    My 1997 318I engine instrument cluster does not illuminate at night it's dark. Also, the right indicator blows the 7.5 fuse repeateadly. Only the left hallogen bulb stays on when I turn on the lites. Any suggestions?

    One of the mods will be along in a while an dprobably say something like "Please re-title your thread to follow the guide lines" Something like year E number and model.

    Also would be good to have these details to help, plus what number (not fuse rating is it) as various fuses service various circuits.

    You may find all those circuits rely on sidelight like cluster lighting and other lights and that maybe one short or bad earth causes all this.

    For example does the fuse go when you turn the lights on or something else?

    Find out which fuse first and what circuits it protects, then you can maybe eliminate by not turning on some circuits or seeing if it does not blow with some things disconnected

    I don't have the details for your car handy but - assuming it's a lighting fuse - the lighting is split left and right so you don't loose everything if there is a fault.

    First question. Have you added, changed or repaired anything recently - however unrelated it might seem?

    After that, as has been said, find out what that fuse protects and eliminate one at a time by disconnecting and/or not switching on. For example, if you establish it's the right indicator, take out the bulbs next (could be a shorted bulb holder).
