Dont know the exact cause of that Niall but id disconnect the batt overnight to see, seems to solve a lot of e39 gremlins.
That e39 i had was very erractic with electrics.
Is the batt ok?
The battery is fine bud yeh I will try it when I get to work tomorow mate cheers
Cheers pal but it's not just my speedo it's the full dash appart from warning lights that where already on (airbag and brake pad) I will try the battery disconnect and check all fuses tomorow if fails I will check behind the speedo make sure all plugged in etc
Well this fixed itself over night :s fine this morning I even tried turning of and on a few times yday and never sorted. This morning everything was there! Crazy
That's the first time it's happened mate and it's fine now as well. A similar thing happened to my e36 the back lights went out couldn't find the problem took it to auto leccy and he said all he did was unplug something behind the glove box plugged it back in and it worked again... Crazy
If it does it again I would look into replacing the ignition switch as they can cause issues on the E39.
