Question about 1994 Honda Accord

Vehicle Speed Sensor replacement

I have a 1994 Honda Accord EX two door with a 2.2 VTEX auto matic trans

I have problems with the speedometer, it works sometimes and sometimes it does not. It bounces between 0 and the speed I am driving. I purchased a Vehicle speed sensor (VSS). The problem is I cannot locate the sensor on the engine. It appears from the crude drawing I have in the Honda manual (from Honda) that it is located near the distributer on the front side of the engine.

The VSS appears to be attached by two small bolts and a three pin electric plug. It also has a drive pin (drive link)

Where is the VSS located.

I cannot replce it if I cannot find it.

    It is right where you suggested -- of course in a difficult spot to get to and well disguised



    thanks

Hi...
The SPEED Sensor on your Honda accord 94.
is located on the Transmission.
About Under the Thermostat housing ( if you follow the lower radiator hose from radiator to engine) you will found the thermostat housing.
Under the thermostat housing you will see on the trans, the sensor is the only one on this side of the trans,

I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya...

1994 Honda Accord automatic; Speedometer/Odometer intermittent


Sounds like the Vehicle Speed Sensor. It is strange that you're not getting a Check Engine Light or a Flashing light on your gauges where the gear selection indicator bulbs are. For the heck of it, check the plug and wires leading to the Speed Sensor. It is on the back of your transmission kind of near/above the firewall motor mount if you need to replace it. Good luck!

My 1997 Honda Accord EX speedometer is not working 95% of the time. Is it the sensor that needs replaced?


Yes, most likely the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor). Not too hard to do. It's on top of your transmission, kind of near the back of it.

I have a 1994 Honda Accord LX sedan and the speedometer just stopped working. My mechanic just put in a transmission that he bought from a junk yard. How do i fix this problem?


I have a 99 accord and my speedometer and odometer did not work. The problem was the VSS vehicle speed sensor. The VSS is located on the transmission. Once I replaced it everything worked fine.

Shifting problem


This sounds like a VSS (vehicle speed sensor) not being read correctly by the computer, or the VSS is inaccurate, erratic, etc. The erratic speedo seems to verify my theory doesn't it???

91 speedometer and miles


I have a 91 Accord. When I purchased it, the speedometer did not work. I replaced the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) and the speedometer started working again. I paid $24 for the sensor on ebay. The local part stores wanted $150. It's an easy fix. It takes about 20 minutes to replace.

Flashing green s on the dash


A green flashing "S" is similar to a check engine light. It is telling you that something in or on your transmission is not functioning correctly, such as the speed sensor or shift control solenoids. If it starts flashing and the speedometer stops working or the transmission shifts weird, take it to a mechanic.
