I am having problems with my brake / reversing and fog lights.
Last week only the reversing light on the drivers side was working, also the side light and brake light was dim. A few days ago the bulb error messages appeared. I changed all the bulbs and now only the reversing light on the passenger side works!
I have checked on this site and found out it may have been the ground/negative. One side is has a small amount of burn but not that much.
I contacted the only BMW specialist I knew and popped down to see him as he was certain he knew what the problem was. He was going to charge me £160.00 to replace all bulb holders / connectors and run a new negative wire. When I arrived he changed his mind and wanted me to pay £175.00 an hour for him to run some tests before any work was carried out!
Having spoken to a few other people on the phone, it doesnt appear that they have a clue what they are looking for. It seems they want to charge me just to read the faults from there machine and not delv into finding the problem.
Does anyone know of a garage / person who will be able to identify the problem and charges a reasonable amount? I honestly dont think £175.00 an hour is reasonable!
