Yes, the error is "Parking Light". So as I understand it, the front parking/turn signal is a strong suspect. I will check those on tomorrow and report back tomorrow night. Thanks for the tips.

Parking Light Warning (Check Control)

I have a 2001 740i and the "Check Parking Light" comes on upon starting and after switching the ignition off. All the lights are working but I still get the warning. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance...

Just a quick off the cuff answer, Instead of driving around with spent ashes, just suck out the ashes with a vacuum cleaner until you figure it out or someone provide a better answer.

I had the tires balanced last week at Firestone and they are listed to have that piece of equipment. However, they don't have the straight trak machine. I will call them tomorrow.

It has 148,000. The center bearing support is suspect because the noise is center-rear. So, if its that, do you repair the bearing or is it best to install a complete rebuilt shaft??
