Question about 1996 Honda Civic
THE SPEEDOMETER WELL CUT ON/OFF IREGULARY IT MOSTLY STAYS OFF BUT IT WELL OCATIONALLY KICK ON I THINK IT MIGHT BE SOMETHING LOOSE
The 1996 Honda Civic does not have a traditional manual Speedometer cable that would require tightening. The speedometer is electronically controlled by a speed sensor located on the transmission. There is a wire that goes from that sensor to the speedometer in the instrument cluster. Either you have a short in the wire or you may have a bad connector either on the back of the cluster or at the transmission. Scanning your car woudl let you know what is happening, especially if you get a P0501 - which is for the speed sensor.

I believe those have a speedometer cable, just have that tightened up and it should work fine. Good luck!
