Hello,
Apa khabar?
Try check your speedometer connection.
It is under your hood. There is a connector to your transmission. If the connector is loosen, your speedometer will go crazy.:)

The connector is pretty deep under the air intake piping. I am not sure if your air intake system is what kinda? Coz I saw some different one when I was in Malaysia. ICQ me if you like to know more.

If the connector is broken the speedo won't work at all and your engine light will come on. Most likely, your speedo is broken (very common on Civics). Go to a junkyard and buy a new guage cluster for under $50. Don't try to buy it from the dealer new. They'll want $500 for it.
