SPEEDO~ check the cable remove the intrument panel and access the cable going into the odometer, remove it , pull cable out check it for fraid ends and lubrication IF its not fraid , use PB Blaster or WD40 on the entire cable and reinstall, if still not working correctly you will need to remove it at the transmission end and inspect the little gear.

Reset on this is done by a tool that resets it in the engine compartment, if u dont have the tool u need to ground for 10 seconds the #5 pin, DO NOT DO THIS if u are not sure how to, ALSO need to know is it a 15 pin or 20 pin connector?

Smoke steering colum 92 integra erattic speedomator


The sppedometer is controlled by a vehicle speed sensor in the transmission. This is most likely the cause of the speedometer not working. Smoke from the steering column is usually caused by a bad signal/multifunction switch

I replaced the battery and now the batt indicator light is on. do i have to have the dealer reset the computer to solve the problem


If this doesnt work theres a reset tool you can buy at most auto part stores $25-$40
    • 1 Turn your key to position 2 to power on the battery or turn the key all the way to start the engine on. Either option will allow you to reset the service indicator.
    • 2 Press either of the two buttons on the left side of your steering wheel featuring arrows pointing to the left and right to find the menu displaying the mileage. The menu options will appear on the screen underneath the speedometer.
    • 3 Press either the up or down arrow button until you see the service symbol displayed.
    • 4 Press the trip odometer reset button on the left side of the instrument panel for three seconds until the menu asks, "Do you want to reset the service interval? Confirm with the R-button."
    • 5 Press the trip odometer reset button again to complete the reset process.

Reset service warning light


Try this. I can't promise this will work though. Make sure the trip meter on the speedometer is set to the odometer. Turn the key off. Push and hold the trip reset button on the speedometer and turn the key on. Hold the button until the light goes out. This works with a lot of cars so maybe it will work on yours. Let me know something.
