528i Brake Light and Electrical Issues

I replaced the ignition switch to take care of some electrical issues.
The dash lights went out and turn signals and brakes lights stopped working.
Now I have dash lights and a right turn and stop light working.
Middle stop light and right turn signal and brake light not working.
Any advise?

Welcome to Bimmerfest! What year is your 528i? That will help members of the site make suggestions on the issue.

I've moved your question over to the E39 5 series forum, you will get more help in here. Could the ongoing issues be from what you were trying to fix with the new ignition? Give us the back story.
