When the dashboard lights in your vehicle malfunction or cease to operate, the resulting effects can range from being a mere annoyance to posing a safety hazard. Locating the problem and finding a remedy is essential. To fix dashboard lights that won't light, follow these suggestions
Evaluate the problem methodically. Begin the process by trying the simplest of solutions first. Most vehicles have a dashboard lights control switch that will dim the dashboard lights, as well as turn them off. Check the control switch, which should be located on the console near the steering column, make sure its in the correct position to have the lights on.
Check the dashboard light fuse. A blown fuse can disable the vehicle's dashboard light. The fuse box may be under the hood, or on the floor, near the brake pedal, or there may be 2 fuse boxes in both places. Refer to the diagram on the fuse box cover to locate the correct fuse. Replace the dashboard light fuse if necessary.
If all of the above don't fix it, then replace your light switch.
Did you check you fuse panel? It's located on the driver side. Open your door and pull the plastic trim piece on the inside of the dashboard. Check through your fuse diagram until you find sunroof fuse, check to see if its blown. If it is replace it. If not Volvo has a hard reset technique for Volvo electronics, lock and unlock your volvo 3 times. This problem is usually associated with other small problems though, like interior light not working.
This is a control problem usually with a vacumn air supply system.
Check under the hood for any small cracked hoses and loose fitting
hoses on thier connectors. The other control hoses are behind the
dashboard and not easily accessable. You go into the dash or find
someone who can.
test the lighter socket itself by putting a everyday common voltage tester or "multi-meter"in it. place the positive wire on the tester to the center of the socket and the negative to the side of the socket. if no voltage reading, keep the positive where it is and move the negative probe on your tester to a new location that you "know" is a negative like a screw on the door jam area. ( find an unpainted surface"). if you get a reading now then you know the negative on the socket is not connected somewhere in the path. do the same with the positive..... good luck.
