Question about BMW 545

1997 BMW 540i Some of the MID pixels for the radio and computer are not lighting up; how can I repair these without replacing the board for $600? (The light bulbs are fine; it's the pixels themselves). Thanks, Nick

I have a BMW 528i 1997. Last night, the battery light came on, followed by the traction control light, then the ABS, and finally the brake light. It went on for a few minutes then the dashboard started...


I had a BMW 540i 2000 and that happen to me, my advice is to get the battery out of the car and recharge it. It would be advisable to have it check for malfunctioning. If it is ok, put it back on and the car will start. If not good, put a new battery, the car will start and all the lights will work in order.

Probably you could loos your radio set up and clock set up if you took too much time in the replacement of the battery, don't worry, reset the clock and the radio stations.

Cd changer


Look in the back where the cd changer used to be if there are any loose wires make sure that they are not touching, If there arent any wires touching, Check the fuse box and see if the radio fuse has blown.
