Dashboard Intruments out

I have a 99 528i with 110k miles. The dashboard instruments started intermittently cutting in and out yesterday. Whatever the issue is, it also affects the air conditioning and the clock on the radio. The radio otherwise works fine. Drove 15 miles to work this morning and working fine. I presume there is a loose wire somewhere, or whatever controls the dashboard instruments is going bad? Any ideas?

General Control Module or a Duff set of clocks, the latter is usually caused by a faulty regulator on rear of clocks !

It is not just a clock issue, as the entire instrument cluster on th dash goes out as well. Talking fuel gauge, odometer, rpm gauge, etc.... I though maybe I had a loose fuse, but I don't think that is the problem.

Hmmm you may be right.. Try yanking all the fuses you can get to (one by one) and replacing them... If that fails, it could be a dodgy wire... Have ago pal...
