Exclamation Brake lights don't work-intermittant problem

I get an error message at times when applying my brakes on my 525i-"see manual." This is an intermittant problem, most of the time the brakes lights work. I'm guessing it must be a sensor or relay but don't know where to look to replace it. I would appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks in advance.

What message exactly are you getting? I use to get a "Brake Light Circuit" message and it was my brake light switch. I believe that it would say "Brake Light Failure" for a burnt bulb.

Wouldn't you know when you want to check it, everythings working ok. It probably said "brake light circuit" as both bulbs are ok.

If it comes on from time to time it is probably your switch.
