    have you had a look on Lings Honda with your reg number to see if a speed sensor is listed. However as a slight deviation on thoughts, if there was a faulty speed sensor, surely this would upset the ABS and put a light on for it. You can remove the _pfk from the address bar and it will give you the actual part numbers for the speed sensor, which can then be used to cross reference ebay. I would Also try Holdcroft Honda and H-Tune as they may be able to help out.

    The only thing that concerns me is that its had an engine chance. I don't know if the H22A5 engine bares any similarities to the H22A7 in terms of sensors and I couldn't say if any of the wiring loom has been butchered and if the ECU has be swapped out for the Prelude one.

    @Harvey raises some good points.

    What happens if you unplug the speed sensor ?
