Speedometer doesn't ingage until 30mph. Internet search said a 10 minute job with a socket set. Autozone had the speed sensor for $20.00 their reference material also said passenger side of the transmission casing, half way down. There is nothing there, other reference placed it on the differential, but as the ABS sensor. Anyone have any clues?

Use the Phillips screwdriver to loosen the screw in the
intake boot clamp at the throttle body. Slide the intake boot off the
throttle body. Pull the other end of the intake boot off the air filter
Locate the Accord speed sensor at the top of the back side of
the transmission, close to the firewall. It has two 10-mm bolts holding
it in, and an electrical connector at the top. Unplug the electrical
connector by squeezing the clip at the top and sliding it off the speed
Use the ratchet, extension and 10-mm socket to remove the two bolts located on the sides of the speed sensor.
Remove the speed sensor by pulling on it. You may have to twist it back and forth to work it free. If the drive link does not come out with the speed sensor,
remove it from the transmission. The drive link is a very small part
that links the speed sensor with the transmission.
Speed Sensor Installation
Insert the drive link into the new speed sensor. Carefully
place the speed sensor onto the transmission, making sure that the drive
link lines up in the shaft.
Install the two 10-mm bolts and tighten them until they are snug.
Slide the electrical connector back onto the speed sensor until it clicks into place.
Reinstall the intake boot by sliding it over the throttle
body and air filter housing. Tighten the Phillips screw in the clamp at
the throttle body.
Start the Accord and test drive it to verify that the speedometer is working properly.
LEVEL CHECK -manual transmission
The vehicle speed sensor (speedometer gear), which is located on the transaxle, serves as the manual transaxle's dipstick.
Park the car on a level surface, turn the engine OFF and apply the parking brake.
Locate the speedometer cable assembly where it enters the transaxle.
Unplug the electrical connection from the vehicle speed sensor (speedometer gear).
Disconnect the speedometer cable from the speed sensor.
Wipe the area around the speed sensor with a clean rag, then loosen the speed sensor retaining bolt.
Gently pry the speed sensor from the transaxle.

Fig. 2: Location of the manual transaxle's fluid level marks — 1.9L and 2.0L engines
Check the condition of the speed sensor O-ring and replace it if it is damaged.
Check the fluid level on the speed sensor as illustrated.
If the level is low, place a funnel in the speed sensor hole.
Add the specified fluid to the transaxle until the FULL level is reached. Do not overfill the transaxle.
Install the speed sensor and tighten the retaining bolt to 69–104 inch lbs. (8–12 Nm).
Connect the speedometer cable.
Engage the speed sensor electrical connection.
