    I could really use some advice on my 2008 BMW 328i with about 90k on it. I left my headlights on for a few hours like an idiot on a rainy day. When I came back to my car it turned over(barely) and started but none of my speedometer, blinkers, or dash lights will come up. From what I can tell...

    Hey there, I'm new to this, so bare with me. Iv owned a 6/89 5speed 525i for 8 years. About a year ago on a 600mile trip, I started experiencing an erratic cluster. The speedo was jumping, and my gas gauge was way off. Pulled into auto zone, turned the engine off. They check it out and have no...

    I have a 300xi and for about 3 months my instrument cluster lights come off and on. When I start the car they always light up however they don't always stay lit. I've checked fuses but no issues there. The dealership is saying it's a computer part costing over 1000$ Anything else I can do...

    Have a 96 328i. It was rear-ended on the freeway (enough to cause real whiplash and a small dent inside the spare tire well). The instrument cluster now goes down, then comes back up again - frequently. Had it looked at and the problem seems to be connections that were drying out got jarred and...

    Hi, first time user on this forum, but I have a question about my Z3 and need some help for the people here. I got into my 2001 Z3 this morning and the instrument cluster (gas gauge, engine temp, RPM and Speedometer) are not working. The mileage and lights on the dashboard are working though...

    I have a 2002 BMW 530i that about a month ago one of the lamps that is a backlight for the MID in the instrument cluster went out. I searched online and ordered a small handful of lamps and about 3 weeks ago, I removed the cluster and installed them. Unfortunately, I found some broken plastic...

    I have a 2000 528i and when I started it today the Dash is Dead and the AC compressor will not kick on. All other electrical items are working fine. Car runs fine. I pulled the PEAKE R5 codes and get 83-CAN Timeout (instr2) and 84-CAN timeout (instr3). I tried resetting the codes but no...
