Dashboard lights gone dim

I've got a 1998 BMW 318i. The lights in my dashboard display have all gone dim and so has the radio, although the radio display dimmed a good while before the dash. Can I change a fuse maybe or is it a bigger job?

Why would the radio display light be out? also need a clear ez to read fuse box display for inside fuse box


Because the bulb(s) are blown - is one guess. Most factory radio lighting is tied to the dashboard lights. You can tell for sure if the radio lighting used to dim when you adjust the dashboard lighting intensity. If they were separate, then it could be a problem with a connection at the back of the radio or internal.

There an orange indication on the dashboard of my bmw 318i shaped like an engine.


That means a fault code has been loaded into the computer memory. You will need to connect a scan tool to the ODBII port and read the code to determine what is wrong.

1997 bmw 328i dash lights all lit up at once and after several minutes they faded, and eventually the headlights and dashboard lights dimmed.


Alternator. Have it tested with a voltmeter while on the car and running. Or take it off and have it tested. The current to run the car and the accessories is from the alternator when the engine is running. The battery light coming on alerts you that the alternator is not doing its job.

Volvo s80 dashboard fault


This is a known problem although Volvo will not admit it. The dash needs to come out (10 min job) and sent away for a simple repair. Total cost is about £150 but you will need to get the SRS warning that will be showing in the LED message display cancelled by a Volvo dealer after the dash has come back. Don't try a scrapyard dashboard the ECUs have IP addresses. I used a company in Kent to do the repair. Get onto Google there may be a repairer more local.

No display dashboard or radio


on some models there is bulbs behind the dash and some have curcuits and you have to replace the whole cluster if you go to a salvage yard look at date just inside drivers door of when car was made and find one close to that date and it should work and as for the radio there is a bulb behind it check all fuses first
