    Sometimes when I turn the car off and take the fob out, the brake lights and front lights stay on. If I put the fob back in the car it won't start. The only way to get it to start is to disconnect the battery and connect it back again. Some days this happens 3 to 4 times My mechanic has...

    I had a problem with 2002 325i-- brake lights were on all the time when the ignition was on. I took it to the dealer and it took them 3 hours, cost me $522 and all they did was install the #32 fuse.

    I'm a new to BMW and the forum, so bear with me if my explanation of what is happening is not clear, but here's what happening: When I turn the engine off, the back brake lights stay on for around 15 minutes, then they turn off. The only light inside on the panel that indicates a problem is...

    Hi everyone, I'm sorta new to the 80's BMWs and see all the electrical gremlins. I've worked most of my E28 issues out but recently when I've been driving around my brake lights randomly stop working at the same time the clock light that gets brighter with the dash dial stops working at the...

    Hey guys, Obviously new to the forum, but also new to all these electrical issues starting to come about in my e39.

    After having my newly purchased (used) Z-4 home for a while, I am slowly getting used to this very cool car! So, a few minor things are beginning to appear. After washing the car, I noticed that the lens on the rear brake light was cracked! My mechanic ordered an inexpensive replacement set...

    My left rear LED light is out, and I can't even get it out to study it. I see the connector harness clip (still depressing that and can't get it out) and then there is another plastic clip on the bottom of the plastic assembly. Can someone point me to a replacement procedure and where to buy...

    I'm looking to replace the incandescent turn signals (f&r) and brake lights with led bulbs. So I figured out you need error free canbus compatible LEDs, PY21W for the front turn signals and P21Ws for the rear lights and I think the rear signals? Does anyone have any experience with doing this...

    Hi, I am after the rear lamp assembly, drivers side for the X5 E53 2002 model. My rear brake lamp holder looked burnt so when I replaced the holder, there was still no light from the bulb. I have been advised to change the whole cluster. I am in Birmingham, UK. Thank you all.

    I just bought an e30, and I'm a total girl when it comes to cars. My brake lights don't work when the car is off, and I was wondering if that is a BMW thing, or if it's something wrong? Every other car I've had hasn't done that.. Thanks!

    1995 940i One day I had a brake light out (right side), so when i removed the bulb I noticed that the fillament was ok but the socket sat in the housing a little loose. So I removed the entire light assembly to see what was going on and noticed that the plastic underneath the power/ground...

    Hello! I have recently purchased a 2001 740IL. Since i've had the car, I have had to do some normal front end work. As soon as I got the car back, took it through the wash - the 3 lights came on! The ABS, DSC and BRAKE lights are all lit up.. What could be the issue? The car seems to ride...
