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: 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 clock


Unfortunately, this seems to be a common problem. The fuse will likely be for part of the instrument cluster.
If you aren't seeing any other issues, then it's probably a problem with the clock.
On the other hand, if you are seeing other issues, there is a possibility that it is the processor (yes, there's a separate processor for dashboard functions and instruments).

Dear Volvo Tech Support, The dashboard clock on my V70-2002 Volvo runs forward un-controllable, every time I start the car. At this point I can not see the temperature gauge. The clock will stop randomly...


Youperhaps have used some dashboard-shine wich have gotten into the electronics and makes a sort of short Circuit there?
You may try to spray some degreaser in by the knobs before dismatling the entre dashboard and combi-instrument.
LEK-lube have a nice degreaser for electronics, but you may use any brand as long as it wanishes entirely (leaves no residues).
