XC70 Intermittent dash displays - SRS Airbag warning - VIDA VICE reset

edited April 27 in Troubleshooting

2001 XC70

For no obvious reason, all of the displays on my dash stopped working (speedo, tach, temp and fuel) As well, all of the lights went out. Every thing on the centre console continued to function normally. Several minutes later, everything came good. This cycle of off/on has occurred several time in the last 3 trips in the car.

As a result of this DIM failure, I am now getting a warning message about the SRS airbag needing immediate service.

Is there anybody in Sydney (esp northern beaches) with a VIDA-VICE that would allow me to clear the code?


  • Blacktown if your up for the drive?

  • Can you email me at blackinc@presto.net.au so we can arrange a convenient time?

    i wouldnt worry about the SRS code, but your DIM is dying. would be worth looking for a replacement but again it can wait, car will still run. I have a spare dim but the part numbers dont match so it needs programming. you really need the numbers to match, i have another on order but its stuck in Lithuania.

    oh if your handy with a solder, check the voltage regulator its attached to a heatsink. it gets hot and cuts power.
