2930Ok so I'm puzzled...
- Oct 15, 2004Hi All,
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Last night I was off to a restaurant to celebrate my wifes
birthday, anyway the car, 528, started first time (as always), I
realised when I switched on the lights that I must have left the
front fogs on after driving last time I used the car, I shifted
too far went passed drive into 3 realised then back into drive.
As I went back into drive the instrument lights flickered, and
as I pulled away I saw that the speedo wasn't working, neither
was the economy guage, everything else on the panel is fine.
Today I checked all the fuses, most of the holders and all of
the fuses are dirty/have some corrosion but there is nothing
blown, I moved them all slightly replaced the cover and took it
for a test drive, the speedo worked but after 1/4 of a mile it
flickered and ceased to work again. Looking in the Haynes manual
and the owners manual it doesn't list the speedo as being
connected to any of the fuses!
So... is it an instrument display problem and the fuse movement
just coincidence? (I don't like coincidences). Should I dump all
the fuses, clean all the contacts and fit all new fuses? Learn
enough German to worry it into working again? Pray to the gods
of old BMWs and hope they fix the problem?
Puzzled in Newcastle - and it's raining again!
