Question about 2003 Volvo XC70

1 Answer

Dash instrument cluster works intermittently

My 2003 XC70 has a problem whereby the instrument cluster works intermittently. It can be very off putting especially at night when the dash goes dark.
Volvo dealers reckon its a new dash at £700 but I've been told I could get a reconditioned one but have had no luck in finding one a supplier that provides this service.
It was also mentioned to me that a "green cap" is all I require but I'm having no luck here also.
Any help or suggestions would be gratefully received

    Totally unpredictable. The gauges go to zero and all of the trouble lights in the lower right flash on. A milli second of all dials swining to off and then back on.

Try www.bba-reman.com
based in taunton, ma (I believe they also have other locations worldwide) they can re-manufacture your cluster unit for a VERY reasonable price!

My speedometer works but my digital odometer does not work on my 2003 old alero


This is one guy's advice: Replace the speedo head, that should take care of the problem."

This site is also interesting because the guy said
General Motors cars had instrument cluster problems from 2003 through 2006. When I researched instrument cluster problems on the Internet what I found raised concerns in me. Many of those vehicles had problems that began with the instrument cluster, but eventually led to the engine refusing to start.
(an electronic instrument cluster, digital instrument panel or digital dash for short, is a set of instrumentation, including the speedometer, that is displayed with a digital readout rather than with the traditional analog gauges. Many refer to it simply as a digital speedometer.)

2005 explorer sport trac instrument cluster and odometer intermittent failure?


Pull the instrument cluster out of the dash check all the connectors to it for loose pins and also take a look at the printed circuit on the back of the panel, look for any obvious problems. More than likely just pulling the connectors and reinserting them several times may cure this problem.

sounds like the instrument cluster is failing or you have a loose wire issue. The dash will need be opened up to inspect the connector for proper voltage.
Modulemaster.com can rebuild the cluster but the car will out of service for a week or 2. This is just an option over the high price the dealer will want.
