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!
