thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

most likely you just need to replace the bulbs then, here is info to do so: http://www.meeknet.co.uk/e31/BMW_E31_Instrument_Cluster_Bulb_replacement.htm

.

if the lights still don't come on with new bulbs, then the fault is internal to the cluster itself
