Question about 1991 Volvo 740

1 Answer

My '91 Volvo odometer works occasionally it will be working for a short while and then sinks down to "0". I have been told it is a gear that needs to be replaced. I have been told to try and find the whole panel and replace it from another old Volvo or to pay to have the repair done which takes several hours of labor. Any thoughts???

The odometer usually is connected to one of your front wheels so you can try to take it out yourself and replace it the same way in reverse. You can ask the Volvo dealer where that might be at on your car.

Engine service required message


If you want to reset the light/message:

Close all the doors, booth, hood etc. hatches,

1. Make sure you have Trip odometer 1 (T1) selected.
2. Turn the ignition key to 'I'-position.
3. Press the trip odometer reset - keep it down.
4. Turn the key to 'II'.
5. Wait till the service light blinks a few times or you hear a 'beep'.
6.Release the trip odometer reset.
7. Turn the key back to '0' - service light is reset.

If this doesn't work, try:
a) 2. before 3. then continue as above
b) 5. Wait until the previous mileage appears again to the trip odometer.
c) 7. before 6.

You can reset the service counter at any time. Do not forget to service your car!

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.

The odometer reading disappeared on my '98 Volvo S70.


Have you found anything out. I brought my volvo in to have the battery replaced and when I picked it up I noticed the odometer was blank (no -----) just blank. I was told it was not related and probably just a bulb. Not a bulb I have no idea. I don't want to replace the cluster unless I'm sure what have you found out. (all my other gauges are fine speed, tach, trip fine)

Odometer quit working

Odometer is turned by a mechanical gear wheel, which is the likely culprit.
