Default 92 Prelude Type S -- speedometer goes dead intermittently

Hello folks,

I have an unusual problem with my Prelude. When I start my car during
winter (I live in Toronto, Canada) and drive my car in the highway, the
speedometer goes dead and goes down to 0. I warm up my car for about a
minute or so before driving. In addition, this problem only happens when I
drive on the highway and it doesn't happen when the engine is warm. During
the course of driving and the speedometer is dead, the engine yellow light
on my dash goes on until I turn off my engine and restart it again, then it
goes away. It is a very intermittent problem. My tachometer works fine,
however. I really dont know much on cars so I really dont know where to
start. Does anyone might have an idea on what the problem is?

Thanks!

if your trip/odometer still work then i'd guess it the guage itself or a
loose connection somewhere in the dash panel. should be an easy fix.

oh, but make sure the trip/odometer are giving you accurate mileage. if
their not then i'd guess its the VSS (vehicle speed sensor).
