2016 Instrument Panel Dead (blank)

9353 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?

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.

They told me that it will cost about $900 to fix.

Seems you are not alone although this Instrument Panel Gage Cluster for the Gen1 can be bought for much cheaper on ebay...
