Default 1996 honda accord speedometer issue

the speedometer on my 1996 Honda accord is intermittently working and not working and is mostly random...this problem started about a week ago and when the speedometer doesn't work neither does the odometer, this happened once before and it was the VSS but then there was a CEL, this time there is not and i have replaced the VSS as i thought it may have went bad again. if i hit the front of the cluster/top of the dash sometimes it will come back on. also sometimes once the car warms up it will work normally, i was thinking it may be the cluster itself but a buddy of mine told me if it was it would most likely not be and on and off thing and would just go bad all at once, so i am at a standstill.... i have taken the whole dash apart and tightened the screws on the back of the cluster and made sure all the wires were tight.....anyone else have this problem?

Mine did it for a while and then completely quit working. Have yet to solve the issue (as my car has been down since Aug Click the image to open in full size. ) but I'm pretty sure its the connection between the harness and the VSS.

Both of you refer to my thread about the Cluster Removal in the Accord FAQ.

I had the same problems.

You'll want to get a hold of a working speedometer and replace just the green circuitry on the back.

Like I said, refer to the Accord FAQ Cluster thread (I wrote it in text, another added pics)

I have a 95 accord and the odometer was working intermittently. I gave it a sharp tap and it works now. Sometimes you gotta smack things around a bit. :D

It will die after a few months. Easiest fix is a new set of gauges.

when you have to smack the thing around so much your brake all 4 screw screw in points...i think its time to say smacking it around has run its course

Default Re: 1996 honda accord speedometer issue

My 96 Accord has developed the speedometer problem of working only at times. I've read through several postings and believe mine stems from the printed circuit. My cruise control works even when the speedometer doesn't. That makes me believe that the signal is coming out of the sensor at the transaxle. Now my question: Might anyone know of a source of the printed circuits or do I throw the dice and buy a used one. I've read about trying the resoldering and am not above trying that as well if no easily obtainable printed circuits are available.
Thanks
Marvin

Default Re: 1996 honda accord speedometer issue

I had the same problem. It was the Circuit board that connects to the odometer and speedo. I tried to re-solder...didn't work. I went to a pull and pay and swapped the whole instrument cluster, that didn't work. Went back to the salvage yard and pulled just the circuit board and popped it in...bingo. Turns out the original board was bad and the second cluster I purchased also had a bad board. It's a common problem. Good luck.

The board cost me five dollars and the cluster something like 25. Here in Denver they are easily located in most salvage yards.
