Re: 1997 honda accord se need to change vss,where
For 1997 Honda Accord 2.2L MFI
4cyl the Vehicle Speed Sensor - Location is located mounted on transmission. OPERATION The Vehicle Speed Sensor
(VSS) is a magnetic pick-up sensor that sends a signal to the
Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and the speedometer. The sensor measures
the rotation of the output shaft on the transaxle and sends an AC
voltage signal to the PCM that determines the corresponding vehicle
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Disengage the wiring harness connector from the VSS.
Using a Digital Volt-Ohmmeter (DVOM), measure the resistance
(ohmmeter function) between the sensor terminals. If the resistance is
190-250 ohms, the sensor is okay.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Disconnect the three terminal connector from the vehicle speed
Remove the fasteners that secure the VSS to the transaxle housing
Remove the VSS.
Install the VSS.
Install the mounting bolts.
Connect the three terminal connector to the sensor.

stand infront of your car, open hood and look at transmission assembly, Vss is neardown the throttle body, and for sure , it is two wired sensor, yellow and orange,,(yellow wire connected to ignition on)
It's a couple of 10mm bolts on top of the transmission. You might need to remove the air cleaner intake tube, etc to see it. It will have wires and a plug on it. Google a pic of the 97 Accord VSS to get an idea of what it looks like. eBay is the cheapest way to go in replacing it. Parts stores are over priced on this.
obviously the vss isnt ok, or else your speedometer would be working....theres a good chance a nice amount of sludge has built up causing the magnet in the vss to not work, after all, thats all it is really...have you checked your vtec solenoid to see if it is leaking oil? or how about the engine itself?...the vss is a simple 123 job, find a cheap one and replace it..better than not knowing how fast your going
Usually the VSS - You can check the code by jumping the "test wire/plug" located behind the pass side plastic kick panel on the lower right. It has a blue tip, place a small wire or a paper clip in the terminals to make a connection. Turn your key forward two clicks to the ACC (not start). Count how many times your "D" light flashes. If it flashes 4 times, you need the VSS changed.
Go to eBay and type: 93 Accord VSS
It's cheap there, Autozone charges over $100.
If it's not that then consider a malfunction in your TCU (Transmission Control Unit) located under the pass side floor carpet by where they put their feet. It's the smaller of the 2 control units. Sometimes there are 2 capacitors that burn out in there. You'd need a Phillips screwdriver to take the TCU apart to look at the circuit board, etc.
If it's not that then consider changing your trans fluid, wiping the magnet tip drain bolt clean and cleaning your shift solenoids. You'll need about 2.5 quarts and it must say Import or Honda Approved on the ATF container. HONDA DOES NOT RECOMMEND GETTING A TRANSMISSION FLUSH. Good luck...
not sure how rought but traditionally, Honda's are known to shift rough... its kinda their sporty style. I think its funny that the Accord is considered a "sedan", when clearly is not a Taurus or Impala which are purely sedans.
A green flashing "S" is similar to a check engine light. It is telling you that something in or on your transmission is not functioning correctly, such as the speed sensor or shift control solenoids. If it starts flashing and the speedometer stops working or the transmission shifts weird, take it to a mechanic.
