dash and brake lights wont go off!

i just noticed today that my dash wont go off (the ones displaying my open doors and abs etc) and that my brake lights wont go off. also my keyless entry has ceased to work as of today. ive tried driving for a while, pumping my brakes, and closing all my doors again. if anybody could help it would be great. id love to fix the problem before my car dies. thank you.

Hey count, I hope you removed the hot lead off the battery. I looked in my electric wire manual and it doesn't have keyless system in it. There must be a relay thats hung up. The best bet is BMW,meanwhile if you have a charger handy,use it

Have the Battery AND Alternator checked dude... If all is fine then suspect the issues that GGH mentions, and also try the "old nugget" of disconnecting the battery for an hour or so to try to reset the ECU... If this fails then its a case of Laptop, OBD cable and reset the codes... Then we can work with new fault codes to kill the problem...
