2016 Instrument Panel Dead (blank)

9363 Views 12 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Electric 7049
I was out this morning doing some shopping and when I got back in the car and started it, noticed instrument panel was completely dead. Normal warning lights came on for a second during startup, but nothing else. Infotainment system was normal. Car drove normally

Did a few restarts with no change. I drove home ( luckily only a few miles) like that.

After getting out of the car, locking and unlocking the car ( thinks it's some sort of soft reset) everything went back to normal. Not sure what is going on, first time anything weird like that happening. Suppose I could have possibly done a bad start button push (i.e. Double tap)? Maybe it's IP address got confused?

Anybody else have an experience like that?

My 2012’s instrument cluster did this on-off dance for a while then went blank, never to return. Dealer replaced the instrument cluster for ~$900 since I was out of warranty. If you can get it to the dealer while it is not working, don’t wait. Get it replaced while you are still under warranty.
