where did my dash display go

was just having my car hand washed, i was inside with ignition on and all my dash display and clock display dissapeared. Car was still running and stereo stayed on. Could this be anything to do with automatic lights or do i have a fault

My display has gone blank before..cycle through the MPG options and it will come back.

Not sure why mine kept jumping to blank...was a while ago.

Change the dimmer on the lights as well....it can appear blank but be very very dim.

Sound a bit more serious than the central rev counter area as he mentions all dash display and the clock which is the top area.

A dealer visit I would suggest.

Check the dimmer for the dash, it goes pretty low and if the lights came on.....

Its happened to me once as well on a long trip I was turning the lights on/off and central display (clock A/C) stopped showing but radio and AC were working fine.
Turned the car off and on and it reappeared. Only once in 15000km so not too bothered.
