Exclamation Acura Legend RL 3.5 (1998)

I live in Southampton, United Kingdom, and I have recently bought an Acura Legend RL 3.5, year of manufacture 1998.

Everything was going fine until the speedometer and milometer packed up.

Does anyone have any experience of this and able to advise on the best way to repair the fault please? Am happy to discuss via e-mail.

I am keen to get the car working for the winter as my other car, a sports car is not good on icy roads - low profile tyres.

Many thanks

Susan Laverick

Welcome to the forum Susan, sounds like the VSS needs to be replaced.

Acura Legend RL 3.5 1998 reg - no speedo

Thank you for your reply Bigboy!! That was quick.

Where is the VSS situated? in the gearbox (I have an automatic gearbox) in which case will it will have to go to an automatic transmission/gearbox specialist.

What is the general cause of a VSS failing please?

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best wishes and thank you

Susan

It is something you can DIY. It's located near the transmission. You will need a jack and jack stands to perform the job safely.

Dear Bigboy

Thanks for your reply.

So I need to go to a Honda agent to order a new VSS or do you know of any other source that I can get one from, UK only (I assume you are not in the UK).

Thank you for your help so far.

Just a thought do you know if there is a UK manual for my car please?

Many thanks

Susan
