Im not sure about this. but check the distributor wires.Meaning take off the cap, and rotor and the moisture cover. There should be three wires, I know one is for the r.p.m gauge. Take them off individually and check for corrosion from the moisture. It needs to be bare metal for good electric conducting. Just wipe them off, and make sure the fittings are firmly snug when snapped back into place.

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.

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.

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.
