'82 Volvo 240 remove speedometer cable? I can turn the little plastic nut until it hits the stop, but the cable does not pull out. How hard must I pull the cable to remove it from the speedometer?


Grab and pull hard. Years of rust/dirt accumulation could hold it fast. Most I am aware of use threaded nuts that must be unscrewed all the way.

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.

82 240 volvo dies when it gets warm and it wont start until its cool again.????


Thermostat probably. Not opening to allow new coolant into engine. Coolant/Antifreeze works both ways it's freezing point and boiling point. So degraded coolant could be another option.

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.
