I've just had the tow bar and wiring on my '93 Honda Accord installed. It's a 5 spd manual transmission. I have only towed it home from the hitch shop, but it seems that the odometer racks up miles eventhough the transmission is in neutral. It has the old style analog odometer, not digital. Is disconnecting the speedometer cable the only way to stop this?

My 1st toad was a '93 Honda Accord automatic transmission. I had to pull a fuse under the hood to disable the odometer and possibly other systems.

I'm surprised. My 92 Accord automatic transmission toad didn't rack up mileage. No fuses were pulled.

Also, my 03 Accord AT tows without mileage build up.
