Intermittant warning light after hitting pothole. When accelerating lose all dash including speedometer and tacometer.


My first guess would be a wiring problem in the engine compartment. Something is breaking contact when the engine moves back and forth.
Could be something around the battery or alternator, or a ground wire.

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.
