    Hi all
    After changing some of the trim from my 328i (e36) interior the dash cluster dials dont illuminate any more.
    They all work functionally but dont illuminate at all... makes it quite difficult as I keep hitting the limiter at night

    I checked the fuses and they are all fine...

    Any ideas what this could be?

    Cheers
    Tom

    Hi, could you please remember to add the vehicle details and a informative title in the Thread Title next time as per forum rules please http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...-rules-t76199/, the Thread title has been done for you this time. It makes it far easier for people looking up help for their own problems or conversions if they have the same car.

    Do the backlights still work on other things like switches etc. If you turn the dimmer do they operate ok.
    Maybe a problem with the plug on the back of the cluster, or maybe you have disturbed a wire. The wiring for the illumination is grey/red.
