Question about 2001 Suzuki Vitara
Is it all your dash lights? There is a dimmer somewhere on your dash that controls all of the dash lights. If it is just the speedometer, then it is most likely the bulb has gone bad, or there is a bad connection. Does it ever flicker? If you check the bulb and it is good, sometimes cleaning up the contacts with a pencil eraser, then cleaning the area with alcohol and a q-tip will fix a bad connection. Hope this helps.

I don't know what is causing this problem, but I know phil140701's answer is completely wrong on two counts. First, 740 Volvos starting at least in 1986 have electronic speedometers and no cable. There is an electronic sensor on the differential which sends a signal to the speedometer cluster. Second, if it were strictly mechanical with a cable then the voltage regulator could have no effect on it at all.
