Used to be dead batteries on the SI board under the cluster board would cause that. It depends on how yours is equipped, the batteries were deleted during the production run but I don't remember exactly when.

evidently you have to get beemer specialist to sort this one.I had same problem but after submitting car to auto-electrical outfit,they arranged for some module inside the dash itself-which had to be sent away-to be replaced.Everything going fine now though,although I am $400NZ lighter !
