BMW e39 5 Series Computer Readout Fails

If your BMW e39 5 series computer readout fails, we can help! Our BMW service technicians in Jacksonville, FL specialize in BMW repairs.

Released in the U.S. in 1997, the BMW e39 5-series dominated the luxury car market until 2003. The series included the Sport, Sedan and Touring models, and they were some of the most technologically advanced Bimmers to hit the road. Each car was built with Flexible Electronics Design, so that both the in-car entertainment and navigation systems could be upgraded to keep pace with the rest of the world. As with all advancements in technology, there are also bugs. For the e39 five-series, it is common for the computer readout to fail, and it is known to be hard to read and drop pixels.

This can be very troublesome as the LCD display in the 5-series e39 is part of the on-board computer. The computer displays the mileage, as well as other important information. And without knowing the mileage, a Bimmer owner can’t take their vehicle it in for regular oil changes or BMW Inspection 1 or BMW Inspection 2 services that are scheduled based on time and mileage. This could lead to neglecting important maintenance and might jeopardize other systems in the vehicle.

If the LCD display on your BMW dashboard instrument panel looks like a mess of nonsense letters and numbers or is jumbled, the vehicle likely has a faulty ribbon cable. The ribbon cable transmits data from the circuit board to the LCD display. The problem could also be from a defective instrument cluster. It takes someone with experience, that knows how to recode the instrument panel to fix this. You can  contact highly trained BMW service specialists, like us, to perform the repairs. We have the necessary parts and know-how to fix the LCD display, and possibly prevent other problems in the future.
