    Hi i'm hoping someone can help. I have a 1995 E38 740i and have recently noticed that when i turn the ignition to posistion 1 my brake lights come on and stay on.
    I've disconected the brake light switch but still they stay on, so i'm thinking the fault lies in the light control module although the only way to test this would be to get a replacement. There are no fault messages on the check control and all the other lights work fine.
    Any help would be very welcome.

    Thanks in advance.

    Steve.

    May be worth getting the fault codes read for the light control module intensesteviel, any main dealer or BMW Indy specialist with a Autologic machine will be able to do this for you

    Also what is the build date of your car? will be on a sticker under the bonnet

    Thanks for the reply, think i will take it to my local Indy and see if they can shed any light on it, just a bit difficult to drive with your brake lights permantly on.

    Build date is June 94.
