Hi people and thanks in advance if you can help. Just bought a BMW 316i 1998 ( R reg ) and when im pressing the brakes or indicating...theres a light on the dashboard thats flashing up. Its not coming on at any other time. Theres a loose connection on one of the back lights ( the bulbs are fine...just a loose connection ) so when I viewed the car, the reverse light and the brake light on one side wasnt working. Played about a bit with it and theres definately a loose connection there. Im hoping that the light that is flashing up when im hitting the brakes or indicating is just telling me that theres a loose connection and not that the brakes are gona fail! Anyone know?
Thanks
Kate

Hi :) Errr...all I know is that its to the left hand side of the dashboard. Ive done a search on google to try and find out what light it is but no joy and I dont have a handbook for the car. By the way...it only flashes up when indicating to the right but not the left.

If its not doing it when the wires are in place, could it just be that the light flashing up is telling me that theres a fault with the wires?
Looking at the above pics...it dosnt look like any of them.
