87 325i Check Panel acting kooky.

My last car, 86 325e had a flashing check light on the speedo which I could turn off by pressing check button on check panel. Now Im working on my brothers 87 325i vert and the check light is permanently lit on the speedometer and pressing check on the check panel does nothing when pressed. Also sometimes the cars faults will only show up on the check panel when I depress the brake. Anyone ever have these issues?

That's very unusual. My first guess is a bad ground somewhere. May not be easy to find...
