    I have a 1994 Honda Civic automatic 2dr Coupe. I recently replaced the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) because the Speedometer had not been functioning correctly. It would work on and off. When it did work, it would show the correct speed, but then it would usually just return back to 0 MPH. After replacing the VSS, the speedometer still has not been working. The Odometer does not work either, but the other gauges do. A few days ago (about a month after the VSS was replaced) the Check Engine Light appeared. I checked the code and it is showing a “Code 41”, which is the Oxygen Sensor Heater. I have never gotten a code for the VSS. Everything I read regarding the VSS and the Oxygen sensor related to the Speedometer working erratically, such as showing 140MPH then 70MPH then 0MPH and so forth, where as mine either shows the correct speed, or 0MPH. Does anyone have any advice as to what I should do about this problem? Would I be able to do the work myself?

    Thanks so much in advance.

    I am having a similar problem with my 96 accord ex. Check all the wiring for both o2 sensors and under your intake manifold. I have been told that this is your problem.

    Well if you are not getting a code for the VSS then it might be the speedo itself that isn't working and for code 41 the heater in the sensor may have gone bad, so you would have to replace the sensor unless it is a wiring issue.
