    hi all

    having some more problems with my bimmer,

    got a bit of electrical trouble a few weeks ago,

    first the hazard lights went, then short while the fuel and temp gauge went, got to an auto electrician to sort out the hazard lights.

    any ideas what i could do??

    ive tried doing the dash test by but it doesnt work for me an i doing it right;
    pushing the mileage reset button then turning to ignition 1 (which one is this) wait for test (not happening)

    jay

    Possibly a faulty voltage stabilizer

    Its the unit that controls the fuel and temp guage. When it goes faulty they both usually go off. I should imagine it is built into the dashboard.
