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.

92 Honda Civic DX-hatch back, 1.5L Speedometer is acting like a tach while driving at highway speeds. Sometimes it will zero out and then it will peg. This is while maintaining a constant speed.


I believe that in '91 or '92 Honda switched from an analog (cable-driven) speedometer to a digital (sending unit/electronic head) version. Likely problem is the sending unit attached to the transmission. Try this website for a replacement and an image of the sending unit: http://www.carpartsdiscount.com/auto/parts/92/honda/civic/switches_sensors_and_senders/speedometer_impulse_sender.html?3593=89758

Good luck.

1994 honda prelude vtec speedometer tach problem


Possible speed sensor. I know the speed sensors are a problem with hondas. A new speed sensor is about $200 and can be easily replaced. It bolts to the top of the transmission on the firewall side. Do NOT buy an e-bay one. They are only about $30 but are junk

1989 Honda Accord speedometer not working. What is a speedo head?


The speedo head or cluster is the part that houses the speedometer and tach, etc. now it may be the speedo cable that comes from the transmission to the speedo head that has broken. If so replace the cable and your back in business. If it is the head you can get them from your local recycle yard.

I have a 1994 Honda Accord LX sedan and the speedometer just stopped working. My mechanic just put in a transmission that he bought from a junk yard. How do i fix this problem?


I have a 99 accord and my speedometer and odometer did not work. The problem was the VSS vehicle speed sensor. The VSS is located on the transmission. Once I replaced it everything worked fine.

try resetting the trip meter. if that doesn't work you need to replace the speedometer head. i have seen this problem a lot especially when the 94 accord was new and replaced a few speedometer heads.

My 92 does the same thing. I beleive its in the ignition. I had to replace the distributor twice. Honda thru 95 had weak distributors also the fuel pump and injectors are getting weak.

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.
