I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

Why did my speedometer stop working and within minutes my 02 Cadillac Sts stalled and would barely accelerate?


The speedometer and odometer gets a signal from the speed sensor in the side of the transmission where the speedo cable once was.
The problem could be the speed sensor, or something in the wiring, or in the instrument cluster. Or it could be that the transmission is failing internally.

Speedometer stoped working, just replaced the censer & did a trans. service


There is also a cam shaft speed sensor change it and then see. Most other devices require the input of the pulses from this sensor in order to work. Lets face it if the engine (acording to the cam speed sensor) is not running why alow the speedometer to register

Speedometer and Odometer not working at times, matches with engine heat cycle


Your vehicle speed sensor is mounted in the transaxle housing which is also subject to heating and cooling. The wiring harness to and from the speed sensor is also subjected to engine heating and cooling. Anybody that knows anything about electrical circuits can tell you that an electrical circuit's worst enemy is heat. You need to diagnose the vehicle speed sensor circuits like the code is TELLING you to do.

The speedometer on my 350z stopped Working


See if there are codes stored, pull them and start from there.

It may just be a bad vehicle speed sender to the speedometer.
