Well I just did the soft reset. Everything looked like it was in running order. The idrive spinned when the screen was blank. Yes the car always started and ran like normal but the dash had went blank. All the other guages was working normal and was illuminated clearly. I am going to wait a couple of hours and go out there and start the car again. I don't want pull anything out cause I don't want to mess up those fiber cables you mentioned. I will keep you informed because I have a appointment with the dealer on Thursday. Hopefully things will correct itself before then.
