My 97 volvo was in an accident before i bought it and my speedometer works but my odometer doesn't what or where should i begin looking to fix it


The speedometer works from the speed sensor (top of transmission casing, near engine. The Odometer must run from a cable from the transmission housing toward the firewall and the instrument cluster. The cable is either disconnected, broken or worn. You need the disconnect it and turn it with a drill to see if it works.
Source : I had a mazda where the cable became all rounded up where it connects into the transmission, I had to change the odometer cable. I did however change the speed sensor on my 94 850.

96 volvo 850 speedometer somtimes works then it drops to 0


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.

Odometer & trip meter stopped working.


Hello, We had the same problem about a year ago: 1996 Volvo 850 20V 2.5 L. We turned the ignition switch several times, and all the gauges was came back. I think the ignition switch cause the problem. We haven't had this problem since than.

I Have 1997, 850 Volvo with Intermittent A/C Problem.


Most probably it is the clutch gap on the compressor. I had the same problem on my 1998 V70.

See instructions on how to fix it on the Volvo forum.

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
