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)

Re: Vehicle Speed Sensor replacement
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...

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!
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.
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.
