2002 S40. A month ago, when you start the car, none of the gauges will work & all of indicator lights are lit.No one finds problem. Ideas?


Asked by NCfrustrated Jan 16, 2012 at 07:53 AM about the 2002 Volvo S40 1.9T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car has approx 78k miles - has been taken to Volvo dealership as well as a couple of different "electrical" repair/maintenance facilities.  No one can figure out what is causing this.  After the car is driven for a while (i.e. 20 minutes or longer), everything starts working again - all the gauges and the dash indicator lights all go out.
