There is a small trim between the steering wheel collum surround & the speedo clocks (the trim with the small piece of immitation leather material attached), this is only clipped in and can be removed with a flat screw driver, once this is removed you will be able to see two small torx headed screws at the bottom of the clocks, once you have removed these screws the speedo clocks will be free to pull out, once the clocks are free there should be two multi plugs on back of speedo, to remove this type of multi plug you have to push the purple lever on plug up & out, then you can completely remove the speedo head.

There is a gear that drives the sensor gear much like the old speedo cable gear.
If you connected the sensor and the check engine light went off, chances are the sensor is working.

Hi, I have a volvo 740 made in belgium 1991 model. The speedomete spent a few months fluctuating wildly, sometimes working well, sometimes not at all, sometimes stuck on 140 km per hour. The odometer...


There should be a speedo sensor on the transmission somewhere. I don't know exactly where it is located. I believe your speedo is all electrical so the sensor on the transmission sends a signal to the speedo head. You can go onto some parts stores websites and see if one is listed for it, if it is, I would try replacing that first. I don't think the part should be more then $50 or $60 but you never know with Volvo. Good luck.

Everything works on dash but clock speedo and tack could a speed sensor fix the problem


no, because the tach uses a different sensor than the speedo. You probably have a connector issue. Is the clock on the same panel? See if you can reach behind and push on the connector. If you want wiring diagram, let me know and I'll see if I can find it.

I have 2 wires coming from the positive battery terminal. The first wire goes underneath the car to the starter. The second wire is separated at what appears to be a fuse link which goes into the drivers...


Hi, this second wire is a permanent live feed for inside the car, the things it runs are things like the stereo all its their for is so the stereo dont lose any stations that you have stored into the memory other than that their isnt much else it runs, maybe the clock, you could check by seeing what isnt working when the key is out, check the clock and stereo, if the stereo works with the key out then it must have its own live feed.

the chances are it wont work and you will lose the preset saved stations.

i hope that has given you some idea of what its for.

please let me know if you need further assistance.

plz can you rate this post as i have pages of unrated posts, thanks

Speedo reads slower than actual speed by about 8%


I fixed it. You just need to physically move the speedo hand anticlockwise. Be careful though.
