I have been told recently that the problem I am having with my lude's speedometer not working and the s3 tranny indicator light flashing is due to a non functioning speed sensor. I have put 177,000 miles on this car. It had 111,000 miles when I purchased it from the dealer (cleeaan machine). This is the first time I have had this problem. The last owner left all of the service records in the vehicle and there was no mention of replacing the speed sensor. I have been checking forums for the past two months and got little information about testing or, a proper diagnoses of the problem. Honda dealership here wants $85 to diagnose. .
