Lighting Issue

Hello Everyone:

I am looking for a potential cause of this problem:

1. Passenger taillight is out
2. Left turn signal does not work
3. Front parking light is out
4. Dash lights out.
5. Fuse 6 is blown.
6. When fuse is replaced, everything works for a few seconds before the fuse blows again.

A electrical shot is expected however, any ideas where to look first?http://s1.bimmerfest.com/forums/imag...lies/mecry.gif

Check your LKM (light control module).

I had the same issue a few weeks ago.
Have you recently replaced your bulbs?
