Unhappy Hi, New member here- trouble w/Instrumental Cluster

having problem with Instrumental Cluster on a 2002 BMW 325ci. Blinking lights on panel don't work, cant open convertible, radio buttons on steering wheel not working, etc I've disconnected the battery overnight and after reconnecting all seemed back to normal, only for a few seconds then problem started again. Please help as I don't want to bring to dealer and get ripped off. Thanks

I am not sure about the problem but is battery good? Have it tested because bad battery causes weird problems.

Thanks for responding. Yes, the battery is almost new. A mechanic says it needs to be reprogrammed, but no gaurantees it will work. Any other ideas?

Please help, still having problems. Some are intermittent, still cant open convertible top, radio said disabled, then started working again, blinking lights on dash started to work then stopped, same w/ radio buttons on steering wheel, many more, sometimes all is normal then starts up again. Thanks in advance for your time. I love the car but these issues r driving me nuts.
