Honda Repair/Speedometer & Odometer

Question
A few months ago while driving my 1997 Accord LX 2.2L non-vtech, the speedometer needle started bouncing around and eventually stopped working all together.  A day or two later my odometer stopped rolling miles. Where do I start in terms of repair.

Answer
This is a fairly common problem with these cars. Most of the time (not all) this problem is because of the VSS or Vehicle Speed Sensor. Here is a video that shows how to replace it.

Expertise

I can answer most any common auto repair question. The only questions that I can't really answer are questions that would take lots of in-person time to diagnose.

Experience

I've been an automotive technician for about 10 years. I started as a technician then moved into management.
