Hi, I have a '97 honda civic lx sedan, the speedometer, cruise and the srs doesn't work. I've checked all fuses an I'm wondering, does the vss need voltage or does it send voltage to the ecm?

Do you
have the same problem?

It needs voltage. The VSS is the vehicle speed sensor. It sounds like it'd dead.

Speedometer and cruise are related but the SRS is another different problem. It is related to the cruise only if the horns are not working, that would mean a bad clock spring reel under the steering wheel.

The VSS needs voltage and it sends a pulse to the speedomter and ECM.
