Ditto what jfmjr442 said...check for burnt out bulbs.

Just for clarification...that display on your instrument cluster is NOT the MID...it's affectionately referred to as the CCD (Check Control Display) since it is the display designed specifically for the Priority 1 and 2 warnings....and that's why any other info that appears in this display gets removed IMMEDIATELY if the Check Control System requires to communicate with you.

The MID is the multi-informational display (used for cars without NAVIGATION) that is used to access the AUDIO/OBC/CLOCK/PHONE functions.
(this is what the MID is...although this is the MID from the e38...you get the gist )
