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.

This problem is caused by the tiny DC drive motor that moves the needle (known as a stepper motor), it is defective, replace or have the speedo repaired.

Sounds like the electronic sensor in the transmission is either loose or going bad. It determines your speed. No more speedometer cables.

96 Volvo 850 Turbo. Both headlights went out but the high beams work if I hold the switch back. Turn lights and running lights still work. Dash lights glitch slightly as well


there is a head lamp switch mounted to the steering column. it has died. to access it you have to remove the cover under the dash. remove the four bolts hold the steering column and let it drop down. find the switch usually behind and to the side of the ignition switch. there will be a rod giong to it from the handle. remove and replace the switch and assemble in reverse order

Mileage does not to work on the speedometer (97 850 T5)


Hi
most likely the mechanism has failed at the back of the instrument panel, Its not digital is it? just normal type. also sometimes the speedo cable pull back slightly into the dash the speed will still show but if it is not tight up against the back panel then sometimes the miles will not turn. You will have to remove the clocks to be sure.

Regards

Dan

My Volvo 94 850 odometer stop working, I bought


There are actually two gears that you need to replace, a large one and then smaller one that rides inside it. You can purchase them both at www.fcpgroton.com These can also sometimes affect the operation of your speedometer. Do you by chance have an ABS and TRACS light on? If so the speedometer issue may be related to your ABS controller.

Speedometer Conversion


Multiply anything you see on the speedo by 6, and drop the 0

40km = 24mph
50km = 30mph
60km = 36 mph
70km = 42mph
80km = 48mph
yada...yada... 100km - 60
EX and cheap!
