Question about 2001 BMW 325
Hi i have a 2001 328i touring and for some unknown reason half the dash lights stay on all the time even when ignition off and its locked they stay on all night , still on next mornin when i get up up !!wierd!!
Hi, you have either one of the two problems.
First one is that your key switch is knackered & your ignition switch will have to be replaced.
The second one is, did anyone clock your car before you bought it or it is possable that the eprom in the dash unit has went la la.( this little chip controls a lot on the dash inc the mileage).
You can tell if the key switch is knackered if the radio still keeps going as well as the heating system.
The other fault that also links to this that the dash relays in the fuse box area could be faulty.
I would start with these simple things first before ripping out the clocks & key switch.
It is possable it could be a stuck relay. Just remove each one in turn with the ign on to see which one drops out the dash.
Will check here on my system on this model to see what way it is wired.
