I am a brand new bimmer, and this is my first thread here. So please allow me to say hello to every one here.
I have a 2001 325Ci. The tail light seems have problem because the it is displayed on control panel. I have completely no idea what is happening but trying to get rid of the problem. I don't even know if that is a "check engine light" although I would not think so.
Anyone has any idea what could be the culprit of the problem?
Thanks a lot.
Normally this indicates that there is bulb out, but if the bulbs are all good, you will need to check all the contact points in the bulb sockets, make sure they are clean of any corrosion & that the contact points are solid & not burnt.........also make sure the right bulbs are being used. Also double check & make sure the ground for the tail light is tightly secured.....
I had a similar problem in my 2001 330xi, but it wasn't the bulb or the contacts, it turned out to be a hairline crack in the circuit board where the bulbs plug in (rear drivers side). It was pretty simple to fix, just had to drill some small holes on either side of the crack and soldered in a jumper wire. In this case the directional would flash at twice the normal speed and the indicator would come on, but it didn't always happen. I hate intermittent problems, but it was just the luck of the draw, sometimes it was making the connection and other times it wasnt. Hope you corrected your problem.
