BMW 5 Series Dashboard Instrument Cluster Repairs

BMW 5 Series Instrument Cluster ProblemsBMW 5 Series Dashboard Instrument Cluster Repairs
Instrument Clusters are common failing parts on many vehicles, especially the BMW 5 Series. The instrument cluster faults are not specific to certain models, all the BMW 5 Series E34 / E39 / E60 / E61 can be affected, with the faults varying from model to model.

Common Instrument Cluster / Dashboard Problems
The most common faults that have been found with the BMW 5 Series Instrument Clusters include:

  • Gauge Failure
  • Background Illumination Failure
  • No SoundGauges Flicker & Reset to 0
  • LCD is Faded or Pixelated
  • Speed Stays at 0MPH
  • Complete Power Failure
  • Outside Temp Display Failure / Incorrect
  • Odometer Display Failure / Incorrect
  • Trip Computer Failure / Incorrect

Faulty instrument clusters can either be repaired / rebuilt or replaced however each of these options come with different cost implications. If you decide to replace your instrument cluster, it will only come with a 12-month warranty and it will also need to be coded / programmed to your vehicle which will be done at an additional cost. You can also purchase a second-hand used part which will work out cheaper initially, and will come with a limited warranty of 30-90 days. However, it will need coding / programming to your vehicle, and all used instrument clusters must also be calibrated to read the correct mileage which is usually at an additional cost.
