Speedometer speed sensor location different from 1995 & 1996 modules

Just to warn you if you live in a state (like PA) that has inspections, if you go to a parts store to get your codes erased, the codes still show in the computer and you wont pass inspection. You have to take it to the dealer and spend $$$ to have it erased from the cpu. This is for 96 and newer volvos. This is why I stick to rwd redblock bricks

The speedometer and gas gauge does'nt work


The two meters have in common their connection to the instrument panel. So, let's check for a loose plug. Try to reach back of instrument panel from under dash to check for it.

If nothing found there, check speed sensor/gas gauge circuits for blown fuses, open circuits and broken wires.

Keep me posted.

Good Luck!!

Engine swap 1985 240 DG into 1983 Volvo 245

Go ahead and swap the transmissions, and that should be about it. The b230 and b23 engines are basically the same block, so there should be no trouble there.
