Default 1994 Honda Accord Speedometer probl (cont'd)

here's more information - She says the speedometer (and odometer) just start
working while she's driving. When and if it starts working, it continues to
work for as long as she drives the car. However if she turns the car off
and then back on - it no longer works. Do those symptoms bring anyting to
mind? Does it sound like a $370 problem?

Thanks

Jerry

This problem sounds pretty familiar to me...Had the same symptom with my
1995 civic cx.I inquired in the group about the problem and i got told to
change VSS(vehicule speed sensor)witch is a 160$ parts here in
Ottawa,Ontario,Canada.After looking at the VSS in question i found out that
the plug that goes to the VSS is loose on it,no more clamp to hold it in
place...I put electrical grease in the connector and put a bit of epoxy to
keep the plug in place and it now work like new.I suggest you check that
connection before buying a expensive electrical part(VSS) that you wont be
able to return.
Good luck!!!

If the check engine light comes on when the speedo is inop, it's a bad speed
sensor at the trans. If the check engine light does not come on, it's a bad
speedo head (fairly common for '94, '95 Accords).

My check engine light did turn on most of the times...when the speedo stop
working(or soon after).I put conductive grease on the plug(VSS)on the tranny
it seems fine for now.No more check engine light either.
