Spurious Instrument Cluster Warning Lights
My 2006 X-5 was recently repaired at a local body shop for front end damage. In the course of the repair, the 4x4 transfer case was replaced. Since this repair three weeks ago I have been experiencing spurious false warning lights: The yellow 4x4 inop light occasionally comes and resets after shutdown and restart. I had the Hazard lights come on without being selected. Another time the red battery symbol light came on. I turned the engine off, restarted the battery light went out. Today the red seat belt not fastened warning came on with seat belt fastened and engaged in the lock.

Has anyone experienced this behavior?
Could this be a main computer problem?
How do you troubleshoot weird electrical issues like this?
