If a 1992 Honda Civic's speedometer is erratic, the problem could be the speedometer cable. It could also be the speedometer sensor malfunctioning. Check both components carefully.

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

I believe there is no cable to the center and speedometer

The speedometer on a 1996 Honda Accord EX is the pulse variety. It is likely that the teeth on the speedometer gear are not meshing properly.

I have a 2004 Honda Civic. The Speedometer rests at 35 MPH and when traveling at 55 MPH, it reads 85MPH.

It is possible for a speedometer to go on and off on a 1995 Honda Accord because the parts are worn out. A new speedometer mechanism may be necessary. Also, check to see if there are any loose parts. Rain and debris from a roadway can cause damage to the speedometer cable.

It sounds like your speed sensor is going bad. It is located below the air tube that connects the air cleaner to the intake manifold, on the passenger side, on the transmission.

A 98 Civic does not have a speedometer cable. It is an electronic speedometer. So if you are having problems with it not working the most likely culprit is the vehicle speed sensor (VSS).

The cable that controls the speedometer needs to be replaced more than likely. That is what had to be done to a Dodge Stealth's speedometer to work properly. ==New Answer == Actually - there is no speedometer/odometer cable on a 1993 Honda. The system is all-electrical. So it has to be either a bad wiring harness/plug connector, OR a bad speedometer head (unlikely).

Sit in the driver's seat and look through the steering wheel. That large gauge in the middle with 0-140 is the speedometer.

I'm not too sure about the 1994 Honda accord because i don't have one myself. However, in most cars the speedometer sensor is located on the transmission, close to the point of engagement between the transmission and the front axle. The speedometer is attached tho the transmission with bolt(s) depending on the car.
