    Recently bought a 330Ci and the rear lights check light has come on. I have checked all the rear light clusters and all appear to be working. The rear lights have been changed for LED's previously but the check light was not on when I bought it. Any ideas about something I might have missed?

    Do you have the stock lights to revert to as a test?

    No, unfortunately not. Not done anything different though and it was fine before, just came on for no reason?
