  1. Auto Electrical Forum
    Hi all, I have recently bought an E90. However, I noticed what I think is the engine warning/check engine light does not come on upon initial startup (like all other lights). I have also ran the dash cluster test and this light does not come on during that sequence either. I have circled the...

    I have a 1 series 118i and for some reason the instrument cluster and thus headlights have stopped coming on at night automatically when it's dark. However if I turn them on manually they work.

    Hello all BMW 530i E39 owners, the following may well apply to other models. If you have missing pixels on your display: - 1) Don't rush online to purchase the cheapest ribbon you can find. The fault is just as likely, in fact more so, to be with the LCD. 2) After having no joy with a...

    HI All, Re: 2003 BMW 530i E39 "high" Instrument cluster. there seems to be no way in which I'm going to get my digital display working again. I have read that if I purchase a fully working instrument cluster I will need to "code" it to get it working. What does this entail? Can it be done...
