Thumbs down 91 ACCORD Speedometer

I have read about many problems related to this same issue, it is
either the speed controller or the TCU. The issue is kinda the same of
both but when the S light starts blinking, the check engine light
comes on too and the car will start moving slowly. You press the gas
and engine starts to rev high and the cat starts to accelerate slowly
and picks up gradual speed. I have an automatic transmission however,
if you shift the car into 1st gear then 2and and 3rd and 4th manually,
the car will drive. When the cars S light is not blinking, the car
runs and drive just fine.

I think that the TCU is going or has gone out but just wanted to see
what people here think.


Almost ditto,
found post with no responses.
Same issue, AT 91 Honda Accord LX,
just mine starts when my speedometer goes out, which is sometimes temporarily, or sometimes my speedometer is out for a whole trip. Which can and sometimes cannot be resolved by turning my car completely off... With my speedometer going out of course my mileage tickers stops turning, which is an issue, cause now my engines miles are off by a few hundred.. Happens on hot days more. And has started happening most of the day every day. For the past week or so.

Really is getting annoying to try and match speeds with other cars or count my shifts and watch my rpms.

My moms accord is doing the same thing! sport shift light, check engine light.. no speedo! at all! but the tranny shifts out... pretty much fine.. we have swapped tranny computers and VSS, and even instrument panels, and cannot get the lights to go off or the speed o to start working again. any ideas?
