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.

Speedometer quit working i checked the sensor and it came out clean


My speedo went out while riding. It would bounce up and down then stopped completely. The odometer still had power but would register no miles. A local mechanic suggested to check the battery cables. While this seemed odd to me, I checked and found them loose. After tightening them up the speedo and odometer worked fine. Apparently the voltage connection to the speedo was hit and miss. So far everything is working great.

06 Maxima; speedometer suddenly stopped working - the odometer still works. Estimates are $450.00 - $500. to repair, any suggestions to avoid costly repair? Thanks.


It does sound like you have gearing trouble in your speedo and that estimate sounds about right. If you're not too concerned with the accuracy of the miles shown on the odometer you may be able to buy a speedo from a junk yard and install it your self or have it installed. If you do the job yourself I recommend getting a manual ( chilton's, motor) to aid you in the specific step by step procedure as these newer cars have seemingly senseless design for securing dashboard components and help you to not break any expensive or hard to find parts.

If your odometer is working and your speedo needle doesnt indicate correctly then your problem is the stepper motor in the cluster. I have repaired a lot of instrument clusters....cost is 105.00
