Hi guys.

I seem to have a problem with the left side LCD (MPG etc.) in my DIM, when I start the car it flickers then after a while it stops and only shows blank boxes/letters. does anybody know if this is fixable?

I can't see MPG,L/100km and so on.:mad:

perhaps it is a faulty LCD or ribbon cable?

2002 S60

the rest of my dim seems to work fine...

Or it’s the beginning of the end...you may want to start preparing for a DIM change out.

XemodeX can help you out with getting it repaired. Comes with a great warranty, and they'll handle the shipping in/out. Check their site for a PROMO code if you have it repaired.

May indeed be the infamous DIM issue being a 2002, although I've never seen it going blank like that, but who knows what electronic part may have failed. Xemodex is good but on the expensive side, they appear to be asking $450 US for it https://xemodex.com/us/product/driver-information-module-for-volvo-vo-1030-862473-10-20/

Got mine fixed and fully checked by a local tv shop for $75 Cad, so it's not that a big job. Ebay also have plenty of DIM Repair services going for far less and they are in the US https://www.ebay.com/itm/Volvo-Inst...9&hash=item3fb2cf37ff:g:UeMAAOSwlThb~aJN#rwid

Battery disconnected all the time the DIM is out, or you will get an SRS light and message

Edit. Just seen you are in Denmark, so Ebay US is too far away. Try searching for a local tv/electronics repair shop or hobbits, that works with SMD components
