Speedometer is not working an check engine light is on. What can be the problem?

On Hondas, I have seen this problem of the Check Engine light on when the speedometer did not work. This is a problem with the drive cable not turning. 1. The cable might be broken. 2. If any recent work was done to the car, someone may not have connected the speedometer cable back. This was exactly what happened to me after I was trying to troubleshoot a noise from the speedometer. 3. The cable is not turning due to a probem where it connects to the transmission.

I had the same problem on 1991 Honda Accord! It was the old AT fluid. I changed the fluid and all problems vanished! I had asked a Honda mechanic at first problem and he said make sure the AT fluid is good! Happy Honda Owner

Flashing green s on the dash

A green flashing "S" is similar to a check engine light. It is telling you that something in or on your transmission is not functioning correctly, such as the speed sensor or shift control solenoids. If it starts flashing and the speedometer stops working or the transmission shifts weird, take it to a mechanic.
