You would need to test the cluster to see if it has failed. Appropriate scan tools would be required for the testing.

Well this answer is a generic one I now that I need to test cluster with scanner but before I do that what
other test have to be done (Fuses, wiring connections.) And if the cluster fail do I need to code replacement cluster?

Not fuses. This problem has to be adressed directly and if replacement is required, programing/coding has to be performed.

Well you could try disconnecting the battery, this is like a computer reset.
Remove key and open trunk, wait several minutes, then slacken the negative post clamp 10mm nut and remove post clamp. Wait 30 minutes and reconnect.

You know I read it again and I am not sure if you mean the back lighting for the display is dark or what?

I would scan the car with the BMW scan equipment and see if faults show up
