I noticed recently when I parked the car up temporarily that about 10 of my LEDs in my rear cluster have stopped working.
I took them out to have a look, and couldnt see any evidence that any of them were blown out, so I put them back in and when I turned the lights on they came on for a second, then went out soon after again.
So does this indicate that it is likely that it is not the LED's and is a connection fault?
I have bought 20 spare LED's (as I found them for £3 online) just in case and I am capable of re-soldering these if they are the issue.
Now however, I am contemplating that this perhaps could be an earthing issue?
Can anyone suggest what may be the problem here? I am also getting random symbols on my dashboard going on and off, which Im sure is a symptom of a bad earth somewhere is it not?
As always I really appreciate constructive comment to try and diagnose. Where would I start first? I have a voltmeter etc? Where are the earths located on the beemer?
Look forward to your comment
