Why doesn't the speedometer work on a 1993 civic LX?

Does your odometer work? If the speed sensor goes faulty both speedometer and odometer stop working.

What could be the problem on a 1993 Honda Civic VX If the speedometer odometer intermittently works and you have replaced the speed sensor on the transmission?

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).

Whats the problem if the speedometer odometer and trip do not work on a 1994 Honda civic?

The speedometer is wired to a VSS. If it has failed then the unit will need to be replaced. Odometer and trip meter are wired into the same fuse and should be checked. If the fuse is blown the odometers will not work.

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).

Will a 2004 Honda Civic EX speedometer work on a Civic DX of the same year?

Yes. It will work without any modifications. However, local laws may prevent you from being able to do this legally. If the odometer is built into the speedometer, the new odometer must read equal to or higher mileage than the odometer you are removing. Not following such laws may result in fraud charges if you decide to sell the car in the future.

The VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is located on the transmission. If the speedometer is not working, it is rarely the VSS causing the problem. I would first check fuses and the ECU

Why would the speedometer odometer and cruise control on a 1998 Honda Accord stop working and is it difficult to fix?

Sounds like the speed sensor on the transmision, or the conector on same. It could also be an under dash fuse. I am not familar with the accord but my civic speed sensor fuse is shared with about four other sensors and the voltage regulator. Hope that helps.

Why is your Honda civic lx speedometer not working?

The speedometer in my 2001 Civic stopped working or would reflect very high speeds like 120 mph when I was going about 40 mph. I took it to the mechanic, he tested the speed sensor (which often seems to be the culprit) and said it was working fine. He first thought it might be the instrument cluster, but suggested I try cleaning the corrosion off the battery terminals to "reset" the speedometer first. He didn't want to do it himself b/c of the alarm/radio code. I cleaned them off, and low and behold, the speedometer is working great again. May not work for everyone, but it was an easy fix for me and might be something easy you should try before taking it in.
