Question about 1994 Volvo 940

Instrument Panel won't light

All of the sudden, my instrument panel on my 1994 Volvo 940 wagon won't light. In addition, the left blinker indicator stays on when the head light are on and dims and fades with the reostat (as the instrument panel should). I've already checked fuse 21 and it is fine. How do I go about finding the problem?

Your instrument panel it is about difference in electrical flow in the left blinker indicator and the right circuit.If you replace your bulbs per one instead of per pair then there is mostly a difference in electrical resistance in both bulbs and your head lights are always from same age then it could be that there is corrosion in one of the bulbs holder, start with replacing the bulbs and to check if there is corrosion, it was a bad contact due to erosion .

Odometer does not work


This is a common problem with all models of volvo, with the non digital odometer  pre 1998,, there is a tiny nylon gear deep inside the odometer that needs to be replaced. Your dealer will not fix it, but will put in a new one for you as the cost of fixing in labour is more than a new one,, My solution is much cheeper,, I have
many low milage VOLVO odometer/instr clusters, a few hi'r km 1s


ODOMETERS FROM 1987-PRESENT
I have many pre 1998 Volvo instrument clusters, most with Very low milage, almost all in Km, I have most models of Volvo.

at these prices IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE AN EXTRA ONE , comes with detailed instructions -with pictures-on how to remove your old one and re-install

just for example
I have 4,, 1994-1997 850/s70/v70 /c70turbo with less than 10,000 km
2 1994-1997 850/s70/v70/c70 non turbo with less than 10,000 km
1 1990 740 -940 turbo with less than 4.000 kms

I also have many Volvo instrument clusters from 1987 to PRESENT with varied milage,,let me know what year and model and milage you are looking for,, I will have something close
