Volvo s80 dashboard fault

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..

I have a volvo s80, a light on the dashboard has a photo of a car that is leaning inside of a triangle,what does that light mean


The "leaning triangle" light is the light signifying there is a fault with the traction system (STC) a quick scan with a scan tool will tell you exactly what the fault is.
The only other triangle light on these cars is the triangle with the circle and the exclamation point. Which is either Orange or Red depending on the severity of the issue. And what you described sounds like the STC light to me.

Hope this helps.

I have a Volvo S80 2000 model Recently I have lost all contact wih my dashboard. Lights, and all dials fail to function, although the car starts and runs as per normal. Exterior lights and indicators all...


I have the same prob except mine is intermittent at the mo. Spoke to an electrical mechanic today who informs me that a new dash is needed. According to other forums second hand one's don't work but it may be possible to send yours off and have it repaired.

THE ENGINE MANAGEMENT LIGHT on my volvo S80 COMES ON OCCASIONALY AND SAYS THAT THE CAR NEEDS AN ALARM SERVICE BUT DOES NOT DETRACT FROM THE DRIVE OF THE CAR


It won't detract until you ignore it long enough and the engine immobiliser fails and leaves you stranded.

Do as your car is telling you and get it to a Volvo dealer. Preventing the fault will likely cost less and certainly be less inconvenient and dangerous than having it occur whilst driving.

Volvo s80 dashboard fault


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.
