Hello, I am new to this forum but it looks like there is lots of useful info here and I hope somebody can help...
I have a "low" cluster on my 1998 528iAT. My cluster indicators, fog light warnings and main beam all stopped working after the recent rains. The pictogram of the car shows doors open/closed properly but not light bulb failures when I tested it. The lights all work as normal on the outside with the exception of the reversing lights. I traced a serious leak from the sunroof into the area of the LCM. However, I have tested 3 used LCM's and none of them were able to restore the cluster lights.
I have tried diagnosis with PASoft 1.3.6 and the IKE fault code comes back as 190 which seems to be "Sensor fur Turau.engriffberuhrung Fahrerseite-G415" (???!) which I assume is just the driver's door open warning. There is also a code for the AC (24) which seems unrelated ("Cold flap actuator center console, rear right-V203").
I do not have a CD changer, so cannot imagine there is the apparently usual issue of water in the connector in the boot. The LCM will not communicate at all with PASoft which leads me to fear a K-bus issue with the cluster.
Would be grateful for any solutions!
