SPEEDOMETER

1999 Honda Civic • 170,000 miles

My speedo acts up when it wants to gets stuck at 20mph. Today it worked perfectly fine even when I got out of work stopped to put gas then it acted up again. Would I still need a new one or is there a fault within the cables?

This is electrical and not cable driven so it most probably is a fault with the meter itself. If you are electronic savy, remove the meter assy and check the circuit board. If there are any signs of cracked soldered joints, resolder them and retest.

Of course you can but you would have to recalibrate the mileage to match.
