No dash lights on 2000 S40

Post by Broodoobob » Thu Dec 28, 2017 1:03 pm

On a recently purchased S40 I have no dash illumination. The radio lights are working, no other lights are. All indicator lamps work, but the instrument cluster backlight does not. Oddly, the switch to control the headlights doesn't work either, and I can't turn on my high beams.

Things I've tried: check fuses, replace dimmer assembly, disassemble dimmer assembly to check for problems. No luck.

I'm on the verge of giving up and selling the car since I drive at night a lot and cannot see my speedometer.

Any help is appreciated.
