2016 Instrument Panel Dead (blank)

9354 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?

Thanks, will see if it does it again, in any case have 7 yr extended warranty
I checked the fuse panel in the car, the panel that supplies power to this instrument panel and many other items. I was able to push in every small plastic fuse a little bit, and I could hear and feel it move. Movement was only about 1/2- 3/4mm but who knows how sensitive this stuff is. Not sure if it was like that from factory, or the fuses backed out a bit over time.

Curious to see if anyone else noticed this about the fuses and if they have had a blank screen issue
Was this a permanent fix?
There were similar reports with the ELR 2014, most were resolved by disconnecting the 12 V battery for 2 minutes, good luck!!!.
