This may sound strange, but do your mfl buttons work with the radio on?

You likely have a bad abs/speed sensor. Pa soft 1.4 can diagnose this for you. E39's dsc modules go bad often with the same results,but in e46 it is usually the sensor. One ds front,one ps rear. Is your traction contol light on also?

Try doing "the e46 cluster test" I think there is a YouTube vid for it,or you can just Google it. At least then you will know if the gauge itself is bad.

Edit:is that what you mean you did in the first post?
