Help! No speedo, rev counter, lights or Mileometer

Hi, I have a 52 plate mini cooper and the Speedo, Rev counter most of the dash lights and the mileage have all gone out! No indicator clicks when there activated etc!! nothing?? also the orange background behind where the miles should be displayed is like flickering very faintly?? has anyone come across this or has any ideas please? think its beyond a fuse job! have read on here about the BCM module, but just thought id ask before purchasing one to try?
Cheers for any help

Have you got a good battery or checked its output, if it is the original BMW battery it will be starting to fail. If so this can cause strange electrical problems even though it may still be able to start the car ok.

I believe there is a secondary instrument control module built into the speedo assembly which could also be at fault?

Before replacing the BC1 check it for damp and corrosion, especially all the wiring connectors as they can sometimes be dried out, cleaned up and re-used. Also check it has the later plastic water shield fitted.
