One of many things it could be is corrosion in the "Panel Display" switch.

Several good shots with a very good contact cleaner on the innards of that switch might bring it back into play.

I have to say though, I don't have much faith in those panels. Lots of wires, a zillion contact points, put it all together it calls for more maintenance than most people are willing to give just to have so-so accuracy of things that are much more precisely checked with either a VTVM or a flashlight.

Your mileage may vary, of course...

I'm having a similar issue once i installed a new water pump, I have checked and rechecked every fuse, I am lost. All my electronics are working except for the control panel, and really the only thing I need from it is the water pump.
