Hey all,

This question comes from a BMW friend of mine.

He has just retrofit nav+tv into an E39 that only had radio. As such has installed

MK4
16:9 boardmonitor
Video module
Loom
etc

However the boardmonitor is not displaying the date and time. Apparantly this is comes from the instrument cluster (of 'combi' as he called it) but the wiring does not match the schematic that is for the car.

Has anyone who has done a complete retrofit out there experienced the same problem?

Cheers,
Aaron (on behalf of Phil)

which loom did your friend get? as there are different ones depending on radio levels etc..

I believe it should pickup all sensor readings via the ibus connector located in the boot

I did it a few years ago, but i also had the low instrument cluster!

So no Time and Date on the bottom of the screen.

And i did have the complete and correct retrofit wiring loom!

some other OBD functions didn`t work either on the nav screen, but did work on the cluster.
