  1. Instrumental Cluster light malfunction.

    X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello friends, So I've got this problem with my instrumental cluster. Specifically, I have a problem with my outside temperature light. I have had a problem previously where 3 out of 5 cluster bulbs went out and I changed them quickly and they were working, but I had a problem with my...
  2. Instrument Cluster Panel

    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Have a quick question; is the instrument cluster panel on the E60's a plug and play type part? Just a history of what I'm dealing with: a few years ago, my car was draining the battery and my mechanic couldn't figure it out. After a couple of grand of changing wiring parts here and there, he...

    E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello, I am having an issue with my instrument cluster in my 2005 BMW 325Ci. The problem first started during hurricane Irma when I was going through some deep water and must have hit something, resulting in me ripping out some of my under panel and my ambient temperature sensor along with...

  6. Instrument cluster settings not taking?

    X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hey all: I noticed something funny with my 2016 X3's instrument display. A while back, the default settings for the center (display temperature and current consumption) were replaced by the onboard compass. I did absolutely nothing intentionally to make this happen. Then, after restarting the...
  7. M240 Instrument Panel Looks Weird at Night? Do You Also Experience This?

    F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    Hi, Proud new owner of a 2017 M240i XDrive here! I love it. :-) However, the instrument panel looks odd at night - the area under the speedo and tach dials shows a bright rectangle. I realize that it's a different screen under/beside the dials, but it seems to have a lot of light bleed and...
  8. Speedometer motors

    X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Am having intermittent squeals from the drive motors in my instrument cluster. The information is correct so far but just noisy! I also had a GMC Suburban several years ago with the same problem and sent off the cluster and had all replaced and returned in 2 days for $100! Is there someplace...

    X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    2014 BMW X1 Ist owner - straight from factory in Germany I know how to reset the TMP after I've adjusted the pressure and if I haven't adjusted the pressure and want to dismiss (for a second) the alert displayed in the cockpit, via the Steering column stalk, left. Question -- Is there any way...
  10. E39 WTB: 1998 E39 Rebadged 540i-M5 Needs Various Parts(Body, Trim, Cosmetic)

    Parting Out
    TL;DR: 1. Need cosmetic and various non-"mechanical" parts. 2. If you have parts to sell, see if I'm looking for yours. 3. I know I'm long-winded, that is irrelevant. I want to buy stuff. 4. If you are selling but can't be bothered to read the lists I toiled over making and formatting, I...

    E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi – This is my first question here. Happy new owner of a clean 1996 BMW 328i. I just bought this girl 4 days ago from a friend (they only had it 3 weeks and got scared about maintenance costs when the fuel pump gave out, so sold it me me. I'm more "mechanical"). I was coming home after the...
  14. Bought CPO 335i insta meant cluster crack

    F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I recently bought a CPO BMW 335i. I love the car but it has a crack in the instrument cluster under the rpm guage. Should this have been caught in bmw's cpo inspection that I hear so much about? Are they really not that thorough. Just trying to decide if it's worth perusing because the...
  15. 2015 528i stain inside the instrument cluster

    F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Inside the lower left corner of my 2015 528i's (@5200 miles) instrument cluster I see some marks/stains (see the attached pictures). I cannot tell what it is. It looks like as if some moist penetrated in or something happened inside the cluster. On the fuel panel (not the plastic screen or lens)...

  17. Advice for My Instrument Cluster Please!

    E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    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...
  18. 2013 F30 instrument cluster - orange?

    F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I am looking into buying a 2013 335i M Sport Pkg sedan, and some of the cars I found have an orange electronic display in the instrument cluster. However, a majority of them have the new white display. I am confused as to why there are two different displays for the 2013 models. Is this color...
  19. Fuse confusion

    E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2003 325xi. The instrument cluster (both lights and dials) and the central locking mechanism went out all at once. The fuse diagram lists fuses 10, 34 and 43 for the cluster and 49, 52, 60 for the lock. Since there are no overlapping fuses for the two systems, I expect that the...
