Default 90 accord mystery speed sensor

okay, here we go this is wild I know. My sister in law brought her
accord 156,000 miles, over tonight because the speedometer and tach
were not functioning and a flashing s appering. After several searches
and what not I determined the culprit to be the speed sensor. I looked
at the one presently under the hood and noticed that someone had done a
poor job previously replacing, and they just direct wired and did away
with the plug system, the wires were loose and held together with
electrical tape. Got a sensor from a local shop, installed and made
the wiring proper. Now when you turn the key on the car will not shift
out of park without pushing in the lock release inside, nor do the
automatic seatbelts work, the power windows will not work, the tach and
the speedometer do not work either. Is it possible that something had
shorted when I was checking the wiring for the speed sensor. The break
lights do work and you get the click noise when stepping on the break.
Power locks work fine. Everything except what listed works just fine
any ideas on what to do to get this fixed? Thanks in advance...mike

oh yeah and upon further inspection the turn signals are not working as
well. Is there a wire in the area I was in, that could be causing
these problems? Checked all fuses multiple times cleaned etc.

Mike, no replys do not necessarily mean no one is reading.
Much more likely: no one has any good ideas!

sounds good brian I was just getting frustated with the situation. I
put it all back together with the old speed sensor took the new one
back because I was in a pinch and paid 136 so once that wasn't the
problem got the cash back. My sister in law drove it to work this
morning and out to lunch and she said now the speedometer works again.
So I believe there is a short in the orange or yellow wire, one pegged
5 volts and the other was around 0.6 volts. So I'll check the wiring
again on Sunday.
