Roy7777 - there is nothing metal that is broken to solder in this situation.

over time, the plastic gear that drives the odometer and trip meter gets brittle and will break a few teeth if you push the trip reset button with the car moving.

you have to remove the cluster, but after that, it is a pretty straight forward repair. you can get the replacement gear from ipd or fcpgroton, ipd has an available DVD with step by step instructions if you buy the gear from them: http://ipdusa.com/product.asp?strParents=&CAT_ID=0&P_ID=406&strPageHistory=search&numSearchStartRecord=1

sure beats ~$300 for the dealer to send off the speedometer for "refurbishing"

This has been a problem with VOLVO especially the 850 models what happens is the plastic senssor inside the speedometer breaks off and it will tell you the road speed but ODOMETER AND TRIP METER will not work and the only way to fix it is to take the cluster out and sometimes it can be soldered back in place or get a used cluster and replace the unit sorry but it is not a simple fix

Odometer stopped working


How many miles are on this vehicle? I ask because the odometers in these car stop working around the 140k to 170k mark. Did the button comeback? Is this the mileage on the digital or analog trip meter?
The process to change the odometer gear is fairly straight forward and takes less than $20 and an hour. Let me know.

ODOMETER DOES NOT WORK . has same milage since i brought 1 month ago i have 95 volvo 850 wagon glt


Have the same car in the saloon version with the same problem. Apparently it's common with Volvos. Probably it's a gear on the odometer that's broken. Do a search on google for this problem and you will find step by step guides on how to fix it yourself and where to buy the part.

MY 1995 VOLVO 850 TURBO STATION WAGON IS HAVING PROBLEM STARTING. ON THE DASH BOARD AN ARROW IS POINTING TO THE BATTERY. IS IT THAT SIMPLE TO IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM. PLUS THE CAR HAS BEEN SITTING FOR A YEAR...


If a car has been sitting for that long then the battery is going to be bad 90% of the time. Get a new battery and put some fresh gas in and you will on the road,.when you go to the parts store have them check the old battery to make sure but I bet that it is bad.

Hello, We had the same problem about a year ago: 1996 Volvo 850 20V 2.5 L. We turned the ignition switch several times, and all the gauges was came back. I think the ignition switch cause the problem. We haven't had this problem since than.

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


ODOMETERS FROM 1987-PRESENT
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

WILL SHIP ANYWHERE IN N.AMERICA
