Updated!! Please help!! Speedometer Issue

Hey guys I searched this up on the forum already found problems similar to mine but nothing specific enough for a 5th gen. So I have a 2001 Manual Honda Prelude SE I bought a couple weeks ago and everything seems to be pretty solid except for the speedometer. The problem is the speedometer, it randomly just starts bouncing everywhere at random times, sometimes it`ll drop to zero even while i'm moving, etc. It does whatever it wants whenever it wants, some days it won`t happen at all some day`s it`ll happen all day. It`s been happening for a couple weeks now and today it was bouncing so much the engine light came on out of nowhere. Now the engine light is on and I`m worried on what it could be exactly. When I searched this problem up most people were saying its the VSS, if it is could anyone tell me how to get to it and check it? Just wondering if anyone knows what could be wrong, I would love some input. Thanks for the read and input !!

Re: Speedometer Issue

I had the same issue with mine when i first picked it up, was driving on the freeway & out of the blue the same thing but also my odometer stopped working too, So i tested my alternator and she was on her way out... put another one in & all that BS was gone, VSS was gonna be 2nd on the list, best of luck!

Re: Speedometer Issue

more likely your speedsensor is broken. it's very easy to replace and part is only $70+ at autozone or O'reilly

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
