so my dash board isnt working. nothing reads. when i start the car the lights light up. but the speedometer, odometer, gas gauge, tact. nothing works. somebody told me it might be a battery in the cluster board. any advice?

either that or i guess im looking for a new cluster board.

get back to me thanks.

no its not any fuses. the guy that took it apart said it was some burnt out battery in the cluster board. any ideas?

all of the lights come on when i start the car. but while im driving. nothing works. and only half od the dash lights up when i have my lights on.

I dont think there is a battery on the board. There are capacitors that will burn out. If you can find a good electrician they should be able to fix it for not much money.
Check BMWe34.net under dash capacitors for a writeup.
