Question about 1997 Honda Odyssey
My speedometer is skipping around. It used to do it at @ 60 MPH, but now does it more and sometimes doesn't move at all. Is there a cheep, simple solution for this?
Sorry but the solution for this may be a bit on the big dollar side, 1st have the system scanned to see if the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) is working correctly, it is the source of the signal that gives you the speed of the van, if that is ok then more than likely the electronic speedometer is defective, it must be removed from the car and sent out for rebuilding.

The "needle at 20MPH" is a sure-fire indicator -- it's the speedometer head. This is a common problem in this year.
I haven't found a fix other than replacing the speedometer head, sorry.

I I recently went to a government speed awareness workshop (naughty boy!) and asked why all the cars I have recently driven (Vaux Zafira, Vectra, Astra, Honda Accord, Peugeot 106) were indicating a higher speed than my sat-nav. The answer they gave was that car manufacturers will always do this to err on the side of caution for boot-heavy drivers or drivers who neglect to check tyre pressures, so that in a court case they have one less thing to worry about. All these cars indicated about 5-10% over.
