Question about 1994 Acura Legend

1 Answer

Follow up question on my 1994 Acura Legend Speed Sensor

Is it possible that a bad/ wrong VVS would cause the speed odomiter to show the 10 miles too fast?

I have driven this car for 215k miles it was never off before.

The mechanic who installed it says the vvs wouldnt cause the speed to be off. He thinks something else is causing it and the vvs is being effected by that ie bigger tires...

I know the tires are the correct size!!!

No that is not likely, if the VSS was doing this the transmission would not shift correctly, I am sure the issue is with the speedometer head, they can be repaired, you don't have to buy a new one, get the phone number of an authorized repair station form your local dealer.

1994 acura legendwhere is sensor located

The speed sensor is in front of the oil filter. There is one 10mm bolt holding onto the differential and one wiring harness that needs to be unclipped. You will have two hoses coming from your power steering pump and reservoir. You need to crimp these somehow. I used some crimps from harbor freight tools made specifically to crimp hoses. Take your time. Do not force the sensor out. Just wiggle it side to side and it will pull out. Don't let anything get into the differential or you're gonna have a bad day. Installation is in reverse order. Hope that helps.

My 1994 acura legend ac only works if i turn it on full blast

High speed only is caused bu a defective blower motor speed control solid state resistor. The resistor is located in the air ducting (for cooling) next to the blower motor under the dash on the passenger side of the car. Remove the lower dash panel to access the part. See picture below of resistor.
Cost for part is about $200.00

92 Acura Legend with 232000 miles has an odometer that works for a whilethen stops working for a while. All other gauges work fine. What could be causing the this problem.

The connector in the back of the gauge could have a bent pin or bad connection to operate the odometer, or the odometer signal is bad from the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor).

Most likely your magnetic speed pick up failed. It is redundant, so the car will still drive. Should get it fixed though.

hi frank just sent you an e-mail explaining the problem you are having there are a few problems that would cause the problem low fliuld level clutchs slipping low pump prussure torque converters locking clutch failing solenoids faulty but if no conversions have been done on the final drive and it was not doing this before keep it simple check the vss on a ohm meter to see if its within tolerance or just replace it with one that you know is correct for your car make sure all the connections on the sensor are making a good contact check the engines ground as the slightest resistance is all it takes but as i said if it was ok before you can can bet 99 out of 100 it is something the mechanic has done them odds are in your favour best of luck paul
