SOURCE: speedometer doens't work

Are both out of the same year? Are they both mechanical or electric? Sounds like if they are electric, the sensor is not reading. If it is mechanical, you don't have the speedometer cable hooked up correctly.

SOURCE: 96 Accord VSS or Speedometer Head?

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.

SOURCE: my speedometer doesnt work in my 93 honda accord LX

it could possibly be a wiring problem but your best bet is to just get a different speedometer and hook it up.

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

96 honda accord speed sensor not working


I guess you mean the speedometer isnt working? It could be a couple of things. 1. the actual speedometer cable is broke. If electronic it is probly your VSS. typically located on the trans towards the output shaft. You will need to ohm it out and check against spec.

Speedometer stuck at 20 miles an hour?


My 96 did the same thing. The speed sensor is and was fine -- the problem is an open circuit in the wires inside the gauge itself.

The Chilton's manual has pretty good instructions on how to replace the instrument cluster. You can buy just the speedometer gauge, or an entire instrument cluster for $100 or so on eBay. Just be sure you get a cluster that matches your model and trim line -- the LX and DX have different clusters, and of course the automatic and the 5-speed are different as well.


Do be sure to disconnect the battery before you begin the project, as there's a (slim) chance you can discharge the airbags if you don't

Speedometer doesnt work or bounces causing car to studder


On my 96 the PSOM module went bad. That is located on the back of the instrument cluster. Mine is analog not digital. What was happening was that the PSOM (Programable Speedometer Odometer Module) would mess up and the speedometer would jump all over the place. The tranmission is electronic and the computer would adjust and shift depending on the speed reported by the speedometer. The van would **** and shake. At slower speeds it was much better. I changed the speed sensor first without success. Changed the instument cluster and all was well.
