1998 Volvo 610 Dashboard

The LCD readout does not work. I've had the rest of the dash re-soldered and everything works, but this didn't come to life. Finding a new one to replace it has proved impossible. I don't want to spring for a whole new dash board. This hasn't worked since I've had the truck so I haven't missed it. But, I would like to have/know what information I could learn from it. Does anybody know where to find a used one maybe, or some other work around? Maybe a tablet set up? This truck has a Cummins M11. It has a pretty complete set of gauges......except for a volt gauge. I'm guessing if the truck throws a code, this is where it would show up. I'm open to any ideas.

The place I sent it off to replaced light bulbs and did some re-soldering. The back light illuminates, but the panel is dead.

I would also check the wiring harness behind the display. The contacts can get weak and sloppy with time. Can you swap it with a known good one to check the harness? Jay

I do not have a good to check with. They re-soldered all the pins when I had the dash re-done. They said most of the time that was the issue but not always. They told me the LCD panel was apparently dead.

A ScanGauge KR will effectively give you much of the information normally found in the driver's information display. There are also tablet/software solutions, but the name escapes me at the moment. Jay

Since my gauges all work, I'm thinking of just adding the volt gauge, which it lacks, and maybe by a scan tool that will read any codes should I need to. This truck also has the Road Relay which works. Basically just a trip/leg meter, but does give your oil pressure and temp.

Sounds good. Here is a link to the ScanGauge KR, if you decide to use it. They ScanGauge will give you fault codes, which I think is already worth the price of admission. Jay

If you have a working Road Relay, you're gold. It will also pull any fault codes for you. They're usually paperweight candidates, and an aftermarket reader like ScanGauge is needed. We use a "D" model on one of the farm trucks, to keep track of the blinky CEL.

I'll have to look at it closer and figure out how to use it. I just use the trip odometer and the fuel average fuel mileage function now. Occasionally check the oil temp and pressure, but the truck as a oil pressure gauge. I'll probably just put some aftermarket volt meter on it. There is no space in the cluster to put it. I figured the LCD panel showed the battery volts. Can't imagine the truck not having someplace to monitor the volts when it was new.
