    Hi all,

    head scratching time for me HELP..

    Brake lights on permanently on my e46 convertible 318ci.
    Plus when I take the keys out of the ignition the dash warning lights stay on.
    Thought it was the brake light switch, so I have replaced that..still the same.
    Checked wiring to the rear clusters and all seems ok..
    The wiring that goes through to boot lid into the boot area has been checked. I did a repair there a few months ago because the bootlid wouldnt open..broken wire found there and fixed..all seems in order there..
    any one have any ideas?

    suspect one off the wires from the switch is permanently earthed ( and should not be) ... ie rubbed through ...possible bootlid wiring again.
