    No.15 here on the gearbox http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...34&hg=23&fg=15

    Unplug the connector and with the ignition on, short across the 2 pins in the wiring connector with a piece of wire temporarily while someone checks if the lights come on.

    ^^^^what he said.

    dont have the engine running though, just the ignition on when you put it in reverse.
