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.

Center display dims and/or shuts off

Often the nav display is dimmed so much, that it is hardly visible. Now it has begun to shut completely off, but only for 1-2 seconds before it turns back on. This usually only happens for the first five kms/minutes, then it works fine for the rest of the trip, while the dimming can happen all the time.

When searching I can see there have been some issues before with the display turning completely off after a few minutes due to bad hardware, but that is the opposite of mine, that only acts up until "warm". So I was wondering if this is fixable without replacing complete system components? And if it is the display itself that have issues, or it could be something else on the MOST?
