1:hi i have a stilo 1.2 only bought it last week, when i bought car it was flat now its running and all the lights lit up on the dash now the dash dont work except the airbag light. can anyone help or has anyone come across this on theres 2:i can repair your cluster but you will have to send it to the Netherlands.Further info by PM when you are interested....
It sounds like there's a short in the wiring and I assume dashboard light to mean the lights for your gauges and not the lights for your a/c, fan, heat. You'll have to remove your dash board to get at your gauges and then you'll have to test each wire with a voltmeter for resistance to see which is shorted... I've seen wires that for some reason, will fuse together and short out
I recently purchased a 2002 S60 D5 which had this problem. I am not a Volvo expert so don't know if it could be the same fault, but it sounds identical. No lights, gauges etc, but intermittently and very briefly comes on. Having heard some silly prices for replacement dash and ECU, I had a look. I found 4 poor soldered joints on the dash circuit board (top left processor & heat sink). I cleaned them and re-soldered them, although I had continuity just after cleaning the corrosion. The dashboard has worked perfectly since (3 weeks) . If you try this make sure you disconnect the battery first or you may have the SRS airbag warning light on! (I had to have it re-set at the dealers!!)
The whole process took less than an hour. If you are not electronically savvi get one of your mates who is to have a look..
Start by draining the coolant, disconnect dash board wiring harness from pcm behind kick panels, disconnect eye shaft, unbolt dashboard and remove dash. (Remember to tape steering wheel in place as it might have a clock spring). You might have to remove some trim panel on top of dash or cluster from dashboard to gain access to retaing bolts, disconnect heater hoses from heater core in engine compartment and remove heater core, reverse install.
either a wiring problem or a circuit board problem from behind the clocks.there are 2 type of clocks for this specific model.any reputable bm breakers can sell u 1 4 30-40quid.it will take 5mins to do all u need is a torquescrewdriver.2 small screws at top of clocks just under the top of dash
