: : If that fails try shining a bright light at the sensor in the display - that should make it go bright - after which it may operate as it should. I do not have experience with this approach but someone on the E39 board said it worked for them

: Thats what worked for me and so far, for around 4 other E39 owners. I have had to repeat the process once after 4 months or so.

: Good luck and let us know if this works

Add me to the list for whom it worked (00 528i). Thanks to the folks on this board for describing the solution.
