I get an issue where my air con display goes black for a second or so randomly. No other lights go out and even the button LED's on the air con panel stay lit.

Dealer has had the car 5 times now, each coming back no fault found. Even though the car is under warranty, they now tell me that to do any further more in-depth investigations may lead to me having to pay if they can't find anything.

Is it likely that this is the same issue or is mine a faulty Climate Controller panel? Is the SIB North America only or Worldwide? Last one I took them about the transmission update they dismissed as NA only, but after several rants, 'found' one applicable to Europe. BMW customer service gets more like Ford every year

You issue does not appear to be related to the SIB I posted, which replaces the instrument cluster. It is probably as you mentioned, a faulty climate control module, since that is the only unit affected.

There is a clear disclaimer on the BMW TIS site that the SIBs are only effective for NA vehicles. So therefore, I cannot say if the same bulletin exists in Europe.

I had the odometer digital display fade in and out about four times. Took it into the dealer and they replaced the light module. The paperwork listed an internal malfunction of LSZ had a fault. Hasnít done it since but itís only been a week. Good luck

I know this is an old thread, but, I recently got an X3 cluster in for repair for non-functioning ambient temp sensor. I was shocked when I found the problem. The soldering on these clusters is HORRIBLE. The people that made the printed circuit board royally screwed up and I'm surprised I don't see more complaints of intermittent or solid cluster problems. Maybe the cluster I am looking at is a fluke and the problem was corrected. I hope it correct. I'm interested to know if you've had your instrument cluster replaced and what problem you experienced.
