    hey guys, i've got a qucik question, on my e36 speedo everything is fine, except, the milage counter and trip counter

    they are very very very dimly light, the bottom part of it lights up fine when you turn the key, you get green lights, but those two just wont get any brighter, its not dimmed down, cos when the lights come on everything is fine

    all the other things light up fine, could it just be a loose connection? i dunno if that part is sperate from the other wiring or not

    i'm thinking about getting the speedo's changed anyways, if i did that, how do my mile done stay the same, will the new cluster pick up how many i've done ?? :S

    To change the mileage you would need a specialist to recalibrate it for you

    Google fix my mileage

    May be worth removing the cluster and seeing if all the bulbs are illuminating. Two screws in the top of the cluster hold them in position in the dash
