Since I started riding again this spring, suddenly I have no dash lights and the turn signal indicators are on all the time. If I use either turn signal the corresponding dash light will blink like its supposed to, when I cancel it, the dash indicator will go to the lighted state. But then occasionally, I will start the bike up and everything will work as it should. I would guess that it works the way it should 1 time out of 10. Any ideas on what might be causing this phenomenon or where I could start to look for the problem? Thanks in advance!

A quick scan of the diagram indicates the fault could be a missing ground on the dash lights. That could cause the turn indicators to light up all the time.

Thanks for the info. Any idea what grounds and where they might be located? I would hate to tear into this beast willy-nilly.

Sorry, It could be anywhere in the dash or a connector on outside. Look for brown wires as they are always grounds on the BMW.
