I have a 1983 528e one owner, it is immaculate, everything works except for speedometer and related items, i.e. cruise control, odometer/tripometer, the digital display works in all modes but speed and distance related. I am very DIY person, I have replaced trans axle sendering unit (cheapest fix) no success, replaced nicades on the cluster, the Varta's did not leak, board looks clean and no obvious burns or defects, both white and blue connectors on back of cluster are in correct posistion and places, however i did notice that the service indicator light cluster was removed along with it's ribbon cable that connects to cluster board. I was told to replace the cluster board, and would not mind spending the money if i knew for sure that it would fix situation.
Anyone have exactly the same problem and or maybe a test or check i can perform?
Any help would be appreciated
