Replacing speedometer cluster on 1996 honda accord

My odometer stopped working and I purchased a new speedometer cluster but need installation instructions. Can I purchase an instruction manual that explains how to replace the speedometer cluster on a 1996 honda accord? I read it is a 1.6 hour job. I am pretty decent with mechanical things but it would be so helpful and save unnecessary removal of parts if I have an instruction how to go step by step.

Also, the speedometer cluster I received looks weird, no wires anywhere to attach to, looks like a PC board.

Thank you

I remove two panel underneath the steering column. The first panel is removed using a 10 mm socket. The second panel is removed using a torx socket (can't remember the size). Removing these two panels gives you room to get to the clip on speedomter. Looking at the speedometer, you should see two rectangular holes on each side of the speedometer cover. I use a awl to push in the clip (you could use a screwdriver). Looking underneath the dash, you should be able to see the clip you are pushing on with the awl. I take my 2nd awl and put it behind the clip. I get the left side to release. One the speedometer cover releases, you can see the speedometer. You will see the 4 torx screws (t20) and two smaller clips holding the speedometer. All that is left is the wiring. (I take a sharpie pen and mark one of my wire locations on the speedometer. I am not sure what it does. It is a single wire.)

Chevy is known for using a cheap grade of wiring harnesses that corrode over time and short out. my 93 s10 blazer had a bad wire in the transmission harness resulting in only 2nd and 3rd gear and wouldnt shift by itself, i dont know if im right but something to check into.

At 170,000 the odometer got stuck &I reset the trip meter & after 9 miles it stopped completely. I tried resetting but NO luck. What can I do???


If the speedometer still works, you'll probably have to replace the cluster. Chances are a gear broke inside the odometer.

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.

My odometer stopped working in my accord. The speedometer still works, i thought these would be on the same cable but why then would one still work? Is this a cable problem?


This usually means the dash cluster is faulty and will need replaced. But that is if you really need the odometer they are expensive.

The speedometer, odometer, and tac are not working. It has been determined it is not a sensor. All are working behind the scenes but not on the surface. What could possibly be the problem?


i have seen and replaced may accord 94-97 gauge clusters for problems like this. most common is the odometer stops working or works erratically. you should check ebay for a gauge cluster

1994 honda accord speedometer finally stopped working


Remove the cluster and send to a cluster specialist. if he finds nothing wrong, you should not be charged for this(ask first). If the cluster is fine, check the cables and/or the sensors that run into the tranny.

If it is the ckluster, the specialist can fix and reinstall.

Honda Accord EX 94 vss has been replaced, but still nothing work


If all the connection and power supplies to instrument cluster are ok,I suspect that the speedometer or instrument cluster is faulty but before you replace it, make sure the gear inside the transmission that drives the VSS is in good.

1995 Honda Accord LX -- odometer failure


Has the speedometer failed to?? if so, you are probably in need of the cable that runs from your transmission to the back of the speedometer.This item is called the speedometer cable.If just the odometer itself failed then you have to pull the cluster and have it serviced typically i take mine to the dealer if that happens. (just the cluster,not the whole car.) hope this helps.

1994 Honda Accord


try resetting the trip meter. if that doesn't work you need to replace the speedometer head. i have seen this problem a lot especially when the 94 accord was new and replaced a few speedometer heads.

1996 Honda Accord Speedometer


You, of coarse, have to remove the Instrument panel. There are I bellieve 3 or 4 screws to remove it. All the meters in the Intrument panel are connected electrically by the screws to the PC board. Do you have a replacement one or do you still have to purchase one? I can tell you step by step how to get the dash apart if you want. I had to do this many time with my car. I have a 96 Honda Accord EX. When you have a car like I do with about 200,000 miles on it, I get a lot of practice replacing just about everything inside the vehicle.
