    Hi have similar problem with my S60 AWD, the lighted buttons on the steering wheel go intermittently off when it is cold in the winter (below 0 C).
    Disgusting electrical problems like this is the last thing I'd expect of a $50000 car. One thing is for sure, this is my first and last Volvo.

Sounds like your instrument cluster is going bad. Try this site for a remanufactured unit. http://www.bba-reman.com/

Dash lights flicker on and off.


That little wheely thing that you alter the brightness of the display. Spray down both sides of it with WD40 and spin is backwards and forwards to clean the contacts.

If not that, you have a bad connection somewhere and you will need the services of an auto electrician.

Trying to locate where the check engine light is located the bulb is missing and we need to replace but can't locate where it is


use a flashlight and shine it on the dashboard instement panel at an angle.. it is going to be an amber (orange/yellow) color .

You will be required to remove the dash board instrement panel anyways to change the bulb... It will be easier to locate when the panel has been removed from the dash... as then you can shine the light into the back side of the instrement panel and see the amber lense of the service engine light more readily.

Instrument panel lights are nor burning


Lights? more than one? It is extremely improbable that many lights burned at the same time. Jiggle the dashboard dimmer wheel (used for light attenuation adjustment) to see if the lights come back to life. Dimmers, being rheostats, have the nasty habit of burning spots, so they work only at a different location than the burnt spot. Many burnt dashboard lights might be an indication that they got too much voltage. ( Bad voltage regulator). Dashboard lights are placed in the rear of the assembly, and screw right into it. Dashboard must be taken out, and it isnt simple. Purchase a full set of dashboard lights at the car dealer before taking down the dashboard, because you dont want to find out that you dont have the proper bulbs, and the whole dashboard already disassembled.

Inside panel does not light up.Which fuse do I replace and the location. I have the fuse box diagram, but I don't know how to read it.


I’m assuming that you are talking about your instrument panel lights.
First, make sure and check the dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel. It controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness. If it accidently got turned all the way down, you will have no instrument lights.
If that isn’t the problem, the interior fuse box is underneath the dashboard on the driver's side. Remove the fuse box lid by swinging the lid down and pulling it straight out of its hinges.
Fuse number 30 (7.5 amp) controls your instrument lights.
Hope this helps you.

After i start my chevy malibu maxx all the dashboard lights go on, the radio shuts off and the gas gauge goes down to e.it is as if the car has lost power the car does not stall after a few seconds all the...


We had a similar situation. It took the dealer a few days to figure out it was an issue with the wiring harness(es) in the center console - around or behind the transmission shifter.

Dashboard lights went out while braking


the dashboard will be need to be taken apart to change the bulb. A fuse alone won't fix it. Also, the day time running lights are not meant to go off. They are a standard safety feature.

1994 C180. Dashboard lights go almost off when headlights are turned on.


Hi,

The dashboard in the benz c180 is always good and highly illuminated.
I doubt that there may be some problem with the power to the lights present in the dashboard.

And i am sure there are no adjustment for illuminating the dashboard.
you need to call benz service centre for this problem.

Hope my info is useful,
Thanx for using fixya.
Cheers.
