Look for the vehicle speed sensor mounted on the transmission to be bad,this is the most likely cause.

The speedometer and odometer have stopped working. They failed and came back a few times before failing totally. Any ideas?


If it is the speed sensor in the transmission, you should also have problems shifting and the check engine light should be on.
If it shifts normally, the speedometer has failed.

Does my 1996 honda accord have a vehicle speed sensor


most old cars have a speedo cable.
is the odometer dead too. (we need that answer now)

there are 3 class evolutionary systems.
cable
electric sender to cluster
and sender to PCM and PCM drives cluster.
but honda does this on diffr, dates than most cars. (i learned)

so lets do that. we login to alldata.com and look , so can you at any time,
once a month i do random cars.
what engine, sometimes this varies by engine, and trans.
neither stated so Ill toss coin each time.
a/t trans.
1996
has electronic (hall) speed sensor VSS and runs
engine, cruise. odometer and cluster.

the 96 has no speedo cable, and works in modern mode, very advance for this time
also any scan tool on earth fits the PCM scan port
and if VSS is dead, it tells you that with a DTC , vss dead.
saving all that work wondering why it dont work.
see/?
PCM must see it work
and cluster
and cruise
if only cluster fails, and both speedo and odometer then its bad.
if only speedo fails but not odometer , then speedo meter is bad.
its that easy.

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

Sounds like two different problems - the brake light switch and the speed sensor in the transmission.
Does the speedometer work ?

The sped ometer and odometer has quit,now i notice sometimes the transmission does not shift from first without stopping placing it in park. Turn off switch and start over and it will down shift at times


depending on the model and year there are so many sensors and solenoids on the trans and engine that it is going to be hard to fix without a scan tool.......but if this started at the same time the odometer and the speedo quit working i would be looking at the speed sensor in the trans and then the speed sensor that is made in the speedo head that both can make the speedo head and the odometer not work......i hope that this info will help you and if ican be of any other help let me know.......let me and fixya know if this was any help to you and a thumbs up would be appreciated.....good luck and have a blessed day............

Speed odometer stops cruise doesnt werk when this happens and the trans also shifts up and down during this time


The most likely cause,besides the speedometer being bad is the vehicle speed sensor in the transmission.It is mounted on the outside of the transmission and is fairly easy to replace.

2000 caravan odometer and speedometer stopped working and transmission started slipping and check engine light came on. All this happen after hitting a pot hole.


You need to have it checked by a mechanic soon! Sounds like you lost communication with the Vehicle Speed Sensor. The engine computer relies on it for shifting the trans and working the speedo, wait too long and you could cause major damage.

Loosing power at cruising speed


have you had the transmission flushed? it seems to be caught in a limbo. where the calibration of the speedo and the transmission are not compatable. Now as wierd as that seems it happens usally like when going up a hill if you have a manual trans. and cruise locked in. it cant hold that speed and moves to a different speed if you dont down shift. Or perhaps your cruise control cable is slipping. is it vacume over mechanical? pop the hood and make sure all your hoses to cruise control are tight and no leaks.
