Re: '02 Volvo XC-70. For the past 2 days the dashboard goes dark (no speedo, no tach, all the dash indicators are as if the engine is off), but the car runs fine. The only working light on the dash is the high beam indicator. Also, airbag indicator light on message center.
Two nights ago, I drove thru water about 6-8" high (under RR bridge). I parked the car and 3 hours later when driving home, dash went dead. Next morning, dash worked fine for 5 minutes, then went dead, for 5 minutes. Since then, dash is dead more than "alive", but comes and goes. Should I just wait a few days to see if everything dries out? Or, could some plug for the dash be loose? If so, where do I look/check?
I have 156K miles and this has never happened.
