Take the bulb back out and clean inside the bulb holder, there may be some corrosion or other debris in there

Access to the tail light cluster is through panels in the rear corners of the vehicle in the trunk. Undo the fastners that hold the panel in place and remove the panel and you can remove the tail light cluster to replace the bulbs.

Central Locking not working


Hi Craig,
I'm running a E34 Tds Touring with a similar problem, my rear doors and tailgate have dropped of the central locking circuit.
I have been told it is the Central locking Module a large black box under the dash that is faulty, apparently a common problem.
Hope this points you in the right direction,
Please remember to rate my effort!
