Recent bought a great '88 528e, car in great condition @115k original miles.
Everything works, but the onboard computer display recently went south.
The AM dirve to work the display cannot be seen at all even with the headlights on, but, returning home in the afternoon the display is dim but readable and the computer functions as it should.
Can anyone give me some idea of what the problem may be?

I bet the bulbs have blown out. Take the computer out and you will see 2 or 3 holes with small black twist out bulb bases in them, you can get new ones at the dealer cheap.

dannyc9997,
Thanks for the response. I had thought that the display was backlit. Your response turned on my own light bulb.
Thanks
