DIM works , but .....

Post by wikan1 » Sat Oct 07, 2017 4:39 pm

2004 S80 2.5t AWD. dash lights at about 1/2 of normal.
Entire area where light controls are is dead.
gas flap release switch, fog light switches front and rear, and thumbwheel for brightness dead, headlight switch dead.
high beams will flash, but not stay on ( am guessing because I can't turn the light switch on) daytime driving lights on all the time.
I can't seem to set off the security siren, even if I open the door while locked, etc.
have read about CEM and DIM, but can't find anything matching these symptoms.
All else works- horn wipers, interior lights, etc.
Hoping to find some help and see if anyone else has had this happen, or good advice pointing me in the right direction!
Thanks much!!
should have mentioned- pulled all fuses under hood and interior and trunk fuse panels . swapped relays, makes no difference, and no blown fuses. Just couldn't get that lucky....
