    Dash light issue

    Hello. Just bought a 528 from -85. I only get dash light when the light switch is in park position. The rest of the interior as the climate controll light up too. But when i turn on the headlights the dash and the rest goes dark. I have open the light switch and cleaned it but did not help. What could be wrong?

    The "headlight on" contacts could be fried and "open." This light switch is commodity and used on many models. I have a very good used one on hand from my '85 e28 parts car. Check for voltages on outputs of switch to see if opens exist.
