I had the same problem but it was in my 2000 bmw z3. What happened is humidity got in the fuse box. How I solved it in my z3 is I opened the fuse box while the car was off and removed all the fuses for the gauges and reseated them. then I cycled the car and it solved it for me. I have heard of some people having to do other things but this worked in my particular situation and maybe for you.
