hey how are you

I m sorry to hear about the issue she is having with it

1- if possible let her get off the interstate and find advance auto or auto zone and let them check the battery & the alternator they do it for free?

if the battery is needed , they change for free, if alternator is needed then that will need a repair shop to replace alternator but if the told here battery good and alternator charging , then let her keep driving it home

2- the instrument panel in these Volvo are a common failure issue , if the instrument cluster is flickering because it went bad itslef , then she will be fine

driving it, but we need to know is the cluster flickering because of the a battery bad not taking a charge or alternator not charging .

Please let me know if that works for you or you need additional help

Thank You
