BMW 523 BATTERY PROBLEM

1998 BMW 523 • 144,000 miles

The main computer display on dash went blank, for a few weeks now then yesterday the indicators on the dash stopped working, pulled over and checked all exterior indicators and there all working fine turned engine off then on, and the signal indicators on the dash started working again. Then today they stopped working again also at the same time the fog indicator on the display stopped working aswell as the main beem indicator but I checked and bulbs and exterior lights are all working fine not only that the rear parking sensor beeps have stopped,
how can they all be related been looking at posts and signifies faulty ignition switch but not sure.

Had new battery put in last week.
Checked fuses they are fine.
Help much appreciated, thanks

It could be an internal issue with the instrument cluster. A scan with the BMW proprietary scan tool is in order.
