most old cars have a speedo cable.
is the odometer dead too. (we need that answer now)
there are 3 class evolutionary systems.
electric sender to cluster
and sender to PCM and PCM drives cluster.
but honda does this on diffr, dates than most cars. (i learned)
so lets do that. we login to alldata.com and look , so can you at any time,
once a month i do random cars.
what engine, sometimes this varies by engine, and trans.
neither stated so Ill toss coin each time.
has electronic (hall) speed sensor VSS and runs
engine, cruise. odometer and cluster.
the 96 has no speedo cable, and works in modern mode, very advance for this time
also any scan tool on earth fits the PCM scan port
and if VSS is dead, it tells you that with a DTC , vss dead.
saving all that work wondering why it dont work.
PCM must see it work
if only cluster fails, and both speedo and odometer then its bad.
if only speedo fails but not odometer , then speedo meter is bad.
its that easy.
I have a 91 Accord. The speedometer started going wild, 30 mph. 75 mph and I was at a stop finally quit working and the S light came on. I finally changed the speedo sensor and the S light went off...Check engine light was also on, read on a forum that the speedo sensor does more than control your speedometer, maybe that your trans is not getting the info it needs to shift.....
Honda did have a problem with some of their 5 speed manuals. 5th gear bounces out after you have shifted or when you accelerate ?
Either the snchros are bad and are not allowing the gears to seat, or a gear is bad.
You will have to find a qualified reliable auto center to do the repairs.
Please let me know what you find.
More likely to be the speedo drive in the transmission or a faulty speed sensor that is electronic i would be guessing here as 98 was the change over year for civic so it depends which transmission is fitted. Don't rip the dash to pieces just yet as i'm guessing this will just create more trouble. Steve Baldam in the UK
The only H15B I can find on the internet is a Japanese made piece of construction equipment. The proper motor for your civic would be: KA4AT - 4 cylinder Auto transmission, 49 states. KL4AT - 4 cylinder Auto Trans. California KA5MT - 4 Cylinder 5 speed manual trans 49 states KL5MT - 4 cylinder 5 speed manual trans. California. The CA versions have more stringent emission standards than the other 49 states. The Honda engine #'s I've listed are stamped on the engine block. As u face the engine compartment standing in front of the car, the # should be next to a rubber plug (square shape) that is removed to time the engine, so look there for some ID.
