: The odometer on my 89 535i resets itself every time I switch the ignition off.
: Could it be that the battery in the cluster has gone bad?
: And some times the gauges go bananas when switching the ignition on...also the fasten your seatbelts sign appears in german.
: Has this happened to anybody else?
: If anyone knows about this please let me know.
: Thanks.

Your circuit board is acting up. You probably have to replace the capacitors which is a cheap and quick fix. Check the 7 series board and do a search for "instrument cluster" or "circuit board."

Best regards,
