Speedo went out and so did vtec.

I think it would be the VSS. it works if i pull off battery for a bit, then quits and throws a cel. can it just be dirty? can i just clean it or should i just replace it?
i need my vtec back. i got smoked by a accord.

This happened to me last month. I cleaned the sensor and it still didn't work so I just replaced it.

Re: Speedo went out and so did vtec.

Check the code with either methods and is your oil at the correct level?
