Question about 2003 Volvo XC70
I have a volvo s80 on a 2000 plate which has lost all dashboard lights and gauges - it does have the engine management light and a very dim clock but everything else is completely gone. have you any ideas? I have an 02 XC70, same problem. Goes off and on intermittently too.
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..
