I have (finally) installed some nice clear tail lights. These are OEM BMW-made ones. After I've done installing them, I check all lights and see that all of them work (turn signals, reverse, etc), but the left brake light is not working.
I've swapped the right working one with housing for the left one, and it doesn't work either. All fuses are ok. Can't be a brake light switch - 'cause 2 other brake lights work. So I said - what the heck - and put my old tail lights back on - same thing - the left brake light is out!!! Any ideas? Maybe, when I was pulling the plug out, one of the wires broke under insulation? If so, what color would this wire be? (I have green, brown, brown-white, etc. coming into the tail light plug). Anybody has wiring diagrams for tail lights from ETK or something?
Another peculiar thing - the wiring layout is not exactly the same as my old factory lights. So when I turn my lights at night, the two bottom lights to the outer edge of the cluster are off. I probably can fix it by soldering some contacts on - but don't know if that'll cause a fire hazard
