SOURCE: hit a bump in the road , speedometer , tact ,went dead

Wonder about your stoplight, taillight? Most of that stuff runs off the accessories fuse. Check that fuse to see if it is blown. If it is, replace it and see what happens. If it blows immediatly, you've got a dead short somewhere. If it stays there, you may have an intermittent short. The intermittant short is a bear to find because it's tough to fix a problem when it ain't there. Electrical problems are always difficult and this about the best information I can give you. It's a starting point.

Good Luck
Steve

Sounds like you blew the "accessories" fuse. Look behind the triangular plate on the left side of the bike. If you replace it and it continues to blow, disconnect the power wire from all these devices you have listed. If it no longer blows, reconnect the power, one device at the time until it again blows the fuse. The device that blows the fuse is the one with the problem.

Good Luck

Hi Anonymous, before you run out and by a new speedometer check every connection in the speedometer circuit, look for corroded, broken or loose pins using a dab of dieltric grease repair as necessary. For a free wiring diagram please visit website below:

1994 940 Volvo wagon turbo has intermittent electrical problems. Blinker on dash stays lit. Dash lights go out but will come back. Radio stopped working then both radio and CD player stopped working all...


It truly sounds like a loose or faulty/corroded ground wire. Almost 99% of the electrical problems I have experienced with Volvo's are loose wire related. There are a number of ground wires underneath the hood grounding the engine. However my first suspect would be the connections on the alternator and battery.

Hope this helps.

My check engine light comes on and my speedometer and odometer stop working until I hit a bump and then they start working


Hi, I can tell you that I was having a simular problem with my 2001 Chevy Silverado. The check engine light would come on and I lost both the speedometer and odometer. I also lost gas gauge, and oil pressure gauge.I would hit a bump and they would start working, but light would stay on. I bought the obd-2 meter to read codes and erase them so the light went off. This continued for 8 months. Finally, I started moving wires around under dash when gauges stopped and they would come on and off? Took me right to the circuit board on the ignition switch. I mean I tried everything possable to solve this and told a G.M. mechanic. He said I was right that it would be the switch and that most of you're wires that go to gauges and speedometer come from the ignition switch. I changed it and it has been fine since. You might try what I did see if you can do this while driving, i don't no, but if so be carful on the road. You may need to take it in also.There is something loose a ground wire or hot doing this. I would bet it is in the ignition switch. Best of luck,

Sounds like your car doesn't like bumps!

The abs control modules on these fail regularly due to breaks in the circuit board solder joints. It could be that hitting the bump make the fault occur. There are places that will repair them, however you will need to remove it, or have it removed and send it to them to fix it, or you can replace it.

Either way, you'll need to get the problem diagnosed first., starting by reading out the faults in all the systems. The transmission, cruise control and speedometer all rely on a vehicle speed sensor signal from the abs module, so that is why so many systems are affected.
