Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. Do you have a multimeter to do some electrical checks?

Great. Give me a few to look over the wiring diagram and give you something to check.

Reminder, I have not been paid at this point and won't be until I receive a positive rating from you. At that point I will receive a portion of what you've already paid Just Answer.

You will need to jack the front end of the vehicle up for this check. Turn the ignition switch ON. With the VSS connector plugged up to the sensor you need to back probe the Blue/White wire. This is the input. Block the passenger wheel so only the driver's wheel turns. Before turning the wheel you should see either 5 or 10 volts on this wire. When you start turning the wheel by hand the voltage should fluctuate. This indicates that the sensor signal is changing with the wheel rotation. If the voltage stays consistently on 5 or 10 volts this means that the sensor signal is bad. I would replace the sensor. If the sensor you installed was not a Honda, but some sort of aftermarket brand I would replace it. Aftermarket sensors don't seem to hold up quite well. Let me know what you find.

You can go ahead and rate me positively. Don't worry, there aren't additional charges for posting questions to this thread after you rate so we can keep chatting. Thanks!

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
