Default Engine help needed!!!

Okay, I warmed up the car this morning before driving it (cold here in Williams Lake B.C.) then headed out to work. I stopped at the stop sign and was taking off when I changed gears from 2nd to 3rd and as I hit 6000rpm the Vtec kicked in then at the exact moment it kicked in it kicked out and now it does not work. Was aquick "blip" of vtecthen nothing.Also the speedo isn't reading anymore.. Weird..
I will check the oil and fuses on my lunch, does anyone know what else it could be? Maybe a knock sensor or a vtec solenoid?? BAHhh Help needed!!! Will update after lunch.

OH!!! Also when I was passing I was holding the pedal to the floor and it started to spike on me. (this was at around 4-5000rpm) The rev's were fluctuating between 4-6g, up and down radically. It kind of sounded like a 1ga dsm hitting a pre-set rev limiter. So I let off the gasoline and held it at 70% and it ran fine. 5 more mins down the road I opened it up again but it did not spike and still no Vtec... Maybe the wiring is hokey?? sigh... I Don't know!!! Any suggestions??
