Before you say it, I did search, and my eyes hurt after pouring over 42 pages of search results for "brake lights".
My brake light circuit warning light comes on randomly, more times than not as of late. I have checked, rechecked, changed out, and rechecked the bulbs again and again.
In some of the search results I have seen where there have been problems with the brake light switch, but I never saw any mid-80's E30s referenced, only 1990's E36's.
I wonder if the brake light switch could be my problem also.
Any ideas, or confirmation of the brake light switch will be appreciated.
I have some other issues, but I will exhaust the search function before I post on them. A lot of good inof here. Thanks for the site.

I will have OSRAM 7506, 12v 21w bulbs in there. They even say Germany on them, so I guess they are right. I wonder what will happen is I ever try to put LEDs in there.
I have never had a problem with my ABS, that I know of. That's what made me fall in love with the car in the first place.
I will check into a brake light switch today.
| The dealer must not have heard the year right, because he gave me a switch that looks like what most threads here describe, the plastic one with a red insert. icon_smile_banghead.gif |
Back to the dealer tomorrow....
