SOURCE: volvo s80 dashboard fault

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..

SOURCE: Have new mirror, need to know how to replace the side mirror on a 2003 Volvo S80 TR6

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

SOURCE: My 2003 Volvo S80 cruise control workds sporadically.

On my 2002 S80 T6, the problem is the brake booster diaphragm position sensor's failure (Volvo 2002 S80 T6 part #31261486--other years, models might be different). This is essentially a piston-driven potentiometer that tells the cruise control system when you've applied the brakes, signaling it to switch off control of the throttle. It's mounted on the back of the brake booster with a wire circlip. It's not easy to get at, and I had to remove the cross-brace between the shock mounts to get at it more easily. The part's about $90 from online parts sources, more at the dealer, plus my dealer wanted a king's ransom to install, $400, parts and labor! While not easy to get to, it's fairly easy to replace--just BE SURE to pump the brakes a lot, engine off, before removing it so that residual booster vacuum won't **** the rubber o-ring around the sensor's cylindrical body into the booster chamber. Hardest, most aggravating part is removing and replacing that steel circlip that holds the sensor in place. Dropping that little steel band into the back of the engine bay kicks off a whole new adventure!

This is a known problem although Volvo will not admit it. The dash needs to come out (10 min job) and sent away for a simple repair. Total cost is about £150 but you will need to get the SRS warning that will be showing in the LED message display cancelled by a Volvo dealer after the dash has come back. Don't try a scrapyard dashboard the ECUs have IP addresses. I used a company in Kent to do the repair. Get onto Google there may be a repairer more local.

Volvo S80 gauge indicates no or low fuel even when tank is half full.


The most likely culprit is a faulty Fuel Level Sending Unit (sends fuel level from tank to dash gauge). It may be stuck, or beyond repair and in need of replacement. Dealing with electronics in your tank can be tricky and should be dealt with by a professional.

Good luck!

I was driving and all the dash lights went off and the gauges all dropped down to zero, also at this time the window would not work. Then after turning the car off and restarting the lights and gauges all...


Check ALL your ground wires, neg. battery cable, frame ground ect.
If this does not help, go directly to your VOLVO dealer, you do not want the air bags to deploy when you are driving down the highway !
