    Hey guys, it's showing on my dash board that my two rear lights are out and my front left one is too when infact they're all working fine. Any idea's whats up?

    Thanks again.

    I've had that problem with my rear brake lights before. A new brake light switch cured the problem after I went through all the preliminaries of cleaning the contacts on the bulbs and cleaning the connectors with switch cleaner. So start off by doing that first

    How much does that set you back?

    And is it a hard job? (never done it before)

    PS Thanks for moving it.

    For your car, the switch part number is 61316967601 and will cost £23.50 from the dealer.
    It just unclips from holder behind the brake pedal and then copy the adjustment onto the new one. But before you invest in the switch, first go about cleaning the contacts like I said .

    You should also check out your plugs to the rear lights as they are common for getting a bad connection, see here http://www.bmwtis.com/tsb/bulletins/...p/B630306g.htm

    Well I had this same problem a few weeks back with one tail light. Weird thing was - I had it for about a few days, and then the problem seemed to disapear! No doubt it will be back eventually though.
