Not sure about the check brakelines - are you sure it's not brake lights?
If all your rear lights are working, pull the bulbs out individually and check to see if any of them have any discoloration or if any have the gold-colored base. BMWs like the silver colored bulb bases. The difference in resistance is enough to trick the lamp module into thinking a bulb is out.

headlights - sounds like the daytime running lights are enabled. That's a trip the dealer to reset your preferences.

1. Did you replace the brake wear sensor? You might not put them back in right. You can NOT re-use them once they stripped.

2. That's your DRL when your engine is running. You need to code the LCM to turn them off. If they are on even without the key in the ignition, you might have problem with the LCM

3. Speedometer is fine? How about cruise control? Any other light on the cluster?
