I have a 2000 528i with 82,000 miles on it. I've noticed that the radio station pre-set numbers "1" and "2" fade intermittently and then for no apparent reason come back on as brightly as before. It doesnt' seem to affect anythiing else. I've heard bad news about this models display lighting.

Possibly unrelated to this, the indicator on the dash for the passenger rear marker light comes on, but when I check it, it's perfectly fine. Then, just like the radio display, the warning light will go off and everthing's fine ... for a while.

Any ideas what these two things are and how or if they can be fixed?
