Customer Question

2008 prius. When I started driving the whole dash went blank. Audio and a/c panel works, all other electric works just the instrument panel completely out. Is there a fuse for that? Or what wlelse can it be? Also, it wont turn off.

Later: Never mind, I figured it out by going to an online forum. Its the "combination Meter", which is basically the whole electronic part of the dash. Apparently theres a warranty on this for 7 or 9 years. So it should still be under warranty

The dash cluster is a common component to fail/act up like this here.I have seen several cause this before and had to have it replaced.The warranty coverage should cover this replacement or repair.I do apologize for the delay and posted as soon as I saw your question myself.If there is anything else I can help with here let me know.
