Question about Honda Accord
I agree with Mr Ferreira that it is probably your VSS (vehicle speed sensor) that has gone bad ... but the VSS also "talks" to your ECM (engine control module) ... so at some point your check engine light may come on also (if it already hasn't)

The speed sensor is malfunctioning on the transmission.I would not fix it as a result of the age of the car.Simply use a GPS for a more accurate speed

The speedometer works from a steel sheathed cable that is connected to the drive shat at the rear of the gearbox. The internal braided steel cable rotates inside the sheath connecting the drive shaft to the back of the speedometer. The cable sheath connects to the gearbox casing and the internal cable has a lug that engages with a rotating shaft in the gearbox. The cable connects in a similar way to the back of the speedometer. Your problem is likely to be associated with the cable. It can have become disconnected at either end or, more likely, the internal cable has broken.
Its easy to check out. Find where the cable come through the firewall between the passenger compartment and the engine compartment then follow it down to where it connects to the gearbox. Disconnect it and see if it is broken. Alternatively you can find where it connects to the back of the speedometer and disconnect it there. If it is broken the internal cable will come out of the sheath.
Replacing the cable is easy enough but requires some scrambling around under the dash.

If all the connection and power supplies to instrument cluster are ok,I suspect that the speedometer or instrument cluster is faulty but before you replace it, make sure the gear inside the transmission that drives the VSS is in good.

check the connection from speedometer to transaxle. Often this becomes loose, especially the transaxle side. Also 92 was a first year model and have heard many wacky problems.

all you have to do is double check your speedometer cable maybe it might be loss or broken if there's a problem to your hardware just replace a new one yeah..
