Does anyone in Santa Barbara / Ventura / Oxnard have the PA Soft 1.4 or other software that they can help me with? I have a used cluster on the way to me but I'd rather not take it apart to unsolder/solder the m35080 chip. And i have no experience with the odb software. The cluster is the exact same model # as the one coming out of my car but it has 100k more miles on it than my car really has.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I have an E46 M3 and had to change out my cluster due to it being shorted (the back light didnt work and rpm gauge would intermittently work), however with this used cluster i got from a friend, my DCS and Brake lights stay on. Would this work for my cluster as well ? to flip the chips around.

thanks for your time in advance

Can i swap memory chip from km/h cluster to new mph cluster? Will it work in km/h after? I f*cked up my indocators when i removed them, and i dont know what to do. I have LHD car, but i am in UK now.

It's serendipitious that this thread got bumped today because for the last two days I have been scouring the internet trying to find a DIY fix for my cluster that went bad a couple days ago. This thread stands out more than any of the other ones I've read.

I want to do this fix described but unfortunately the picture in the OP's follow-up post showing what the M35080 chip looks like doesn't appear anymore.

Can anyone advise what the chip looks like? Is it clearly marked?

My other question is, how important is it that the used cluster I get comes from the same vehicle? I have a 2000 BMW 328.

I am going to PM the OP and see if he will stick his head in to answer questions.

Even if he doesn't I am going to give this a try and I will post my results.

And Twitzid, to answer your question, I think you can enter one of the "test modes" by holding in the trip reset button and turning the key and there is a way to change from km/h to mph.

Thank you! Maybe somebody know any DIY for fixing dial indicators? I removed them because i wanted to change background to white, but after i replace them, speed and oil meter didnt work. I dont what to change whole cluster, any tip? Cheers.


When im doing test, all needles are moving like they shoud exept speed needle, it keeps stucking. When i was removing the speed needle, it came off with that metal stick in it. So is it possible to change only the motor for it?

no m35080 chip on a 2000 328i, you should be able to do the swap with only PA soft (iirc)
