Look for a dial that you can rotate to adjust the brightness. Should be very near the headlight switch.

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..

If you have SRS and "brake failure" it should be taken to a dealer. a shadetree mechanic will screw more up than he will fix in this case. trust me on this! you will pay a price, but will save you more $ and less headache in the longrun.

SOURCE: Digital dash lights on 2001 Mercedes CLK 430 CONVERTIBLE

these displays ared l.c.d. displays and what happens is over time the vacuum pack on the crystal element ruptures and get air in the tube and that part of the display is ruined permanently.I'm not sure if your saying that there are pieces missing or if the whole display is blank. If there are peices missing the only way to fix it is to repkace the instrument cluster. If they are blank it is very likley it is either the backlighting bulb or the dimmer switch. If you take a blanket and cover your display and can see the display very dimmly try replacing your back lighting bulbs- hopefully it is just your backlighting because the clusters are about 1,000 dollars and have to be special ordered with your mileage engraved in the new unit.

I have a 2001 Volvo XC70. It has a trouble code


Well this can be caused by the thermostat being stuck open. The coolant temp will not come up to expected temp. It can also be caused by the fan being stuck on. Run the car and see if the fan stays on. If the fan is not stuck on it may well be the t-stat and replacing that should cause the check engine light to go off after a drive cycle.

Dim lights no radio


you have a roller switch, probably located on the bottom part of the dash by it's self by the drivers door, is turns up and down, turn it up and the lights will return to normal.
