1992 Honda Civic Speedometer Problem

My speedometer only works when it feels like it. Sometimes it spazes out and goes up and then back to zero. It doesn't work in the mornings or when it's raining outside. It usually works in the afternoon when it's hot outside. I've taken it to a local mechanic but they don't know what to do. Can anyone help?!?

The car is an automatic.


When you say the speedometer does not work, do you mean the needle is stuck at certain speed or is at zero all the time.. If it is at zero all the time, replace your meter. If it's stuck at certain speed, give it a knock with your fingers. And if that do not work, drill a pin hole with a fine drill just above the position where the needle is stuck and using a fine thin wire, push the needle back to zero position.

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.

While driving, The speedometer needle sometimes doesn't move from zero.


IS this a Chevrolet? What year?

There is a known problem with the Instrument Clusters and you have to replace the Stepper Motors to get it to work correctly..

This is true for most Makes and Models but Especially in GM Products I will only rebuild a Cluster with a X27.168 Stepper Motor

Speedometer does not work. Started not working one cold morning


the speedo is run by a nylon gear on the ebd of the vehcile speed sensor mounted on the trans. Sometimes it won't come out due to corrosion.

A siganl then goes to the instrument cluster and is converted to operate the speedo and also tells the engine computer speed info to control shift quality, etc.
I would first check the 2 wire connector on the top back of the trans where the VSS is mounted. Sometimes it gets corroded too.

go here too

Speedometer is stuck under zero


Pull the rubber trip reset pin out slowly so all you see is the hole & the shaft. Take a long tin-tie (about 5 inch) & fish it inside the speedo to the needle & carefully bring it back counterclockwise when its back at least to "2-3 O'clock" hold it & turn your switch to coil...the needle will go back to zero. keep the tin-tie in your coin box if ever it happens again!
