This one worked for me also. Have to do it again every once in a while - about every 4 months or so.
Arland... '00 528 sp/pp
: : 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
