That is an accord if I am not mistaken. All you have to do is replace the VSS(vehicle speed sensor). If you look down it is mounted on the transmission close to the bell housing underneath the air intake duct just below the thermostat housing. That is an accord sickness. I have fixed so many accord with same problem. On civic it is about in the same area where it is located. It is repairable, but it is not worth your time. I even invented a tester for a honda vehicle sensor so I could bring it to a junkyard and test it so I wont have to keep coming back and fort.

Have a look at the brake pedal and find the switch for the brake. It sounds like something simple like the brake switch is jammed on. Once you identify the switch see if you can't find where the plug is. Remove the plug and test the switch, press the brake peddle up and down whilst you are doing this to assertain if the switch is activating on and off properly or staying switched on it.

Assuming this is a manual shift transmission then 5th has probaly melted due to no lube.5 th gear is smaller on the countershaft and does not dip into the sump as far.So it is the first to loose oil when trans is low.If this is a 5 speed auto like on the 04 up accords and odessy vans then clutches are most likely damaged.Either way you are gonna need transmission repair.Good luck!

Code 9 is a loss of signal from No.1 cylinder position sensor
which is referred to as the CYP sensor. The wire colors for this sensor are Orange and White, they go to ECM (computer) terminals B11 and B12. Below is a page showing the diagnostics for all the sensors, first make sure you have a good circuit to the CYP all the way to the ECM, if you do then the ECM is likely defective, this part runs around $300.00 in the aftermarket, so do your testing.
The repair manual page below may be hard to see, do this, copy the page to your picture file on your PC, then use the picture viewer to enlarge it. You can also use any photo program you have to enlarge it.

it is 20 years old, the brakes should have been changed at least 4 times by now. if you hear the metal wear tang hitting the rotor, or a dragging or scraping sound when you hit the brakes, it is time again.if you can feel the brakes through the brake pedal, it is time again.

There is a sending unit in the gas tank that measures fuel level, it mostly likely needs to be replaced.

From what you have described either the replacement alternator or regulator are faulty.all 1985 model here have the reg built into the alternator.Put a voltmeter across the battery terminals while running.volts should be 14 to 14.8 if it is being charged correctly,12.8-13.9 if it is poorly charging and less if it is only running on the battery.I assume that the fanbelt is tight and not slipping.There are several other reasons that can cause this fault but establish the basics first.Make sure that the main feed wire from the alternator to the battery is fitted onto clean terminal and isnt broken internally.To test this you can carefully check volts at the alternator terminal end,be careful not to arc out on anything metal while doing this.you may blow the charging fuse(check this anyway as part of test).the volts should be the same as reading from the battery.If it is lower,twist the wire about while reading and see if it changes.It will either need replacing if faulty or try new terminal ends first.Make sure that the replacement alt has the same plug configuration as the one you removed.Honda have a few different plugs that switch the trigger wire around(whether round or rectangular)Hope this helps you.if not get back with your test results and we can work together on this

The reverse polarity should have blown at least 1 fuse to prevent further electrical problems, I would start by looking there, replacing blown fuses and then trying to restart.

depending on the type of security system, it is sometimes necessary to re-sync the keyfob to the car after a flat battery on the car or the fob.
this is normally just a matter of turning the key to the IGN position and pressing the button on the key fob. you may have to hold the button for a second or two but this will normally re-sync the system.

if it does not work then you will have to sent more detailed information on the security system. ie factory fitted or aftermarket system with make and type (normally found on the siren unit under the bonnet.

hope this helps

It may be the cable but its hard to say because i dont know the year, make and model of this car, newwer cars use a speed sensor and not a cable so i would start by checking the speedo cable or the speed sensor on the trany, good luck.

First, we will need to know the Year and Model of the Honda you would like to know the fuse for.

Usually, the Fuse cover has a layout of the Fuses inside the Fuse box.
