Question about 2005 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Speedometer Hello, My speedometer is going from 60mph to 0mph while I am driving. It ususally happens in the morning once every two months or so, but lately I have noticed that it is happening more everyday. I took it to the Honda dealership and they could not find the solution because there is not a code that appears on the dashborad.

The most common problem causing this is fixed by simply resetting the gauge control module. This isnt a definite, but it is quick and is worth a shot, you can do it yourself. Follow these directions EXACTLY.
You will lose your radio settings doing this btw.
Make sure you have your radio code before doing this, you will need it.

1. Disconnect the neg battery cable and then disconnect the positive battery cable.

2. Touch the cables together(to each other, not the terminals) for about 2 minutes.

3. Reconnect the positive cable and then the negative cable.

4. Start the engine, it should work normally. (If not let me know and I will tell you your next option)

5. Next, Turn the car on, turn off all electrical stuff like AC and radio.

6. Let the car heat up to regular temperature, then let it idle for 10 minutes. (It may be a rough idle, the computer is relearning how to idle)

7. Shut the engine off.

8. Turn the key to the ON position(not RUN)

9. Make sure the window is all the way up. Now put the window all the way down.

10. Next, put the window all the way up again, and hold the up button for 5 seconds after it has reached the top. (this sets the window auto up feature)

Good luck

My 05 Focus speedometer is wacky. All other gauges and systems work fine. The speedometer needle doesn't go to zero when vehicle stops moving.

Sounds like the speedometer is faulty. If the speed sensor were the problem, the odometer would not work correctly, the transmission would not shift correctly, and the check engine light would be on.

I was driving approx.60mph,when my speedometer stop working and the trans.seem to shift into second gear,I believe it to be a speed sensor problem. I do not know the location of it though.

You probably have a blown fuse that conrols the speedometer and shift point of the transmission; Check the fuses inside the car under the dash on the driver side. The speedometer tells the transmission when to shift.

'92 Isuzu Trooper speedometer problem

Replace the speed sensor located on the transmission this sends the signal to the speedometer, you may want to check the plug and its terminals to be sure the terminals in the plug are not corroded if they are clean the terminals with electrical contact cleaner then drive the care see if cleaning the plug fixed it if not replace the speed sensor.
