165,000 miles on my car, one day instrument panel lights went out, warning lights still come on. I noticed that quite a few other owners of this model have asked the same question ... could you give me any idea of what the answer is to this dilemna?

The most common issues i have seen are the contacts inside the instrument cluster become loose over time. The cluster is to be removed, dismantled in the middle, terminals tightened and re-assembled. Note this is only E36 and some models below that era

I have a 1994 325is. The odometer light is out. What are the possible causes? Can I fix these myself? Thank you. Dr. JJ

Check the trunk wire harness that goes to the truck lid. ALWAYS CRACKED - BMW FORUM COVER IT IN DETAIL HUGE ISSUE.
