BMW 03 320D BMW dashboard / instrument cluster failing

Postby Fergie32 » Mon, 02 Nov 2009 18:30:56 UTC

Good Evening,

Today i started my BMW to find that nothing was working on the dash board - I used the old fashioned way of fixing things and banged the top of the dash then some of the displays started working (Milage and Fuel), but this has since went out again. There are no lights working at all on the dash board or Speedometers or rev counter. The temp gauge was also going straight to red when the worked for the short period of time.

Any Ideas?

just remember mate if the car runs and is drivable its an offense to knowingly drive a car with a faulty binnacle.

have you whipped it out to check the connections at the back etc.

apart from that I'm not of much help

Odd happenings with the instruments can be caused by a faulty ignition switch or rear wheel speed sensor [n/s] iirc.
