I have a 91 Honda Accord. This is the latest in the car's lifelong ambition
to have everything go wrong at least once.
As I was driving (highway speeds) the speedometer acted up - it went a
little higher (maybe), fluctuated, went to zero, then came back. Well,
another thing to look into, I thought. We stopped and ate.
Then, coming back home, it started doing it again. At the same time, the S
light started blinking. Then the speedometer seemed to correct, but the S
light kept flashing. As it flashed, the engine's power was diminishing. Then
the check engine light came on, and the power came back (like a kick in the
pants). The S light kept flashing, and we made it the short distance back to
Doing a little research made it seem like the problem was the vehicle speed
sensor. When I got the codes, though:
Check Engine - 43
S (TCU) - 4
That doesn't seem to make sense. Some websites show 43 as a fuel delivery
BTW, I don't know if it has any bearing, but the cars battery went low a
couple of days ago and we had a friend jump it (I wasn't there). The battery
seemed to go dead for no reason, although my wife thinks she might have
gotten the seat belt buckle jammed in the door.
Thanks for any insight,
