you have lights that are burned out. replace and all is well. the headlight switch is easy to do. never had to do the radio one cause i usually yank those out to replace with a different head unit.

LCD backlights are out in the radio. Try tapping the display & see if they come back on. They can be replaced by an electronics repair shop. Common problem for all radios, not just BMW's.

If you're real handy with electronics, it can be done.

Actually, it began in 2003 before i stored my car. The radio control would display, and sometimes they wouldn't, i tapped it and the light would come on. After i took it out from storage a couple of months ago, it stopped working, even if i tap it niothing happens. At night it looks weird.

i would keep the e36 and jsut fix the lights on it. I think you will have more fun in that then the e46 but that is my .02. You are only looking at a couple of bucks for new lights
