Question about 1994 Honda Civic

3 Answers

My 94 Civic Speedometer needle just started bouncing up and down and the Odometer doesn't register the mileage driven. Is there a fuse under the dashboard that needs replacing or could it be exposed wires by the intake manifold?

Check the tranny where the speed sensor and cable attaches to it. It may be loose or you could have a faulty sensor.

You need to replace the speed sensor on top of the transmission. Before you replace just the speed sensor pull the whole unit out of the transmission to make sure the gear is still splined to the shaft. I have seen them freewheeling before (no loonger splined) and it causes a very erratic speedometer

The speedometer bounces and sometimes does'nt work at all, and odometer hasn't changed sametime


Right off the bat it sounds like a broken speedometer cable. As the cable spins from the gearing of the transmission it is clicking against the broken part of the cable running to the speedometer gauge. The frictional clicking is what's causing your needle to bounce around. Since the cable is probably broken and cannot spin long enough to move the odometer numbers. Raise your vehicle safely and disconnect the speedometer from the transmission. then see if you can pull the cable out of the housing. If only a portion of the cable comes out, then that should answer your question. Be careful when you disconnect the speedometer cable from the transmission as not to lose any small pieces that cause the drive mechanism to work.

1990 HONDA CIVIC DX ENGINE LIGHT ON


More info needed. Is this a hatch back, sedan, or CRX? Is the odometer mechanical [old style] or digital [LCD numbers] The vehicle speed sensor [located behind the speedometer in the instrument cluster] drives both the speedometer and the odometer [mileage meter]. It sounds like an electric problem in the instrument cluster. Remove the instrument cluster and take it to your local speedometer repair shop. Look in the yellow pages for them. Or simply buy and install a used instrument cluster from a junk yard.

Speedometer runs but odometer dont; on 1993 Crown Victoria


Sounds like the speedometer head itself has failed or is in the process of doing so. While it may be possible to obtain just a speedometer head it would be far easier and probably cheaper to go down to the local salvage yard and get yourself a whole new instrument cluster. Many times they will come with instructions for resetting the mileage to match your car, if it doesn't, just attach a drill to the connection point for the speedometer cable and run the drill until it has the right mileage.
