If you don't have power on that circuit at the lamp socket, the problem could be in the turn signal.

Test the circuit board for power where the socket goes in. If there is power there you might have a bad socket. BMW's are good for that. The socket contacts corrode away and make no contact to the circuit board. I am guessing the new lights came with new sockets right. Look at the connector at the circuit board for corrosion and clan the contacts there too.

try taking a wire brush to all the ground wire ports on your vehicule specialy the ones in the rear of the vehicule sometimes rusty ground wires make very bad connections. if so when you are done put some grease on them to avoid future rust. hope this coul help you.

SOURCE: Brake light dont work
check the fuse for the brake lights. The brake lights and siganl lights use the same bulb filament. The parking and running lights use a dimmer filament in the bulb. There are 2 filaments.
Your brake lights work through the multifunction switch which operates the signal lights. If the signal lights work, you may have a bad brake lamp switch which is on your brake pedal arm.
Let us know what you find.

The problem is that the tail lights, light bulbs get too hot and melt the plastic where the bulb socket goes into the lens assembly. On the lens assembly you will see one to three metal tabs where the socket fits into. Lift up the tab a little bit with a screw driver and place a small amount of either metal or plastic underneath the tab so it will get a good connection. It will fix the problem.
