LED Clock ???????????

I have lost my clock Display on my dash of My 528i e28 1985 BMW.
Just stopped on the way home from Trianning, I have been using my Front fog lamp quite a bit and have just installed a new idle air valve,
The display on the Clock can been seen during the Day if i look very closley but during the night its not displaying...
Not sure were to start.
I have tryied to adjust the dimmer control on the dash lights and turn lamps on & off but no difference.

Well i havn`t looked at the fuse panel as of yet but i am thinking that the clocks LED power supply has lost a ground from the common rail of the clocks display...

Could anyone say that they have had similar problems?
I would rather go straight to the fault then pull things apart to find that i have achieved how to dismantel my near perfect dash board.

I Do not at the moment have Mechanical Repair manual with Diagrams so im looking at things very simply as i need to repair them...

Faulty Clock?
Faulty Fuse?
Loose Wire?
Ignition Switch Acc Relay?

Note: Everything else is working a per Normal . Its getting colder here Australia and the Heater has been on a fair bit.
No clock, no good.

sounds to me just like a dead bulb?? maybe theres more then one bulb back there to light it?? dono... if you check the fuse box and all checks out good i would pop it out and check for how the bulbs are wired to check for loose wires and then to see if the bulbs just dead... if so this could be a good weekend job motivation to change the leds in your car to what ever color you want! haha good luck
