Try tracing the wiring harness to the bundle under the intake. It is attached to a large metal bracket. The wiring has probably worn bare. Wrap the bundle with electrical tape and try to isolate it from the bracket better. I have repaired several intermitten speedos on 92-95 Civics due to this.

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.

ok, hard facts, 1st time here every, for both facts at once.
but no year. is it a 1976?
the VSS and Speedometer relationships on all cars evolved
radially 5 times. in 38 years of accords.
so no year, no joy.
on very old cars. the speedo cable is snapped. (or drive gear)
on 2014 cars, you connect a scan tool
and see if the VSS is working, if it is then the speedo is bad.
radical. i can do them all with good inputs.

98 honda civic speedometer not working. it will jump around and then settle at 20.


It's a common problem with the civic's, the speedo is bad, you can try findind one in the bone yard but it may be bad to, the dealer is expensive, In my 95 civic I turn on my tom tom and it has the speed on it, all the other gauges work fine, the odometer will work fine, just the speedo.

My 04 civic's speedometer does not work on cold mornings. It will work after the car warms up for 5-10 miles. My friend says I need a new vehicle speed sensor. Where is the VSS located and how difficult...


the vss is located a top of the manual transmission, near the fire wall, there are two sending units on the transmission,the first one is the reverse light sending unit, and the other one is the vss,

Speedometer and tach stopped working 92 honda accord


Since the Speedo and Tach both quit working and they use separate sending units, I would be looking for a common electrical plug they share under the dash behind the speedo. When you find said plug check to make sure that it is plugged in securely. if it seems to be plugged in well unplug it and then replug it just in case the contacts were getting a bit dirty or corroded.

My 92 honda civic speedometer works only half the time


check the connection from speedometer to transaxle. Often this becomes loose, especially the transaxle side. Also 92 was a first year model and have heard many wacky problems.

1998 Honda Civic speedometer nervous on the red light


?? 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.
