Does my 1996 honda accord have a vehicle speed sensor


most old cars have a speedo cable.
is the odometer dead too. (we need that answer now)

there are 3 class evolutionary systems.
cable
electric sender to cluster
and sender to PCM and PCM drives cluster.
but honda does this on diffr, dates than most cars. (i learned)

so lets do that. we login to alldata.com and look , so can you at any time,
once a month i do random cars.
what engine, sometimes this varies by engine, and trans.
neither stated so Ill toss coin each time.
a/t trans.
1996
has electronic (hall) speed sensor VSS and runs
engine, cruise. odometer and cluster.

the 96 has no speedo cable, and works in modern mode, very advance for this time
also any scan tool on earth fits the PCM scan port
and if VSS is dead, it tells you that with a DTC , vss dead.
saving all that work wondering why it dont work.
see/?
PCM must see it work
and cluster
and cruise
if only cluster fails, and both speedo and odometer then its bad.
if only speedo fails but not odometer , then speedo meter is bad.
its that easy.

Speedo works sometimes and doesnt work sometimes?


It's unlikely you may have a loose instrument cluster connector unless someone was previously working around that area behind it. If no activity before hand then I'm guessing you may have a deteriorating instrument cluster that needs replacing. You can find people selling in ebay (lower price) or directly from the dealer.

Speedo don't work and loses power sometimes


look on the transmission there should be a either a cable or a wired connector either way make sure its plugged in, if that doesnt help try taking out the speedo cluster in the dash and check connections

Sometimes the speedometer works, but at times in just stays at zero km/h. when it does work though, it is not accurate. It usually works for the first few minutes but then when i stop at an intersection it...


if this is a digital speedo you need to replace it if normal then you need to replace the speedo cable. Or you could buy a cheap GPS they have speedos built into them and they work good for getting you from a to z and back to a as well

1991 toyota speedometer not working. Is it a cable or a sensor? Everything else on the dash works fine.


Sometimes its a fuse. if not it may be the sensor you you will have to replace the sensor first to find out.

1991 S-10 Blazer speedometer, odometer not working, all other instruments work, cruise control also works.


Speed sensor has failed.

It is basically a magnet sensor that reads the RPMs of the tranny.

It is screwed into the side of the transmission.

Do you have an aftermarket alarm installed, or remote start?
Sometimes those wires can be damaged if not installed properly.

It is $33.00 at autozone.
