94 accord ex 5spd problems with speedo.&dash lights

I got my accord last april and since then the speeodometer only works sometimes most of the time not working at all and staying at 0. This has become a bigger issue because about 2 months ago the car has stopped registering miles when the speedometer stops working. The cruise control never works even when the speedometer does work. About 4 months ago the dash lights stopped working also . when i turn on my headlights at night i dont see anything on the dashboard. The rheostat is also all the way up eliminating that problem. fuses are good and tailights work fine. i have done alot of research and everyone suggests that it is the vss. and for the lights they suggest that it may be blown bulbs. i have researched and there are apparently 4 bulbs behind the guage cluster so i doubt they all went out at the same exact time. also the lights for the a.c. knobs werent working when i got the car and not to long ago they started working but have since stopped working again. please post some suggestions

There are two reasonable explanations for this:
vehicle speed sensor is faulty and speedo cable is faulty and bulbs for illumination or illumination switch is faulty but I would lean with all of those its your gauge cluster
or gauge cluster itself has gone out both of these arent that expensive heres some places where you can get cheap replacements

Do you have an aftermarket sound system installed, that is the problem, it causes a failure in the light control unit.

Where is the starter relay on a 94 Honda Accord


Yes, it sounds like your solenoid is bad and staying engaged against the flywheel, you could do an amperage draw and a voltage drop test to find out for sure, but you will need an DVOM and a amp clamp. Or you could take it into an auto parts store and they will test it for free. Hope this helps.

94 accord, the speedometer doesn't work.........


I had a similar problem a few months ago. I changed the speedometer sensor as well as the instrument cluster with no result. Finally I decided to take out my ECU. As soon as I took it apart, I noticed a burnt node. Replaced the ECU and the speedo worked fine. You might try this if tinkering with your cluster doesn't work.

Back lights or dash light don't not work


I had the exact same problem with my 94 Honda Accord Lx. The fuse for the dash lights and tail lights blew and when I replaced it, it blew again. After a couple more tries, we gave up and took it to a honda repair place and they did a diagnostic for about $50. What they found was the wiring to the trunk was frayed and touching the other wires. They said its a common problem after years of opening and closing the trunk. I had noticed that the trunk light on the dash would sometimes flicker so it makes sense to me. They removed the wiring harness for the trunk, and replaced the fuse and now the lights work fine. And to replace the trunk wiring harness would have cost $60 but I can live without lights in the trunk for now. I am just happy to be able to drive at night again. Hope this helped.

Hi i have the exact same problems with my 94 accord ex


your problem is more complex then faulty gauge cluster as your cruise control doesnt work leading me to believe you need a new speed sensor its located on transmission and your lights could be faulty fuse, switch, or bulbs all of which are easy to test heres steps basically following repair manual ex:haynes or chiltons
1. troublshooting:
test fuse, relay, then switch heres how:
well fuse is no brainer but from there locate relay in electrical system section and test once light switch is activated if power is coming out of relay use schematic in section to find appropriate color wire
then if so pull lighting switch out from dash(carefully using skinny flat blade screw driver
then test to make sure power is coming in and out of switch (refer to color schematic)
if so pull gauge cluster do not unplug power leads test to make sure power is coming into illumination circuit (refer to maual) then if so pull and check bulbs (refer to manual) and replace and your done dont forget to rate me heres some bonus information for saving money on parts and accessories

1994 Honda Accord Ex dashboard removal


You have to remove the console and radio pod. Then remove 2 screws that you can now get to behind the pod. Then pry out the dash light dimmer switch (the one you use to adjust dash light brightness) remove the screw behind it that holds in the gage cluster trim. Then there is another switch on the other side under the cluster (don't remember what it is) and there is another screw behind it. Have fun, LOL!
