Dash cluster rebuild

Recommended Posts

I have had several gauges, one at a time, begin to fail on me. First it was one air tank, then it was the odometer, etc.

I was talking with someone that said this is common and they had sent theirs off to be rebuilt and would send me the info. Well, it's been a while. Obviously they forgot to send the info and I forgot who it was. Wasn't I talking about senility the other day?

Anyway...help!!!!

I looked into this a couple of years ago.  I believe the Resource Guide had one vendor listed & after contacting them I seem to remember(?) they wouldn't repair my '99.

I ended up having my "center" section replaced. Don't recall the price.

A quick look at the links that were provided to you would make me think that it may be possible for a repair on a Gen1 cluster.

Would appreciate it if you'd let us know of your experience with the repair.

Phil,

You and I were talking about that a while back.  The place I had found online was https://www.taninautoelectronix.com/VOLVO-VNL-Semi-Truck-Gauge-Cluster-Repair-p/volvo_semi_repair.htm  $170 to replace all the stepper motors, $99 for the lighting, $99 for the speaker

I also just sent a quote request to Southern Electronics at https://www.instrumentclusters.com/instrument-cluster-repair

I had contacted Southern Electronics and they indicated that they could not work on the Volvo VNL cluster.

FYI the listing for the link that I sent indicates that the 159.00 fee includes repair of stepper motors and background lighting.  Not sure about speaker replacement.

Your    2008 Volvo VNL 780   repair quote from Southern Electronics

John ,

Thanks you for your quote request. Unfortunately we can not repair instrument clusters for your vehicle at this time.

Unfortunately we don’t know of a company that can help you.

Please keep us in mind for your future repair needs as it is not often we have to decline.

Thank you for your time.

Best Regards,

Rashid Powell
