Had my 2008 M5 sitting for the better part of the last 2 weeks. This morning when my wife took it out, all the gauges stopped working. Speedo stays at 0mph, interior lights don't work either.

However, the car drives fine, and exterior lights work fine. Any idea what could be the cause? battery?

May want to take a look at the fuse panel and see if there is a fuse that is blown.

Got it back from dealer. It was a bad negative battery cable. I have no idea how that could cause the gauge clusters to go blank but still start the car and drive fine.

It's obvious you shouldn't let your wife drive it. Sorry...I just had to.
