Mein Auto: 740il
1995 740IL radio and other electrical issues

I just purchased a 1995 BMW and have several electrical issues.

1. Radio not even coming on. Seems to be no power. I did check the fuse under the hood on the passenger side. Looked good.

2. Blinkers work. However on the cluster it does not show up. Hazards as well. Work on outside but not on the cluster. (speedometer on cluster does not work either, but tachometer does. Cluster does light up fine.

Any advice would be appreciated.
