Question about Volvo 850
Odometer not reading .stopped suddenly...
If the odometer stopped but it shows speed it is not the cable. There is a small plastic gear in the speedometer which will strip if you reset the trip odometer while the car is moving. Any speedo shop can repair it

Your problem is NOT a fuse. The speedometer receives an electronic signal from an analogue transmitter mounted in the rear differential. It's the little button in the rear diff with two wires attached to it. Check to see if the wiring is chaffed or broken. If not, then it's probably the transmitter. A competent mechanic should be able to replace one for less than 200.00, parts and labor. If this does not fix it, then the problem is in the head, which can be expensive. You might get a used head if you can get a 90 day guarrantee on the part from the salvage company.

the Speedo in your car is electronic, the problem is the tiny motor that moves the needle is most likely defective, there are no parts for the Speedo available to the consumer from Ford, you must remove the Speedo and have it repaired by a authorized Speedo repair shop. here is a link to a good one I know about.

Your speed sensor has failed. The vehicles speedometer is not cable controled, it's controled by a sensor in your transmission. It's a easy fix, but the new sensor is about $80 to $100 depending on where you get it.
