Question about 1996 Honda Accord
My speedometer is stuck on 20 miles an hour. Once in while it will work, but rarly. I replaced the speed sensor, but there was no change. The speedometer still stays at 20 miles an hour.
My 96 did the same thing. The speed sensor is and was fine -- the problem is an open circuit in the wires inside the gauge itself.
The Chilton's manual has pretty good instructions on how to replace the instrument cluster. You can buy just the speedometer gauge, or an entire instrument cluster for $100 or so on eBay. Just be sure you get a cluster that matches your model and trim line -- the LX and DX have different clusters, and of course the automatic and the 5-speed are different as well.
Do be sure to disconnect the battery before you begin the project, as there's a (slim) chance you can discharge the airbags if you don't
