Remove the VSS again and reach into the hole the VSS goes into with your finger. You want to use your finger to ensure that the plastic gear (inside the transaxle) is not damaged or missing teeth. Also check the plastic gear on the VSS. If either of these gears have damaged teeth, your VSS won't turn, hence no speedometer or odometer function.

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.

This is from a 94 Accord; should be the same. Not a great pic., but I think you can figure it out from this:

Got the P0500 CEL code. Already replaced VSS, single-rev sensor and even tried replacing cluster unit. All with no solution. Symptom: Speedometer stays at 0 at first. Engine does not shift to 3rd gear


NO NO NO the VSS sensor has three wires 5 volt reference signal return and ground easy test is to check v-ref and ground. signal return must be tested by using ohm meter checking from computer plug to sensor one of the wires has open circuit this sensor is used to control transmission shifting also can you judge your speed better than the cops radar.

Speedometer quits working and D4 light flashes on 1995 Honda Odyssey. The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is bad. You will need a replacement ($39 online) sensor, Ratchet with extra long extension, 10 mm socket w/ swivel, a long flexible wand with a magnet on the end, and a flashlight. Unplug the wire from the old VSS. Remove the two mounting bolts. Lift out the old VSS and the drive key. Put a small amount of grease on the new drive key and insert it into the new VSS. Plug the wire into the new VSS and use the wire to lower the VSS into place aligning it with the two mounting holes. Use the magnet wand to lower the bolts into the holes and turn to just get the bolts started. VSS IS FLUSH WITH THE TRANSMISSION BEFORE TIGHTENING THE BOLTS. You are now finished. You can access the VSS from the top of the engine in your garage/driveway. It is located on the top/backside of the transmission, just below the air cleaner hose. Best done in the morning when the engine is cold unless you like getting burns on your forearms. Good luck!

Abs light on speedometer ouit and wont shift


Hi, I recommend you test or just replace your speed sensor. Instructions for testing are pasted below. The sensor is mounted on the side of the transmission with a single bolt and has a connector with 2 wires on it. It looks like the picture below, and costs about $35. When reinstalling, be sure to lubricate the o-ring with oil and twist while pushing in. Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

The below test is generic, but gives you a general idea how to test the sensor. Most shops skip to the resistance test (at the bottom), if they do any test at all. A new sensor is $17 at autozone. Let me know if you have any questions.

When driving the car the speedomator goes to 0 and then the tranmission starts slipping


There's a possible worn out clutch inside of the auto transmission. The speedometer going to zero could be the transmission not sensing speed, and then disengaging the transmission to keep the car from stalling at a stop sign, maybe.

Try looking at the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) circuit on the transmission.

Here are some tests that can be performed on the VSS:

1997 honda accord se need to change vss,where


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).

Speedometer and the cruise control does not work and the S2 light is flashing


Replace the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor). It is affordable on eBay. It is on your transmission, near the back, but accessible from the top after you remove a few things. Start with the air box intake tube, etc. Then you'll see a sensor with a cable going to it.

Change oil transmission , fuel filter


The transmission fluid is drained by removing the drain plug.The drain plug is gold in color,and a square drive,3/8" hand ratchet fits the plug perfectly.The trans is drain and fill only,the filter is only accessable when rebuilding,as it is internal in the trans.When refilling,add 3 quarts of Dexron3 or Honda ATF.Fire the engine,let run for a few minutes,turn engine off,anf check level with engine off.Add until full on the stick.
