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.

SOURCE: 1995 honda accord speedometer and odometer not working

Sounds like either your speedometer cable, your nylon gear on the side of the tranny where the cable ties in, or the odometer itself is shot. One of those three will set you straight. If you are able, remove the cluster, take the cable off the back, and pull it out of the sheath. You will see if its broken or not from there. If not, slide it back into the sheath, then you have to find out where the sheath meets the tranny, and pull it off of there. Then, you can get someone else to watch the speedo as you turn the cable from the bottom. If it works, great, if not, then its your cluster/odometer/speedo. If it does work, the small gear in the transmission is shot.

SOURCE: speedometer and tach stopped working 92 honda

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.

SOURCE: 1994 Honda Accord automatic; Speedometer/Odometer intermittent

I read that this is a common problem and that the speedometer head needs the connections re-soldered on the circuit board. I am going to do this on my Honda when I get the chance. The speed sensor is over $100 so it is worth a try. One way you can see if its the speed sensor or not is if the cruise control works if you have that option.

2002 honda accord coupe stuck in park. did this a couple days ago but eventually went into drive. now it will not come out of park after attempting many times and turning off and restarting car.


could be the brake switch. unless the brake is pressed it wont release it from park. you can manually put it in gears, theres a little cirlce or square access hole you gotta pry up and remove the plastic piece then push down with a screw driver

In all probability, the brake switch got stuck in the closed position. One way to test it is by trying to move the shift lever from Park to Neutral without depressing the brake. If you can do this, then the switch is damaged. It is very simple and inexpensive to replace.It is located a few inches above the brake pedal rubber pad.

Most honda have a Shift Lock hole next to the shifter, looks like a key hole, put the key in the hole and the shifter should be able to release.

1990 honda accord


when you step on the brake pedal it energizes a solenoid located next to the shifter (under the console) that disengages a mechanical stop which prevents you from putting the car in gear w/o the brakes applied. Safety First. If that solenoid goes bad you will experience this. The brake pedal switch could come into play here as well but not certain of this. are there any other symtoms such as brake lights don't work?
