: Hello people;
: I've got a weird problem which has disappointed my enjoyment of my E46. I
: have a "random" dash light problem. Example, after 10-15 minutes driving, my
: Flasher Don't work on my dash! They work from the outside, I see all my
: lights outside flashing, but the green arrow fails to flash inside the dash.
: When the problem occurs, none of my lights inside the dash works! Like my
: fog-lights. Again, the fog light switch works, the fog lights go on and off,
: but the light on the dash tell me its status fails to work. Also my
: seat-belt light.
: I can correct the problem, by turning off the car, and turning it back on.
: But its a matter of time till it happens. I noticed it happens "faster" when
: its raining out.
: Yes, I will be contacting BMW in the morning, the problem began Friday
: night! This is really disappoint my enjoy ment of the car.
: Anybody have any ideas? What it could be?
I would definately bring it to the dealer.
Could it be a computer problem or a wiring problem?
Either way, I'm sure they will fix it for you.
Don't get too bummed. It'll be fixed soon !
But I understand how you feel! I would feel the same way! It just makes you less confident about the car. And the lighting in the dash is one of my favorite parts about the interior.
