You have to pull the dash pad off the top and pull the gage pod out. Usually the odometer fails due to two plastic gears in it breaking. You can buy these at www.FCPGroton.com for about $25 each. Do them both. Here's a tutorial on the process, it takes about 1 1/2 hours. http://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/2005/01/01/interior-seats-dash-remotes-switches-odometer-fix-how-to/

Volvo gle 850 1996


After I bought my '96 850, I found it had the same problem. In my case the speedometer worked fine, but not the odometer. A little research on the internet revealed that it's a common problem with these models.

There's a motor that drives the odometer separately from the speedometer, and the weak link in the chain is a tiny gear that turns the odometer when the motor runs. That gear is easily broken and even one missing tooth will disable your odometer.

The fix is relatively straight-forward, but requires you to remove the instrument panel and disassemble it in order to get to the motor housing and the broken gear. You won't have any trouble finding replacement parts on eBay that are much better made and will last you the rest of the life of the car. The difficulty level on this is about medium, but be careful when you've got the instrument panel disassembled; I wasn't cautious enough and ended up with a couple of my indicators out of alignment; my tachometer read zero when it was idling, and my fuel gauge only went up to 17 gallons when it was full, so I had to take it all apart again to reposition the gauges to get them to read correctly.

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.

Part number for electic motor t5hat turns odometer 1994 volvo 850 turbo


What you probably need are the two gears that actually sit inder that motor. Those are the usual culprits when your odometer fails. There are 2 and they are around $25 each and can be purchased from www.fcpgroton.com . Do them both or you'll be tearing your dash back apart to get the other one within 6 months of fixing the first one. The whole process takes 1 to 1 1/2 hours to complete. Here's a good tutorial on it: http://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/2005/01/01/interior-seats-dash-remotes-switches-odometer-fix-how-to/

How do I change out a non working odometer/trip meter?


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

No dash lights


THE SWITCH SHOULD BE THE SAME FOR 93-97 AND THE REOSTAT DIMER SWITCH CIRCUIT SHOULD BE CHECKED AND AS FAR AS SPEEDOMETER IS CONCERNED IT MUST BE REPLACED FROM A 94OR 95 AND 96 AND 97 ARE DIFFERENT CLUSTERS
