Maybe you have a blown bulb on the cluster - please try shining a torch at the display at an angle - can you make out the numbers then?

The dashboard display is not visible on LH side. Any ideas

blown bulb need replacing, you did not provide maker or model, therefore no detailed instructions - but you need to lift dashboard and replace blown bulb.

Odometer flickrs and will not stay steady when engaged

Do you mean the Speedometer or the mileometer? If its the speedometer and it is driven by a wire cable it is probably dry (no grease), Kinked or the square that it fits in is worn (either end) or the drive has a tooth off it in the gearbox. If it is an electric drive then probably either a wire shorting or the sender unit. If you mean the mileometer is flicking then this could be due to someone has clocked the mileage back and not done it properly (new clock I'm afraid)

1986 Porsche 944. Instruments not working

Sounds like a possible fuse problem. Have you checked your fuses yet. If not look in your owners manual to see which fuse(s) control your instrument panel, or anything else you are having trouble with. Keep in mind, if a short did occur for some reason, more than one fuse may be blown. When i accidental crossed two door lock wires, i blew 6 fuses, some of which were not even related to the wires i crossed. Hope this helps

Speedo has suddenly stopped working also the mileometer has also stopped? please help

If you can hear it while your driving its the speedo and not the cable. Replace speedometer or whole gauge cluster.( What ever is easyer) You can find one on ebay. It could also be the speedo sensor on the top back half on the engine. REAL EXPENSIVE! Even for a used one. About $150 bucks for the sensor. And about the same for the Cluster.

No power to radio or ashtray light

yeah the main ashtray light and stereo light fuses are normally located in the cab of the car under the dashboard you should also find that the interior light is not working as this is part of the same link. these fuse boxes can be in some obscure places such as the pillar which is only only visible while the door is open, or under the acctual dashboard.
