Hi Hightower

As the time,temp and radio display has failed at the same time my guess is the bulbs have blown in the display.

The top of the dash will need to come off to get at them.

Hope this helps.

Hi Hightower,

I have a 1997 Renault Megane Scenic, and a similar problem happened to me. There is a dial that is above the fuse box which can easily get knocked. When it is, it minimises the display for the radio, clock and temperature to the point where you can't see it. It also dims the speedo which you only notice when driving at night. Might be worth checking to see if it has been knocked to its lowest setting.

Hmmm ... Hard or easy job ???

Will it set off the passenger airbag???
Same happened on my Megane.

Not difficult but time consuming. Get enough spare bulbs in case any others need replacing while you're under the dash!

No issues that I recall with the passenger airbag.
