Customer Question

I have a 2011 (build date 2010) SLuev engine 328xi coupe w/ Manual transmission. Every once in a while - all the idiot lights lightup on the dash and blink - and then go out - speedo and tach go dead (drop to zero) and then come back on - and leave with 1 or 2 alarm lights - which then go out next time you start the car........... and it leaves no codes in the computer
JA: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?
Customer: It's not the dash bulbs - they all work
JA: What year is your Coupe?
Customer: 2011
JA: Are you fixing your Coupe yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Really I normally just ignore it because it self clears - but I'm looking to sell it and would prefer to not have this happening...... and I don't want to take to dealer and spend big $$ chasing a ghost
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: nope
