Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Speed odometer stopped working.

We changed the throttle body, drove it to see if the light comes back on, which it didn't. But now the odometer and the RPM's don't work. Everything else is fine. The miles work so does the digital clock.... I drove it and it was working. I parked it for about 3 minutes then when I started it and took off again it, the odometer and the RPM's were not. any help?????

    I have the exact same problem. I noticed that when the weather is cold, the speed odometer works. Does this happen to you?

I doubt the two problems are related.
The computer uses an idle speed control valve to regulate idle speed. The valve controls the amount of air entering the intake.
You should have a check engine light on and also a stored trouble code for the valve. It could also be a problem with the throttle plate in the throttle body.

The throttle body just passes air thru it
Why would change that?

The only time a throttle body gets changed,
is when the TACM motor on it fails & is not
avail separately

Most TPS Sensors on it can be replaced

What about using the fault codes & actually
diagnose the system with the fault?

The check engine light should come back on at some point.
Chances are the problem is the speed sensor in the transmission.

This is idle air control error and with luck should be easy and cheap to remedy. Basically you need to clean out the interior of your throttle body and throttle plate thoroughly. Disconnect the air ducting between the air filter and the throttle body. Use a cloth and WD40 spray and clean the throttle throat and plate. rotate the plate and clean behind. If you have idle air control passage leading off from the throttle wall interior you will find the idle air control valve mounted on the side of the throttle with an electrical connection to it. Remove the connection and unbolt the valve. Clean the valve interior and the passages in the throttle leading to it. Reassemble everything in reverse order and that should be the job done

Do you know where to find the main speed sensor on a 1996 hoda accord ex


It should be on the back of the transmission, almost directly under the throttle body. If you want to get rid of it, just unplug it, but your speedometer and odometer will stop working.

Remove AIS motor (automatic idle speed) at front area of throttle body & clean it well & port it comes out of with throttle body spray cleaner, then re-install it. If it cures it for a while, then starts to do it again, replace it.
