Erratic speedometer on Honda Civic

Fix Erratic speedometer on Honda Civic

Speedometer erratic, blows fuse, charging system intermittent on Honda Civic P0135, P0141, P1128, P1297

Shops report that a chaffed wiring harness near the bottom of the intake manifold can short out the Black/yellow or black/white wires causing fuse #15 to blow repeatedly. It can also cause the speedometer to move erratically and the charging system to work intermittently. Inspect the wiring harness near that area and fix the chaffed wires to correct the problem. The problem is found on 1996-2000 Honda Civics with the 1.6-liter engine.
