Instrumental Panel lights out
 
Hi all! This is my first post on here and I have had 318ti for about 4 months now, it being my first car. When I bought it the radio did not send out audio, so im the process of replacing it, i shorted a wire. After fixing my rheostat with a solder job and replacing fuse #37 everything was back to normal.

Well.... i couldn’t correctly fit the rheostat back in the dash and in the process I think I shorted something or pinched a wire? My headlights and tail lights work when I have the dimmer knob pulled out the way but my instrumental panel and gauges do not light up. Any help? When I noticed it, I pulled the light amp that’s connected to the dimmer switch and they came back for a second, but I couldn’t get them to come on anymore. Maybe I unplugged some of the wiring? I was tugging on that light amp to position the dimmer switch back into its place.

What do you mean by "light amp"? You said "...pulled the light amp thatís connected to the dimmer..." I don't understand that.

It sounds like the headlight switch which includes the gauge light rheostat (dimmer) is bad.
