1997 Honda Civic DX 207,000+ miles.
This issue started as a jumping speedometer that eventually blew a fuse. After two fuse changes, the speedo eventually stopped working without blowing anymore fuses. Shortly thereafter, the car will occasionaly stall when cold and stopping at a light and the idle seems to drop below the normal level.
The only error code generated is code 17 (speed sensor circuit malfunction).
I recently replaced the speed sensor with no change to the issue. I have ordered and am going to change the speedometer as soon as it arrives suspecting a bad cluster.
But this morning, a new issue popped up I believe is related. When I step on the brake or activate the turn signal, the radio loses power momentarily. I believe the taillights might be lighting after a short delay when pushing the pedal.
Could this be an alternator or generator problem? A short in the harness that is getting worse? Grounding problem?
Any help is appreciated.
have the same problem?
