Speedometer quits working and D4 light flashes on 1995 Honda Odyssey. The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is bad. You will need a replacement ($39 online) sensor, Ratchet with extra long extension, 10 mm socket w/ swivel, a long flexible wand with a magnet on the end, and a flashlight. Unplug the wire from the old VSS. Remove the two mounting bolts. Lift out the old VSS and the drive key. Put a small amount of grease on the new drive key and insert it into the new VSS. Plug the wire into the new VSS and use the wire to lower the VSS into place aligning it with the two mounting holes. Use the magnet wand to lower the bolts into the holes and turn to just get the bolts started. VSS IS FLUSH WITH THE TRANSMISSION BEFORE TIGHTENING THE BOLTS. You are now finished. You can access the VSS from the top of the engine in your garage/driveway. It is located on the top/backside of the transmission, just below the air cleaner hose. Best done in the morning when the engine is cold unless you like getting burns on your forearms. Good luck!

1989 toyota corolla 1.6 gl, where can i find the terminal for speedometer in the engine bay..

Output speed sensor usually located in transmission usually close to where axles go into transmission. The sensor can be identified by having 8 mm headed bolt that hold the sensor in. These speed sensors just don't quit one day. A wire is usually the culprit or debris on magnet of sensor or physically broken sensor. If speedometer intermittently starts working then its always a wire with bad connection.

Is speedometer connected to Tranny?

There is a vehicle speed sensor on top of the rear differential, this sensor is also for the anti-lock brakes. Sometimes you just remove it and clean it (it's magnetic) and may start working again otherwise you have to buy new. Yes, this sensor will affect the trany shifting.

Broken speedometer

Not much info to go on, If your speedometer is not working it is more than likely a speed sensor. On the 96 it is located on the rear differential. It bolts in on the top of the hogs head, and only takes a single 10 mm bolt to hold it in. Before you replace it, take if off and clean it and try it. Sometimes the magnet gets too much wear particles on it to read the pulses. If that does not work , replace it before having to go to the computer or the cluster. 9 ot of 10 times it is just the speed sensor,.

Green sports light blinks , speedometer needle bounces or doesn't

Does your D4 blink and is your cruise control operating. When you start it does it sometimes start real rough and shake a lot? If so it's probably your ICM.
