Default t6 instrument panel lights

I just bought a 1999 S80 T-6, the instrument panel is dark where the clock, drive selector, and temp show. You can see them if you shine a light on them. Is this a major repair or is there a light out?

I have never seen that before.All the other dash lights are ok?Im not sure if there is a bulb or not.You could try calling the Parts Dept at the dealer and have them look it up and give you a price on the bulb.Then they should tell you if it is avalible.

my 2002 s60 just did this the other day when I went to adjust my clock for daylight savings time. It was fine, then no backlit light on the LCD. All other lights in the instrument panel i.e. the mileage indicator etc. were bright. This morning after it being out for a couple of days it is back to being lit up. Very strange. I checked all sorts of buttons and my service manual.

With my previous body shop experience, I would have to say the bulb light. However, I do not have any direct experience with Volvo on this. My 2cents.

If it was my car, I would attempt to check out the bulb.

Tech: is right. Asking the dealer about the bulb might lead you to a better answer. Please come back and post your resolution.

Out here in Lafayette, CA where the median household income is $105,000, nobody driving a Volvo works on their car. So when a cheapo like me goes up to the service department and asks technical questions, they only say make an appointment and we'll tell you what we find...$120 later for diagnosis.

So if I was to ask them about a bulb in the dash...I'm foooooooooked!

Glad we have tech and other great guys to help us DITY (do it yourself).
