Glow light bulb could be burned out.but glow plugs is control by ECM AND RELAY.do your vechicle start but you dont see glow plug light on to let you know glow plugs are energized heating up.also check glow plug fuse, look in owner manual in glovecompartment it will show all fuses and relays locations.

On your brakelight concern, a few basic ideas:

changing the module will not remedy the problem unless it is programmed. most likely if the control module had failed the fault stored in the airbag module should be a coding fault. Take the vehicle to your local bmw dealership, pay them to diagnose it and see if it just needs to be programmed. In most areas bmw dealership are opened on saturday usually fairly late

pretty simple actually. the inlet manefold is unbolted and the turbo hose disconnected and removed.one the inlet manifold is out of the way the 6 glow plugs can be easliy identifed under the injectors an are very easy to acses and remove.keep in mind you will need new gaskets for the refitting of the manifold or a tube of instend gasket works fine

Before you remove them, if your car is starting ok and idling smoothly on all cylinders they will be ok. If you have a misfire for 15 or so seconds, one of your heaters might be duff. If the car is difficult to start and is very rough to begin with, you have two out. (This is assuming your injectors are in good condition because they can give trouble on cold starts also.) The easiest way to find a bad heater is to remove the strap or cable that connects them all and using a multi meter check each one. The one that gives no reading is your problem. If you get your replacement from a spares shop you will pay a fraction of the manufacturers price. (Replace all four if you can afford it. It will save you the bother of having to to the job again in a couple of months and it will give you some spares for an emergency.)
