I suggest you to have your ribbon replaced so you can fully read without any problem. I probably have to go with check oil level or coolant level.

Why don't you buy a $20 OBDII Bluetooth module. Or pay the low price to get your readout fixed. Have you ever heard the phrase 'penny wise, pound foolish' ?

Well given that the word Check is at the far left of the display, and the messages are centered in it, whatever it says is equal to the longest message that can be displayed, at 20 characters iirc.

Initially I though Check Coolant Level, but both Check Engine Oil Level and Check Highbeam Light are longer, and would fill the display. I'd work backwards and turn all the lights on and see if any are missing.

Then get the ribbon mended :)

Here are the possibilities...

List of all possible BMW E39 instrument cluster text warnings & text messages - Bimmerfest - BMW Forums
CHECK BACK UP LIGHTS
CHECK BRAKE FLUID
CHECK BRAKE LIGHTS
CHECK BRAKE LININGS
CHECK CONTROL OK
CHECK COOLANT LEVEL
CHECK ENGINE OIL

CHECK FRONT FOGLAMPS
CHECK HIGH BEAM BULB
CHECK HIGHBEAM LIGHT
CHECK LICPLATE LIGHT
CHECK LOW BEAM BULB
CHECK LOWBEAM LIGHTS

INPA might help, as would calling DoctorBeemer IIRC, $150 to fix the pixels.

AGM5. Love it you always respond with the practical/logical side to the questions. The rest of us spend a lot of time on conjecture.
