Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 2000 Volvo c70 turbo has a rebuilt trans, engine. Had the car for almost three weeks and now the speedometer shuts off, my odometer reads ---- and red blinking arrow (winter/wet) won't turn off. I've fixed the red blinking arrow once already by turning the car off and then turn it back on as close as on can be without starting the engine, and then shifting from park to drive about fifteen times before turning the engine on. But now that won't work. I really like this car. Always heard Volvo is reliable. How can I fix my speedometer/odometer/red arrow without having to go to a dealership and paying out the ?

You do realize no one ever has to go to a dealer,ever,
even with a new car,you own it,& as you said the dealers
are expensive
What about the couple hundred thousand repair shops that
do the same as a dealer?

SOURCE: 1995 honda accord speedometer and odometer not working

Sounds like either your speedometer cable, your nylon gear on the side of the tranny where the cable ties in, or the odometer itself is shot. One of those three will set you straight. If you are able, remove the cluster, take the cable off the back, and pull it out of the sheath. You will see if its broken or not from there. If not, slide it back into the sheath, then you have to find out where the sheath meets the tranny, and pull it off of there. Then, you can get someone else to watch the speedo as you turn the cable from the bottom. If it works, great, if not, then its your cluster/odometer/speedo. If it does work, the small gear in the transmission is shot.

How do i turn engine managment light off plz on a volvo c70

  • 1

    Place the key in the ignition and move the key to Position I.

  • 2

    While keeping the key at Position 1, press and hold the reset button for the trip odometer. You will find that button located where the speedometer is.

  • 3

    While still holding the button for the trip odometer, move the key to Position II.

  • 4

    At this point, wait until the service light is flashing, it should take about 5 seconds for this to occur. When it hits its 3rd or 4th flash, move the key back to Position I.

  • 5

    Release the button for the trip odometer. Next, start the car and you will notice the service light should be reset. If not, try it again. It may take more than one time to get this light reset. Good Luck!

    Can't find a test for the vehicle speed sensor.

    The bad news is the only part that is connected to all of these is the ECM or computer.

    Check engine light on, Brake and ABS lights illuminate, speedometer fails and odometer goes to dashes. The problem is intermittent but happening daily, turning the car off and then back on seems to reset...

    to make sure, you would have to have the vehicle scanned with Volvos' Vida scanner. However, the most common problem is usually the control unit.

    Odometer does not work

    This is a common problem with all models of volvo, with the non digital odometer  pre 1998,, there is a tiny nylon gear deep inside the odometer that needs to be replaced. Your dealer will not fix it, but will put in a new one for you as the cost of fixing in labour is more than a new one,, My solution is much cheeper,, I have
    many low milage VOLVO odometer/instr clusters, a few hi'r km 1s

    I have many pre 1998 Volvo instrument clusters, most with Very low milage, almost all in Km, I have most models of Volvo.

    at these prices IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE AN EXTRA ONE , comes with detailed instructions -with pictures-on how to remove your old one and re-install

    just for example
    I have 4,, 1994-1997 850/s70/v70 /c70turbo with less than 10,000 km
    2 1994-1997 850/s70/v70/c70 non turbo with less than 10,000 km
    1 1990 740 -940 turbo with less than 4.000 kms

    I also have many Volvo instrument clusters from 1987 to PRESENT with varied milage,,let me know what year and model and milage you are looking for,, I will have something close
