If everything keeps going like that then it sounds like its a problem with the onboard computer. The computer controls all the guages and would explain why they all fail at the same time.

SOURCE: instrument panel cluster gauges and odometer has stopped working

I had all my analog instrument panel gauges stop working after they did the state emissions test. I found the proper fuse in the fuse block located under the hood. Simply unplugged the fuse, noticed it was still good, and plugged the same fuse (10A) back in and all the gauges started working again. Guess it needed a reset atfer they plugged in for the emissions.

SOURCE: 95 saab 900 turb0 gauge cluster works intermetanly

I have this problem too and my new Saab mechanic told me that I would probably need a new instrument cluster. He said a brand new one costs $2500 but that he would order me a used one from a car that had fewer miles than mine as you can set them back but not forward. He both diagnosed and temporarily "fixed" the problem by slamming his hand really hard on the dash over the panel and all the lights and gauges immediately started working fine....for now. I haven't had the work done yet (I have a 1998 Saab 900S with 130K) so if anyone has any other ideas about this I would love to know what they are. This issue with the gauges and dash lights has been happening on and off for over a YEAR and this is the first time someone has had any idea what it is. I already had my ignition switched replaced so we know that's not what it was. THANKS

My daughters 1995 BMW 318i has dashboard cluster not working. Any suggestions on how to repair this?


Common problem on these cars. Had this happen on the wifes car and I could not find any one on line to repair it. NLA from BMW. They want you to purchase a later cluster along with wiring adapters to make it work. It is a cluster F***. Tried it and no sucess. I am a tech with 35 years working on these cars. Finally got one with about the same mileage on ebay. Working fine for 3 years now.

Problems with right side gauges not working in a 1986 bmw 325.


if your rpm gauge temp gauge and your odometer stop working in your 1986 bmw 325 check the sid batteries located inside the instrument cluster. chances are those are blown up. checked mine today and they were covered in battery acid. i replaced them with new ones and everything works now. tip they need to be rechargeable batteries. The altenator recharges them as the car is on.

Please help 1999 318i bmw..speedo not working fuel & temperature gauge flickering constantly...whats wrong???


I fix a lot of clusters. Most of the time it is just a bad connection at the plug. Since you 3 unrelated things, I would guess at this is your problem. Moist bezels around the dash just pop off. You'll have to remove the kick panel under the steering wheel fist, it has screws on the bottom. Just look at the bezels and see if you find any screws

BMW Error message - PPPPPPP plizzz wat problem ? BMW Error message - PPPPPPP -bmw-318i


sounds to me like a faulty instrument cluster. With the "ppppppp" displayed in the readout means that the cluster is missing its coding. So if this is happening intermittentntly it would point to an internal cluster issue.

97 318i Instrument Cluster


these dashboards are a a pain! there are fuses in the fusebo under the bonnet, check them firt, also remove them and put them back to see if it resets it, if not then there is a test you can do,,,,,

press the mileage button on the dash, turn the ignition key to position one release the button and the das should perform a complete check, i.e gauges and mileage pixel.

Good luck Davelee, p.s, please rate me.
