Son has a 96 Accord Value model, 160k miles. Yesterday the check engine light came on, the speedometer stopped working and then the car stopped accelerating while driving. All power stays on. If you stop the car and restart it, it will start driving as normal and then does the same thing. Almost as if the car goes into Neutral in the middle of driving, the engine will rev but wont move, until it is shut off and start it again.

Have the codes read but it sounds like you lost the Vehicle speed sensor.
