funguy26 is cool... so far.
Speedo, Odometer, trip, and cruse controll. Not working.

I try looking for some info on what is going on. I know I should have a yellow wire for power, an orange wire for signal, a black for ground. I replaced the VSS.

Now here it gets odd I got a Yellow/white giving 5v, A White/black doing nothing really good chance is the signal, and Green/white for ground. The car is a 92 EX with the 5-speed stick.

P.S. 2 people at a Honda dealer say is a Limited Edition version of the car. Really not sure about that.

Nothing limited about it. 92 EX with a manual is relatively common. If you have techs at the dealer with such detailed expertise, I’d find another dealer!

Anyway, if you can get your hands on a factory service manual, you should be able to get the info you need. Hondahookup.com might still be hosting digital copies. You can find them on amazon or eBay as well.
I don’t have any experience with vss wiring, so I’m not going to attempt a guess in case I mislead you.

fleetw00d is very helpful fleetw00d is very helpful
Just checking - when you replaced the VSS, did you put the pin that transfers rotation from the power steering portion of the VSS to the electrical portion?

what? I check if the drive pin was in place for the sensor. I found there was no voltage from the yellow. wire it to the battery code 17 is gone. but the speedo, Odometer, trip or the cruise don't work.

Here is the diagram for replacement. fleetwood is talking about the 'Joint Shaft' in this picture, if it is missing or broken your VSS will not read your speed.

If you measured from the center yellow pin/wire to the positive battery (+) terminal you should measure zero volts. You need to measure from the center yellow pin/wire to body ground. That means red/positive meter probe on the yellow wire and the black/ground meter probe to a clean body ground or the negative battery (-) terminal.

Yes it appears so. What do you have when you measure from the orange wire/pin to ground?

Ok, I got it working! YAY! what I did was take the EGR plug and plug it in the VSS and take the VSS plug and plug it into the EGR valve.
