7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Bmw e66 complete white screen

I had this complete White screen on my iDRIVE LCD Display. Even after I off and on and the engine after a few days, it remained.

Originally thought the LCD went dead or some connectors got burned.

Here is how I resolved the problem and the LCD display is back up (Normal and Displaying all information).

1. I unplug and re-inserted the Fuses located at two locations (fuse box at boot/trunk and the other fuse box at the glove compartment on the passenger).

2. I simply removed and reinserted all the 7.5Amp fuses)

3. For my car, there were a total of three 7.5Amp fuses (one in the glove compartment and two in the boot/trunk)

4. The reason I zeroed in on the 7.5amp fuses was because I knew the 7.5Amp fuse powered the LCD display but I didn't know which one. So I simply remove and inserted all the 7.5amp fuses (total three fuses).

5. Hope that helps. I almost went out to purchase a $3000 replacement LCD screen. Thank GOD I didn't.
