Customer Question

I have a 2002 Volvo V70. The dash lights and instruments have ceased to work. I have tried another dash cluster but that does not work either. Any ideas. Alan
JA: The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Do you happen to have the code?
Customer: No I don't as there is nothing coming up on the dash at all
JA: Not a problem. You can work with the Volvo Mechanic to figure that out. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes I was hoping to
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Just tried a second hand dash unit that I know worked on another car
JA: Is there anything else the Volvo Mechanic should be aware of about your Volvo?
Customer: No don't think so
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Volvo Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!If the instrument cluster is completely dead then it is either missing a power or ground or has failed internally. If you saw the replacement cluster work in another vehicle then the problem should be a loss of power or ground. You may have a blown fuse or wiring issue (I'm assuming no there are no other electrical problems which should rule out something such as a bad ignition switch).If fuses are good then the next step is testing the cluster power and ground feeds. Has this been done?
