    i have a 90 accord auto and i have no speedometer and no odometer or trip. everything else in the dash works except for those things. it was broke/disconnected before i got the car. the odo says 199k so i thought maybe a previous owner dissconnected it to keep it under 200. its not throwin any codes or anything

    i do believe those are cable operated speedo's. sounds like the cable brook this is typical for the older hondas.

    90 is electrical.

    My 90 Accord had the same problem; and sometimes it would randomly work. It's usually a bad VSS sensor; as cruise control doesn't work either. My car didn't throw any codes.

    It's on top of the transmission(where the differential is) and has two hoses running to it.

    also, i had the same problem, the gauge cluster circuit boards actually fry out, i went through quite a few, i recommend to go to the junk yard and pull out the whole gauge cluster, and install it, should fix the problem
