My Ride: E46 M3 Turbo
Dash issues help?????

Hope someone has seen this one before (already posted in general and no reply so thought I would try here)

While the car is running and driving fine the Tacho goes to 0, oil temp goes to 0, water temps goes max, handbrake light stays on and tyre sensor light stays on.

Cars been working fine and then this happened. Every thing else is good still. Battery is new and alternator is charging at 14.1v.

Any ideas appreciated.

My Ride: slower than yours
my reasoning:

your car is a hybrid, intermittently shutting itself off to conserve energy (tach at 0, running on pure bliss), water temp rises because the electrical motor generates enough heat to start boiling your coolant away so to make sure the car doesn't drive away, the e-brake pulls itself and deflates all of the tires at the same time to prevent robbery as well.

Ive had the tach twitch and go up very quickly and down while the car was turned off, but never just stop working like what you have stated.
after searching

it may be related to fuse or try reseting the gauge cluster
