Gina, In my opinion the reostat is broke, since the fuses are oke and all the panel lighting is gone. I asume your fuel quantity indicator works fine because it is on the same fuse. The bad news on this is that you have to remove the instrument cluster and therefor the steering wheel and whole dashboard has to be removed. Good luck, Arjen Nijhof Netherlands 1993 900i "Gina" <yginaynopsamcomspamthis> schreef in bericht > Greetings, > I have an '89 900 Turbo Convertible and have encountered the following problem: > When driving at night, the dashboard and gear indicator lights (manual...I > know, most unfortunate, right?) do not come on.
