Question about 1995 Honda Accord
No matter how fast the car is moving the speedometer only registers 19 mph. Also the odometer does not change. I read of another person having the exact same problem on another web site. After many attempts to correct the problem it was determined that the vehicle speed sensor was at fault. I believe this might be the problem with my car. Could anyone give me the location of the VSS on my car. I've looked everwhere under the hood and cannot locate it. Also any other suggestions on the problem would be greatly appreciated.
The speedometer works from a steel sheathed cable that is connected to the drive shat at the rear of the gearbox. The internal braided steel cable rotates inside the sheath connecting the drive shaft to the back of the speedometer. The cable sheath connects to the gearbox casing and the internal cable has a lug that engages with a rotating shaft in the gearbox. The cable connects in a similar way to the back of the speedometer. Your problem is likely to be associated with the cable. It can have become disconnected at either end or, more likely, the internal cable has broken.
Its easy to check out. Find where the cable come through the firewall between the passenger compartment and the engine compartment then follow it down to where it connects to the gearbox. Disconnect it and see if it is broken. Alternatively you can find where it connects to the back of the speedometer and disconnect it there. If it is broken the internal cable will come out of the sheath.
Replacing the cable is easy enough but requires some scrambling around under the dash.
