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 speed.



TESTING

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disengage the wiring harness connector from the VSS.
  3. 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
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the three terminal connector from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS).
  3. Remove the fasteners that secure the VSS to the transaxle housing assembly.
  4. Remove the VSS.
To install:
  1. Install the VSS.
  2. Install the mounting bolts.
  3. Connect the three terminal connector to the sensor.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.
Hope helps (remember rated this).

My 1997 Honda Accord EX speedometer is not working 95% of the time. Is it the sensor that needs replaced?


Yes, most likely the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor). Not too hard to do. It's on top of your transmission, kind of near the back of it.

I have 1997 honda accord 4 cyl vtec..I need to locate the speed sensor and find out how to replace it. is there any diagrams help me?


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.

Speedo not working is the autotrans on this modle


VSS (vehicle speed sensor) electronic, located on the transaxle. The pic is from a 94 Accord, but it should be close to yours. It's not a great pic, but it should help you find the VSS.

Accord 97 my speedometer works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't i checked the vss and it is ok. Thanks


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

1993 honda accord lx flashing d light???


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...

Car jerks a little when the transmission is shifting gears. It's a 1997 Honda Accord.


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.

cheers!

Flashing green s on the dash


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.
