Electrical problem
1998 Volvo S70 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 142000 miles

My speedometer works on and off, changed out the instrument cluster, still only works once in while. I think it may be vehicle speed senor (VSS) somewhere in transaxle. Please send me a good diagram/picture and other identifing items of the location of this sensor. Matt, from your outfit sent me a picture that I can't make-out. Thanks

Engine is not a turbo

I have the same exact problem and replaced the vss with a oem sensor. I am still having the same problem. What else can possibly be wrong?

I also failed to mention that I have an abs problem too. Can this be related? My traction control light is on and the abs light. Otherwise everthing else on the car runs great. I have 180,000 miles on it and it will still crack 130mph like a cheetah. Lol
