My 93 525i had the same problem. There is a small lamp (OS12/1.2) behind the controls which is a real bear to get to. I removed the radio in order to release a catch on the left side of the heater control panel. This allows you to pull out that panel from the left side by swinging it out. Then disconnect the 3 color coded control cables and remove any electrical connectors. Once you have the whole assembly out, remove 3 small phillips screws that hold the controls to the front plate. you'll see the lamp in there. Hope this makes sense.
