Headlights wont work


According to my wiring diagram, the headlight switch works a relay which is powered by two different fuses.
I would check the relay for voltage first.
You may need a repair manual to trace the circuits.

1992 Volvo 240 odometer stopped working but the speedometer works


There is a gear in the speedometer that is stripped and is causing the odometer to stop working. You can get a replacement gear from Odometer Gears (Jeff Caplan) 757-593-3478. You will need special tools to replace these gears, so you may want to take the speedo or the car to a speedometer shop.

The horn on my volvo 240 doesnt work. Theres no power by the horn, so i took of the steeringwheel. And no power there either. The fuse is ok and power on both sides of it. So is there a relay somewhere...


Most likely yes, you nailed it. But it might be just unplugged. Look for a small metal box on the firewall or fenders of engine compartment. Often they are near the horn, if I had a Volvo 240, I'd be able to tell you exactly where, sorry.

My speedometer stops working sometimes


Sounds like a loose fitting behind the dashboard cluster. Stop knocking on it and remove the dash and take a look before you really case some jostling damage in other instruments.

Speedometer of 1987 Volvo 240DL only works at half the actual speed of travel or less than half.


I just realized, you have an 87 that uses a speed sensor instead of a cable. You should have the mechanic check the sensors to see if they need to be cleaned or changed out.
