How to Read 1996-1997 Volvo 850 Mileage with an ELM327

MVS Forums Contributor esl_97_850_T5¬†¬†explains in clear instructions how to get actual miles from a late 850 using a Bluetooth ELM 327 unit: “Contrary to conventional wisdom here and on other Volvo sites, the mileage of the 1996 and 1997 Volvo 850 cars can be read from the COMBI (Instrument Panel computer) using an ELM327 device. It does not require a Volvo Scan Tool (VST) or other high cost scanner.”

If you have an ELM327 v1.4 or higher, and if you can already use the ELM327 to communicate with the Volvo 850 to obtain the emission diagnostics DTCs via the ELM327 commands:
