The speedometer cable needs to be greased up soon or the cable will break. Then you will have no reading on the speedometer and not know how fast you are driving.

Speedometer erratic...replaced fuse and was ok for 24 hours Honda Civic 1998


Hi:
Your speedometer is driven by a speed sensor that is on the top side of the transmission. It would be worth your trouble to locate it, and unplug the electrical connector to see if it is clean and connected well. If everything looks ok, you are down to it or the actual speedometer unit.

Usually, if the transmission speed sensor is bad, you have other driveability issues too, so you might have just a minor problem.

Fuses blown do not have manual to help locate fuses


The fuse panel should be below the steering wheel to the left. A blown fuse would explain why the electronic speedometer isn't working, but a blown fuse wouldn't explain the OD light. If the speedometer starts to work after replacing the fuse, but reads erratically, you might want to check the vehicle speed sensor.

Speedometer erratic/intermittent


I don't know what is causing this problem, but I know phil140701's answer is completely wrong on two counts. First, 740 Volvos starting at least in 1986 have electronic speedometers and no cable. There is an electronic sensor on the differential which sends a signal to the speedometer cluster. Second, if it were strictly mechanical with a cable then the voltage regulator could have no effect on it at all.

95 honda accord v6 tach erratic and sometimes zero accompanied with minor power flucuations.


Hi ....
On your HOnda accord V6.
The rpm is generated from the Distributor.
The more possible problem for erratic RPM is the cam sensor inside of the Distributor. But I guess you can't buy just the sensor.
And can afect the engine performance.

OK. I hope this information work for you.
I work on cars everyday. Thank you for use fixya.
