The odometer reading disappeared on my '98 Volvo S70.
My 1998 Volvo S70 has only 77k miles. I replaced my battery and immediately noticed the odometer reading (Digital) disappeared. The trip meter and all other readings still work. I first thought that this was a part of the code needed for the radio, however, that is not the case. Is there some code or step by step process needed after changing a battery. I was told by my mechanic that there is no connection at all between the battery change and the odometer reading being lost. It seems so logical though, since one was done and the other action happened.
Re: The odometer reading disappeared on my '98 Volvo S70.
Have you found anything out. I brought my volvo in to have the battery replaced and when I picked it up I noticed the odometer was blank (no -----) just blank. I was told it was not related and probably just a bulb. Not a bulb I have no idea. I don't want to replace the cluster unless I'm sure what have you found out. (all my other gauges are fine speed, tach, trip fine)

Depends on Product for Volvo XC60 and Volvo s80 Car must be put into T2 start position. You must have more then .10 of a MILE to utilize this!
First insert key into igniton (DO NOT depress Brake pedal) push button next to key to cut vehicle on. Go to odometer and push button to distinguish between t1 and T2 . Once t2 is on screen yo must depress Both ignition start button and odometer button AT SAME TIME until the "i " information starts to blink.. once it blinks 3 times let go of both start button and Odometer button.
Vehicle will be RESET.
Cut vehicle off before doing anything else. Remove key from ignition.
If you fail to do these steps. Car will not be able to have reset done until you have at least 1 tenth of a mile on the odometer again.
Ho pe this helps.. Volvo charges $65. to rest your car.. maintenance button at most 'stealorships'
Check the battery and alternator wiring connections. Also, check the alternator belt. If it is missing or has no tension, the belt tensioner may be broken. The thumping seems to imply a catastrophic mechanical failure or a small explosion affecting the electrical system, but it may have been unburned fuel igniting in the catalytic converter due to a problem with the engine computer (perhaps it wasn't working right due to the electrical problem).
1) Turn your key to the on position (dash lights will come on) 2) Push the odometer button until the total miles are displayed and keep holding it. 3) Turn the key Off, and then back ON while holding the odometer button in.Don't let up on the button. You will notice the odometer reading shows dashes and they will sequence off. After they sequence off, the Maint Reqd light will go off. Release the odometer button
That just means you're due for an oil change. they automatically come on after 5000 miles. To reset the light, put it on the odometer display in your instrument cluster. turn the key off. now push and hold the odometer/trip reset button while you turn on the key to the IGN position. You will see 5 dashes on the odometer display, which will sequencially disappear and then go back to the odometer when it's done. after your odometer shows again, you can release the odometer/trip reset button and your maintenence light should be off.
I had the same problem and was about to take the car to the dealership tomorrow, but I decided to try disconnecting the battery and see if it would reset itself. When I reconnected the battery the odometer mileage went back to where it was before I changed the battery. It worked!
The resisters on the back of the odometer fell off. they can be re solder if you can find them. That is what happened to mine. i stumbled on video directions on youtube. just pull out you cluster. there are 4 resisters on ther right top side of the of the PC board. if there still there they will be blackend and burned. just roll your finger on them and if they fall off easy there bad. you can buy replacement resistors for like $3 and same your self a $100 to fix or worse. buying a new one. ther resistors i used were 1/2 watt 150Ohm 5% tolerance resistors. and they can be bought from any raido shack. i hope this helps.
