I have a BMW 325i with a non-working brake light. I changed the bulbs and still didn't work. It was a burnt fuse. Changed the fuse and burnt again. Just recently been hearing a tick from car stereo when ignition a on without starting the engine. Could this be a bad/ lose wire linked to the stereo wires? Please assist...thanks!

No you cannot just connect the 3rd brake light to the left/right brake light, chances are they also function independently as turn signals. The type of trailer wiring harness you speak of is usually installed by unplugging the wiring harness and plugging that connector inline. The two sides of that harness should plug back together.
are the dash lights still working,if so,first check the bulbs,you can get a test light at autozone for a couple bucks,with the bulb out,test light grounded,have someone step on the brake pedal,touch the test lite probe to one of the contacts inside bulb socket,if it dont work your brake lite switch is out,its located under the dash,maybe on brake pedal lever
ed7882 I had the same exact problem and thought it was a fuse or the wiring. Come to find out it was just a blown bulb. They are inline together with the cruise so if one blows it all goes. So change out the lights and that should fix it for you.
These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
