I go to a junk yard in North Carolina that has a few 740's-- I also have a working one that is out, but the speedometer is not working. They are somewhat hard to find--I got one recently for $35. I think I saw a few others. Let me know if I can help. C

Became a member of the 300,000 mile club and was nearing 400,000 and the odometer and trip meter quit working. ironically, the dash lights went out also .other instruments are working.


Your odometor should continue to track miles and as led displayed Odometers and dash lights receive voltage on same line from headlight switch take it in for the dash lights and 400,000 mile club look out.

Battery is boiling. Dash board instruments are swinging to the extreme right.


I have only ever seen this once before, when an alternator was repaired, badly. The rectifier pack inside the alternator is supposed to dump excess power, if it cannot (it fails or its earth connection is poor) it delivers lots of Alternating Current to the battery. Replace the alternator, a used one from a scrapyard will do.

Stuck odometer - how do I fix- speedometer works fine and cruise control too.


Since everything else is still working, your odometer just crapped out. This is very common on the Vics/ Marquis that utilize the mechanical style odometer. I've had two of them (1989 and 1991 Grand Marquis) where the odometer failed. You will need to remove the odometer from the instrument cluster and either replace it with a new unit (good luck with that) or send it out to be repaired. There's a guy that does this specific type of repair, search the Internets and you'll find him.

Side note: Since it was only the main and not trip odometer that failed on my two Panthers, I learned my lesson the second time around and just kept track of my mileage using my trip odometer and a pen and paper in the glove box. A lot easier than tearing the dash apart at the time. If it happened now on my current car ('94 Vic LX), I would fix it. It's not a really hard repair if you know what you're doing or can find someone who does to give you a hand.

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
