In Reply to: '89 535i Dash problems posted by Rick Halvey on January 05, 2000 at 01:49:21:

: Hi there - When I bought my 89 535i 5 speed last April (amazing condition, euro version, original owner was BMW mechanic, only 80K), I thought my life had changed for the better, but after dumping $1700 on a new AC compressor, aux fan and evaporator valve, another $300 on the drivers seat, $400 for a sunroof recabling and a new set of Pirelli's, I thought the worst was over.

: I started the car the other day, only to discover that the fuel gage and temp guage were dead, the odometer was blank, and the dash readout was dead. Other than this, the car runs fine, but I've been scared to take it in to see whats going on. Any thoughts on what may be the cause?

: Thanks very much.
