Stop Light Malfunction
I have seen threads about this annoying problem in other forums, specifically for E-46 models.
My E-70 2007 X5 give us this warning of the Left Rear Stop Light Malfunction, but the light still works.
I tried to follow the advice on the E46 forum of installing an additional ground wire, but the layout of the tail lights device is completely different in my E-70, and I am afraid of making a mistake.
Also they show a brown wire as ground and I don't see a brown wire in my car.
The plastic near the stop light socket shows signs of overheating (not fully melted yet).
Has anyone faced the same issue and have found a solution to share? Showing pictures would be great as always, but a good description (for dummies) would work too.
I love this forum, I have found so many helpful tips! Thanks everyone.
