    Had my T reg BMW for a couple of months and now speedo doesn't work (rev counter does)., fuel gauge doesn't work, ABS lights flickering and ABS seems not to work, other dashboard lights flickering. What might be the cause?

    Thanks,
    CA.

    Maybe a loose connection.There are 2 screws at the top of the clocks undo those then pull the whole lot out and check the three plugs are plugged in correctly-That would be my first port of call

    You also need to title your thread correctly ie make,model of your car etc

    Have you tried the binnacle test?

    turn the ignition off hold the button on the clock near the lcd display then turn the ignition on to i think position 2, the clock should go all the way round the dials. if this does not work then it would suggest to me that indeed you do need a new cluster! hope this helps.
