it is very simple, from the passenger side of the car look way down behind the engine for a two wire connector, there are two I think 10mm bolts holding the VSS or the vehicle speed sensor, this thing is your problem , I got one at a wreckers for twenty bucks because they didn't know what it was, I'm sure it's alot more expensive from the dealer. when you take it out be very carefull not to lose the little drive shaft, its only about an inch long and very small.all your problems with the flashing lights will go away and the speedo will work again. good luck. let me know how it goes and how much for the VSS.

The speedometer cable hooks up to the engine in a Honda Accord. This is how the vehicle is able to calculate speed.

there is a sensor in one of the drive shaft that finds the speed it could either be that or the engine computer is failing

Nope, bet it was the other way around... Your speedometer stopped working and your check engine light came on. A broken speedometer (don't know what car so I can't pinpoint it) will cause a whole bunch of codes.

check your speedometer sensor located back left of engine bay on top of the transmission

the speedometer on my 97 toyota camary stopped working and the check engine light came on why

I once had the same problem in my 89 Sunbird turbo. The computer "ECM" went bad and the speedo stopped working. I would see what ECM codes you have causing the check engine light and go from there.

There are several possibilities why the speedometer is not working. The VSS, vehicle speed sensor may have failed or become unplugged. The speedometer may have failed, or the ECM, engine control module, may have failed or there could also be wiring issues.

The check engine light only comes on for something that affects emissions

2002 Tahoe speedometer quit working and trans will not shift, ABS light on. NEW ANSWER: You need to have the engine and transmission scanned with an OBDII engine scanner so you can find out what speed sensor has gone bad / quite working.

You need to have it checked for codes to know what to diagnose.

You most likely have a bad vehicle speed sensor, it's what gives the signal to the spedo. And it is tied into your cars powertrain control system, that's why the check engine light is on.

maybe your speed sensor is bad you will get a check engine light on the dashboard too.

most likely, transmission, goes into failsafe more, (2nd-gear)...trans-computer see no output from speedo, causing this concer
