Question about 2002 Honda Accord

Odometer quit qorking

All of these problems started about the same time. The odometer in my 2002 Civic quit counting, the needle still indicates the proper speed. There is a clicking sound under the car when moving in reverse. Sometimes the car will crank but will not start. Where do I go from here?

Have your car scanned for a trouble code. It is probably the speed sensor at the transmission. They are known to cause this kind of problem.

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.

I have a 2002 Honda Civic and the malfunction indicator lamp is on and my speedometer and odometer are not working at all. Any advice?


I would look in the owners manual and check the fuses for the guage cluster.
also take the vehicle to a local parts store and they should be able to check the codes for you so that you can narrow down the problem.
and if the light goes on for a few days then goes off you might want to check that your fuel cap is tight.

good luck, hope this helps

Tac works, mileage counter works but speedometer quit working...any ideas before I take it to the dealer?


if the odometer qorks but the speedo dont then you have a bad guage.look online for speedometer or instrument cluster repair places they will probably be cheaper but you will have to change it out yourself. the dealer is the best place to go for such things though.

By turning the key on and off does not pull engine codes in 2001 dodge the system has changed


With the battery connected?
With a Digital Odometer: Turn the Key from Off to On (not start) three (3) times, On the third (3rd) time leave it in the On (not start) position. The Codes will appear in the Digital Odometer Screen. When it is finished it will show "PdonE".
It is on the 2001 Dodge Caravan.
Without a Digital Odometer?
Turn Key the same way and leave the same way.
Watch the Engine Light (yellow) and count and record the blinks. Do it a few times to get the count correct.
These are 2-digit numbers. The last set is 5-blinks and 5-blinks indicating that it is complete.

The car never starts, the "S" indicator (beside de speeds) on the console es always blinking, this indicator usually es off or lighted when you use the sport option of the automatic transmition


I used to have a 1993 Honda Civic, "S" indicator light came on indicates it is an electrical problem, count how many times the light blinks and let us know, the number of times it blinks is the trouble code you need. See this website for more help:

Hello, I have a 2002 honda civic ex. When I turn the key on I get the maintanence required light. after the engine starts the light blinks 10 times and then goes out. I couldn't find any guidance in the...


First, make sure you are talking about your mainanence required light, and not your check engine light.
Your maintanence required light is telling you that some normal maintanence is required since you have traveled some pre-determined number of miles (pre-determined by Honda). For example, it could mean an oil change should take place, etc. If you keep track of those things on your own, then you need only reset the light, as follows:
Turn off the engine.
Press and hold the Select/Reset knob (odometer) in the instrument panel, then turn the ignition switch just to ON (II). Do not start the car.
Hold the knob for approximately ten seconds until the indicator resets.
Hope this helps you.

Car speedo & odometer sometimes work OK, other times not at all.


Most likely a speed sensor is going bad (most cars and truck do not use mechanical speedometer cables anymore) most sensors are located near the differential in rwd cars or near the drive shaft on the transmission. Best bet is to get a Haynes manual for your car to help locate the speed sensor. Remove it and take it to the auto parts store so you can visually compare it to the replacement. Install the new speed sensor and it should restore your speedometer and odometer.

Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage


The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

Wrench = Maintenance Minder: Symbol letter & number...
Symbol A - Relace engine oil.
Symbol B - Replace engine oil & filter, Inspect front & rear brakes, Check parking brake adjustment, Visually inpest the tie rods, suspension components,driveshaft boots, brake hoses & line (including ABS), all fluid levels & their conditions, exhaust system, fuel lines & connections.
Symbol 1 - Rotate tires.
Symbol 2 - Replace air cleaner element (dusty conditions every 15K miles) & replace dust & pollen filter (behind glovebox) every 15K miles if mainly dusty or city driving.
Symbol 3 - Replace transmission fluid.
Symbol 4 - Replace spark plugs.
Symbol 5 - Replace engine coolant.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.
