I am hoping someone can help me with this. I own a 2013 428i coupe.

A few weeks ago, intermittently I started receiving error messages saying that the left rear indicator light was not working, and sometimes that the left break light wasnt working. Sometimes it was just one and sometimes it would be both at the same time.

Most of the time, within a few seconds or minutes (often when I either pressed the break or used the left indicator), the error would go away and everything would be fine.

However a couple of days ago, both error messages came back and are now permanent. I have checked and in fact neither of the lights is working (left outer lights/passenger).

So yesterday, I changed the left indicator bulb and the error message has not gone away and it is still not working (i checked the bulbs and they all look fine to me).

This makes me think there may be an issue with the actual lamp unit, rather than the bulbs. Particularly as the errors would randomly appear and stop for the past few weeks.

Anyone have any advise please?
