1994 accord LX speedometer problem

My friend has asked me to take a look at her speedometer problem on her '94 accord. I have some experience with Hondas--- but all of my Hondas are Preludes from long ago-- a 1980 and a 1988, both of which had speedometer cables. What type of speedometer system do the accords from this era use--- electronic I would imagine. Her speedometer is acting very erratically and sometimes will not work at all for short periods of time. Please advise on what I might be looking at and the basic layout of the speedometer system (Sensors, cables, connectors, etc.) Thank You in advance, Matthew Brown Memphis 2000 Honda civic. not shifting properly and d4 light is on

Speedometer is not working an check engine light is on. What can be the problem?

On Hondas, I have seen this problem of the Check Engine light on when the speedometer did not work. This is a problem with the drive cable not turning. 1. The cable might be broken. 2. If any recent work was done to the car, someone may not have connected the speedometer cable back. This was exactly what happened to me after I was trying to troubleshoot a noise from the speedometer. 3. The cable is not turning due to a probem where it connects to the transmission.

I am looking for a car for my daughter,and found a 94 honda accord ex in great physical condition. We have test drove this car and it drives nicely, but the 'D' light blinks when you put the car in drive...

You are a smart consumer. The flashing D is never good. It is saying the transmission is in need of repair. Newer Hondas also have diagnostic codes you can read with a scanner when D blinks. The 94 Accord has the old OBD-1. Perhaps the dealer could get some information from it with their specialized equipment. In any case, flashing D is almost always expensive, and it is suggested that it not be driven in this condition. Keep looking, lots of good Hondas out there.
Best of luck!

94 accord, the speedometer doesn't work.........

I had a similar problem a few months ago. I changed the speedometer sensor as well as the instrument cluster with no result. Finally I decided to take out my ECU. As soon as I took it apart, I noticed a burnt node. Replaced the ECU and the speedo worked fine. You might try this if tinkering with your cluster doesn't work.
