Malfunctioning dashboard lights?

While driving earlier today, the lights of the dash (ALL the lights) went out for approx. 5 seconds, then came back on. It hasn't happened since. Has anyone had this problem? If so, what was the fix, and is this trivial, or should I be worried? What makes this even worse is that I'm going on a business trip tomorrow and will be gone for a week, so I won't be able to have the stealer check this out until I get back. So, I'm basically seeking assurance that my car will function appropriately when I get back into town in a week! Help!

i had the same thing happen in my 2005 X3 two days ago. all the dash lights went dim for about 20 seconds. i was trying to see if my headlights went on causing the dash to dim, but my switch was in the off position.

weird stuff....

I can only hope that the car will function as it should when I get back to town on Saturday! Once I have the dealer look into the problem, I'll post whatever solution I'm given.

I've had this happen to my 05 X3 about 4 or 5 times now. The lights go completely out for a few seconds then mysteriously come back on. I notice that when this happens the dimmer control light doesn't function either. Will get it checked out on the first maintenance coming up soon.

Fill me in on what your dealer has to say. Thanks!

Well, after 2 trips to the dealer, they couldn't replicate the problem, and were apparently unable to find any error codes, etc. Yeah, that was a big surprise! Anyway, it hasn't happened since, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it was a transient issue that will not recur!

I had the exact same thing happen to me but they went out for almost a minute. The dealership couldn't figure out why that happened but it never happened again. Hmmm.....
