guyz, the lights on my 92' 325i started going out one after another... first the side marker in the rear went out... then a week later it was the license plate.. and now the brake lights jus went out.. ghead
its jus a pain in the rear... plus the warnings inside annoy me...

is there something that i m missing? something that is causing them to go out that i should be fixing b4 another one goes out??

You could try checking your battery voltage with the engine running, Rev it alittle and if it's much higher than 14.4V then maybe your alternator's voltage regulator is going out, but other electronics would go bezerk as well instead of just poping a few bulbs.

I say it's just coincidence.
There was a time when i was poping taillights one after another for about 3 times.... Was kinda strange, but that was 3 months ago.

Had the same problem on a Merc and the battery ended up being the problem. New battery, problem solved.
