Instrument cluster

Post by MPOOL » Mon May 06, 2019 4:03 pm

I find the instrument cluster on my 2006 S80 to be hard to read at night as the numbers themselves are not lit up. Does anyone know of a different instrument cluster that would work or how to light this one up better ?

Sounds like the bulbs have aged and/or some are burnt out.

Options:
1. New bulbs.
2. Switch to LED bulbs with a better color spectrum.

Yes. LED bulbs make sense now that I've researched the. Thanks.
