it all seems to be happening to me on the car front at the moment - my wife calls up yesterday and tells me that all of the dials (fuel/temp/tach) on the instrument panel have stopped working - I think fuse??? - but she is miles a way and the weather is not too clever at the mo. So this morning she rings me and tells me that all are now working - strange - any ideas anyone?

When the gauges fail I would try a binnacle test, Hold down the mileage reset button with the ignition off, turn the ignition key to position 1, Wait for TEST to appear and then release reset button, watch as the binnacle does a self test.

It would be worth swapping the fuse out incase it does have a hairline fracture though, had it before on other systems

Hi
Did you sort out the intermitent problem with the speedo and other dials.
I have a similar problem and it is driving me crazy.

Intermittent problems with guages and dials, on the E39 specifically is often down to one of the ABS sensors failing, or damaged in the wheel well.

I "think" it is the LHS rear - but you'd need to confirm this.
