Question about 1999 BMW 323 Series
Lights go off and on sporadically but mainly stay on. I could drive at night if I had to but it is very annoying. Seems to not be unrelated to bumps or vibration.
Check your fuses and I would suggest you change the fuses related to the lighting system.

check coolant level, might be a leak. most bmws have a water pump that uses a plastic impeller/propeller (dont know the technical name), but it breaks off the water pump shaft, and no coolant is circulated through the engine and radiator

This is your rear parking/backup/taillight warning burned out bulb indicator.One or more of your rear lights is burned out.A simple bulb inspection and replace will take care of the trick.Hope I could help...

SOURCE: i WANT TO KNOW HOW
Are you talking the expansion tank? If so - Drain coolant first by going underneath the car and take off the protective shield and unscrewing the blue plastic screw (make sure the car is NOT hot!), under the reservoir you'll see an electronic sensor - carefully twist is a 1/4 turn counterclockwise and gently pull downward to remove this sensor don't force it, you don't want to pay $150 to replace it. Disconnect the hoses on the top and bottom of expansion tank by pulling up the metal tabs upwards then pulling the hose away from the tank. I believe there are two or three screws which hold the expansion tank bracket in place, unscrew these and pull the bottom of the tank away from the radiator then lift upwards on the bracket (the bracket and expansion tank should then come out). Get the old expansion tank off the bracket and replace. You want to take off the bracket because getting a new tank on the bracket is a B*TCH!
Reconnect in reverse order.
Make sure to bleed the cooling system properly to remove air pockets (please use BMW coolant and distilled H20 in 50/50 mix - it's not the same as your Prestone or other mass produced coolants). Last replace the expansion tank cap because that might have created the expansion tank cracking.
Good luck and hope this helps
