark plug is causing it. One way to find out is to wrap some aluminum foil (copper would be better) around the sensor wire to the computer and ground both ends. The shield would prevent the interference.
