Alright, i need a little help, i got into my car after work tonight and when i turned on the car the check control light came on and it says brake light circut and then SEE OWNERS MANUAL. but the only problem is, is that i dont have a manual for the car yet. Anyonw know what this may be?? Thanks
I have read on some forum somewhere this might be due to contact problems,
try cleaning the brake light contact. Also I have read about burning on the contact.. apparently It's documented... sorry I cant remember the link to the exact page. (Apparently the OBC measures resistance of the circuit, and dirty can lead to a warning that a brake light has failed).
Hey there, just saw your question on the Brake Light thingy.. This has happened to me and I have after talking to the BMW $tealers that there is a swtich that wears out of a period that needs replacing, around $70.00NZD this is the brake pedal switch which I was told was under the dash towards the passengers side. WHat happens is the switch sometimes makes and breaks contact and the check control see's that you have not touched the brake pedal and therefore knows something is wrong.. This is very common on 95-98 E36, my 99 E46 has just started doing this... Grrrr.
