Question about 1992 Volvo 960

Open Question

My speedometer has begun working intermittently.

The speedometer has begun working intermittently on my 1992 Volvo 960. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it reads 0 or 70 no matter the speed. Sometimes is jumps around and sometimes it reads about 30 MPH higher than I'm driving. A friend suggested the cable may be bad. How do I replace the cable and/or speedometer.

Two questions: Is your odometer working? If not then it's probably a broken gear by the stepper motor that Emissionwiz mentioned. Is your ABS and/or TRACS light on intermittently or constantly. If so that is a common sign your ABS control module has gone or is going bad. This usually happens before the speedometer starts acting up. Either one of these will start intermittently and finally end up with the speedometer not functioning at all, and both are pretty common failures with this model.

1994 Volvo 940T Speedometer Works Intermittently


If the speedometer and odometer are not working the problem is usually lack of signal from the transmission speed sensor.
But if the cruise control works and the speedometer does not, my guess would be a problem inside the cluster.

1992 Volvo 240 odometer stopped working but the speedometer works


There is a gear in the speedometer that is stripped and is causing the odometer to stop working. You can get a replacement gear from Odometer Gears (Jeff Caplan) 757-593-3478. You will need special tools to replace these gears, so you may want to take the speedo or the car to a speedometer shop.

1992 volvo 960 - flashing arrow & mode lights happens occaisionally. Do I have to do immediate repairs?


I'd get this looked at immediately, it's not the sort of thing that will go away. I'd start by checking fluid levels in the box.

After the shop worked on my 92 volvo 960 the radio is asking for a code. Where do I get the code if I do not have a manuel?


The code should be on the back of the radio, usually. If it's not there you might be able to have the code looked up using the vin at a dealer.....if it is the original factory radio that is.
