If its a manual transmission, it will not affect the power but you will get occasional check engine lights while running with the sensor unplugged. occasionally the throttle sensor may also cause your idle to run erratically.

My speedometer on 1998 Honda Accord 4 cyl stopped working . If needs to be replaced. How do I fix it.


Hi,
The malfunction of your speedometer might be cause by the speed sensor in the transmission. It might have been disconnected or needs replacement.
You must check that first to your mechanic, before pulling out the meter itself!

1997 honda accord se need to change vss,where


For 1997 Honda Accord 2.2L MFI 4cyl the Vehicle Speed Sensor - Location is located mounted on transmission.

OPERATION
The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is a magnetic pick-up sensor that sends a signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and the speedometer. The sensor measures the rotation of the output shaft on the transaxle and sends an AC voltage signal to the PCM that determines the corresponding vehicle speed.



TESTING
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disengage the wiring harness connector from the VSS.
  3. Using a Digital Volt-Ohmmeter (DVOM), measure the resistance (ohmmeter function) between the sensor terminals. If the resistance is 190-250 ohms, the sensor is okay.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the three terminal connector from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS).
  3. Remove the fasteners that secure the VSS to the transaxle housing assembly.
  4. Remove the VSS.
To install:
  1. Install the VSS.
  2. Install the mounting bolts.
  3. Connect the three terminal connector to the sensor.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.
Hope helps (remember rated this).

Speedometer works intermittently


hi, sounds like the vehicle speed sensor mounted on the transmission is going bad or loosing signal. generally, honda speedometers work for life, i've only ever replaced one. now, this is a split year so it may have just a cable going to the transmission instead of an electronic sensor. if the cable is loose, this may also cause this issue. you should probably have a professional shop take a look as the speedometer cable/sensor is very buried in the back of the engine compartment under the air intake hose and behind the starter. also, if there is a check engine light on when the speedo stops working, this should be an easy diagnostic for a technician to do, it would likely be the speed sensor causing this engine light.

Speed sensor


The step by step procedure is given below

  1. Park your Honda Accord on a level surface, make sure the ignition is off, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller.
  2. Raise the vehicle on the side of the wheel speed sensor's location. Remove the wheel and tire assemblies.
  3. Disconnect the sensor harness connector. At the connector end, remove the grommets, clips or retainers in order to detach the harness. Take note of where these connect in order to install the new sensor correctly.
  4. Unscrew the speed sensor mounting bolt and remove the sensor from the vehicle.
  5. Obtain the new speed sensor and install it in the differential housing, with the retaining bolt loosely tightened.
  6. Use the white line on the wires as a guide and route the wiring harness without twists or crimps. Then torque the mounting bolt to 7.2 foot pounds (9.8 Nm).
  7. Start at the sensor end and, working your way to the connector end, attach all the clips, retainers and grommets as observed during removal. Connect the sensor wire.
  8. Lower the vehicle safely and reconnect the negative battery cable. Refer to your owner's manual to perform an ABS system check to confirm that you installed the sensor properly.
