Best Answer

the speed sensor is located on the side of the transmission, there is no physical cable like the older cars, the speedometer and sensor are electronic. If the speedometer is working and showing speed traveled but the trip meter (odometer) is not working, the speedometer itself is faulty, is the speedometer is not showing speed travel and the odometer is not logging miles travel, then most likely the speed sensor is dead.

How do you fix a broken odometer and speedometer on a 1995 Honda accord?

If you search the Internet (I prefer google) for "broken odometer" or some such keyword(s) - you will find your answer(s). But basically, you have two options, find a similar car/odometer at a junkyard, and replace the broken one with one that's working from there.... Or, take it (or send it....) to a speedometer shop which will be able to reconfigure the speedometer. Option 3, I found a high-tech site that details removing the dashboard, removing the speedometer from the dashboard, opening up the speedometer, replacing a broken gear in there (if it's a mechanical speedometer), then basically putting it back together in reverse. Sounded kinda technical, cause you gotta be sooo careful not to move/nudge the numbers the wrong way, or bend the odometer needle when putting it back onto the shaft.
