SOURCE: 1998 Honda Civic speedometer nervous on the red light

The speedometer is not cable driven, like older cars. It works off of an electrical sensor called a vehicle speed sensor (VSS) that is mounted on the transmission.

If the headlights or dashboard lights dim and brighten in rhythm with the speedometer jumping, (check engine light is also on) the problem may be alternator, or fuse, or wiring harness scraping the bottom of the intake manifold and/or poor ground connection related.

see: http://www.hondalac.com/service/Bulletins/x99-029e.pdf


If the lights are steady, and only your speedometer needle jumps back and forth then the VSS signal is erratic. Consider replacing the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) to repair the speedometer problem.

Hope this helps.

Actually the Speedo is controlled by the PCM I would pull the NEGATIVE battery cable for 30 minutes and then hook it back up. this will reset the PCM.

SOURCE: Speedometer - 40MPH

the speedo is electronic, not cable, this problem is caused by a sticking stepper motor that moves the needle, a stepper motor is a miniature electric motor that can move and hold one position, this was a common problem at the dealer I worked at, u will need to pull the speedo and send it out for repair, I use the following link for this service.

SOURCE: 96 Ford f 150 the speedometer needle keeps jumping

Raise the rear end of the truck on ramps on the top of the differential is the abs scencer also regulates the speedometer take it out clean it with a break cleaner dry it replace it. If it still does it replace it cost under 20 bux. If it still does it it could be a faulty ring inside the differential.

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.

Speedometer is sticking and then jumping up every couple of mph


The speedometer in this truck is electronic, the needle is moved by a tiny electric motor called the speedometer needle stepper motor, a stepper motor is a DC motor than can hold one position rather than just rotate when power is applied to it. You will need to remove the instrument cluster from the truck and send it in to a Ford electronics repair center that repairs speedometers.

My 89 Buick Skylark speedometer reads 10 mph fast.


there is no censor for speed on a buick skylark.
i have an 88 same motor and everything
u jumped a tooth on the gear that drives the needle.
u have to pop the dash off and get to the problem behind the main gauge and the needle assembley should come right out. either that or you stripped the gear and its just going wherever it pleases.

?? Does it move on the road ? You could have a worn out CV joint that allows the transmission to free-wheel. If that is the case, replace immediatly, or the transmission differential will fail.
