TEMPERATURE AND TRIP METER DISPLAY

2006 BMW X5 • V8 AWD Automatic • 82,000 miles

For the past few days I have noticed on my display the outside temperature reading and trip meter are not very visible.

The display shows (left to right): mileage, trip mileage, and outside temperature.

The outside temperature is barely visible and the first 2 numbers of the trip meter are also barely visible. However, the next numbers of the trip meter and overall mileage are very clear.

Has anyone seen this problem before? Is the issue related to display problem that I should be concerned about and the worst is yet to come?

Thanks.J

The pixels are not illuminating, replacement of the entire display will restore the lost pixels.

Thanks. Do you know what price estimate? I have feeling I am looking at thousands of dollars. Unless only small part must be replaced. : )
