I suggest you check all the instrument panel grounds. You will need a factory wiring digrams fo rthis, so try and find a used factopry repair manual on eBay is my suggestion as fixya has no wiring dioragrams or repair manuals on file for this car
The speedometer sensors on these cars can go bad sometimes and often, and also low power steering fluid can effect their readings. Check your power steering fluid level and see if that is the cause, If not, the sensor is probably worn out a bit.
Your 1991 model Accord has automatic front retracting shoulder belts and, more than likely, the power retractor motor has gone bad on the passenger side front. If the shoulder seat belt is not in the retracted position, up close against the seat, when the car is running, the seat belt light will stay lit on your dash. Have the seat belt motor inspected and replaced if necessary.
You need a new transmission computer. They are a very common failure part, google: "honda tcm". It is located under the front passenger's floor board. Buy a new one off ebay or a rebuilder, not used, they are all bad.
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.
Remove the VSS again and reach into the hole the VSS goes into with your finger. You want to use your finger to ensure that the plastic gear (inside the transaxle) is not damaged or missing teeth. Also check the plastic gear on the VSS. If either of these gears have damaged teeth, your VSS won't turn, hence no speedometer or odometer function.
