I have a D21 truck w/V6 5sp vin# jn6hd16s2gw006733. Do I have a speedometer or a sensor? I found a cable located on the passenger side of the trani just below the shifter. It has a gear on the end of it. there are two other sensors located up near the shifter. I am assuming that they are my nutreal switch and my revers switch. HELP

Don't remember when it was done, but there is no cable after a certain year, it went all electronic. if yours does have a cable, in would be connected to the speed sensor in the transmission and through the firewall to the speedometer. if you have a V6 the sensor is located on top of trans to the right of the vehicle.
where the speedometer cable goes into the transmission under the car, when removed from the trans there is a small gear that gets worn out over time.. that little gear or the entire speedometer cable needs to be replaced. An easy and inexpensive fix. I believe the ABS light is on because the computer needs the speed of the car to make its calculations for braking. As long as the speedometer is not working, it cannot do that. So after the speedometer cable issue is fixed, that issue should be fixed as well.
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.

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.

you need a new speed sensor located on the gearbox with 2 size ten bolts holding it on and a 3 pin connection going into it! heres a pic http://www.hondacivicrepairs.com/views/honda-civic-speed-sensor.JPG
You need to find out if your speedometer is cable driven or electronic.
If it is cable driven there will be a cable running from your
transmission to the back of the speedometer. Sometimes the cables lose
their lubrication and break. Usually pretty cheap to replace.
If your speedometer is electronic there is a sensor on your
transmission that sends a signal to your speedometer. Either your
sensor (called a Vehicle Speed Sensor or VSS) went bad or your
speedometer quit working. The sensors are usually inexpensive....the
speedometers are NOT! Last one I needed I bought off eBay and purchased
one with the lowest miles I could find. If you ever sell the car you
have to mark the title that the speedometer is not correct. I usually
keep the old speedometer around along with a record of the mileage of
the replacement so I can always figure out the cars true mileage if I
