    hows the power steering system? on the 91 accords they have problems like yours. its due to a loss of power steering fluid. yeah i wondered WTF myself but that was what it was. see if there are any power steering lines running to that part that the cable goes into. let me know if i can help you more. i can look it up on a computer system i have. this is all just a random thought because of the issues with the accords around your year civic

    pull out the gauge cluster to make sure that the wire is still connected.

    damn i just looked this up. its only like 3 steps.now this is for the B1 trans i'm guessin you have and is the same for the B2 also. STEP 1-disconnect battery. STEP 2-remove caps, then the 4 instrument cluster bezel attaching screws. STEP 3-remove the 4 cluster ataching screws then pull cluster rearward and disconnect speedometer cable and electrical connectors. do this to check that the speedocable is still in the speedomete head. so dont actually disconnect the speedometer cable unless you want to for some other reason
