SOURCE: took my 2001 bmw 330ci

I would get the body shop to pay for the repair. Why did they drain the battery? If it was working when you took it to them and it was not "imedieatly" after picking it up, I would suspect it is there fault. They are going to claim coincidental damage and not their fault. But because they stated that they drained the battery, they must have jump started it and if I were you, I would claim the jump start damaged the nav computer.

If you are unable to get them to pay for it, I would then shop around. On EBay, you can get a nav system for under $1000 so ..... you should be able to save up to $2500

Good luck, Jim

CHECK 5 AMP FUSE TO THE POWER DISTRIBUTION CIRCUIT WHICH SENDS POWER TO THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER.IF FUSE OKAY.EITHER CLUSTER HAS A LOOSE WIRE OR CLUSTER SHORTED OUT.IF CLUSTER IS FAULTY. THE BMW HAS TO REPLACE THE CLUSTER BECAUSE NEW CLUSTER HAS TO BE CODED TO MATCH THE VECHICLE.

SOURCE: bmw z3 1999 will not crank

The problem sounds like the battery has run down. Even though the ignition is off, things like clocks and the radio draw small amounts of power to retain their settings, and the instrument cluster doesn't draw as much power as the starter. It usually takes about a month or so to drain the battery. Try jump starting the car, or put it on a battery charger for a while.

I replaced my instrument cluster with a used cluster (BMW X5, 03') the brake lights are all on now. How do I match the new cluster with my X5?


The lights are all on because of a loss of power. If you test drive the car, once you reach 15 mph, the lights should reset. Matching the cluster will set the odometer to the CPU odometer (actual miles).

Hi i have a 2000 model bmw 328ci i had the battery replaced now the instrument cluster aircon and tv satnav dont work ? is this from the people that installed the battery your advice would be good thankyou


You need to enter your factory security code to reset. Happens anytime you disconnect battery power. You SHOULD have a little card in your owners manual (book) with the code on it. If not you're going to have to contact BMW & provide VIN# or units serial #

How do you reset the service engine light on a 2006 525i


In 2006 BMW developed what they Condition Based Service (CBS), this means even when you change the oil and filter, the only way to reset the service indicator is to take it to the dealer, to be hooked up to thier computer. I have the same problem, I am waiting for some aftermaket code breaker to be developed to fix this problem. Hope this helps, let me know.

Bmw e30, mpg and rev counter not working. all other dials do work though. service lights can be and have been reset.


Have you removed the instrument cluster to check/replace the batteries on the Service Indicator (SI) board? These batteries go dead eventually and require replacement. BatteriesPlus carry the right type and will solder new connections for you. Replacement on the board itself requires soldering skills and equipment. This is something BatteriesPlus will also do, for a fee.

How to turn services light off for a 323 bmw


The way to reset any E46 BMW (3 series 1999-2005) is as follows:

Turn the car off and then hold in the odometer reset button on the left side of the dash. Turn the key to on but not start. Hold for a few seconds and the service reminder will show in the instrument panel. Release then double push the button and the service reminder will reset. If you just keep single pushing at that point, you will be surprised about all the information you can learn.
