Only junkyard. This part is discontinued, and there are no other parts that are compatible.

You have the mechanical version which is even worse to try to find.

If you need a speedo cable... Napa part #BK6151695 Balkamp one piece cable for Accord. Works great. Was around 50 bucks US.... 70ish Canadian.

Again, I reiterate my response, There are no new VSS sensors for our cars. All junkyard parts.

Hey Stace963... sorry got the price wrong, Speedo cable is $29.19 US dollars. I see you are in Australia. If your having a hard time getting these parts let us know and Logan will pick them up and send them out to you.

Everyone is failing to touch on the fact that this part shown and described is only the mechanical speed sensor for the power steering system. If the engine control unit is throwing a code 17 - Vehicle Speed Sensor, the problem is probably the electronic pulser in the gauge cluster. It might be the cable, but they don't break very often, and are easily tested. The pulser, though, is probably going to require replacement of the gauge cluster.

Yes, all part of the process of troubleshooting. 1 step at a time.

Fair to say, if the Odometer still counts, its NOT the cable..... Correct? Thats what mine does, Odometer works, but speedo is intermittant sometimes, so I am just living with it.....

Logan`s 88 SI 4ws started with an intermittant speedo throwing a code 17. Then it quit. Ended up being a broken speedo cable. I guess the frayed wire cable was occasionally grabbing itself. The 2 piece cable can slowly unscrew itself, or walk itself out of the tranny if the pin takes a hike. Also the guage cluster.. How do know its the VSS for sure?
