First check the fuses. Especially if all the lights in back are out at once. Then check the bulbs. Sometimes you have to replace bulbs that still look good, but just don't make good enough contact anymore.... A friend of mine had to replace all the bulbs to get any of them to work again. I have no explanation as to why.... Good Luck.... Sometimes on these older cars, just pulling the fuse and replacing it a time or two - cleans it off and gets it to work again.... Much like dirty battery cables can stop the flow of electricity, so can dirty connectors on a fuse, or bulb.

Brake lights dont work. even after changing the bulbs. the light on the panel works fine. but the rear brake lights connected to the rear end do not.


Sounds like brake light switch is bad. It's mounted just above your brake pedal under dash. It's a pretty simple fix, unplug couple of wires and unclip switch, reverse to install.

BRAKE WARNING LIGHT


I dunno if this will work on your BMW, but on my BMW Z3 and M3, it was....

Turn the ignition key to position 2, but do NOT start the car. Wait for about 45 seconds and the brake warning message will be reset.

If it doesn't reset, then the brake sensor was damage. You will need to replace the brake sensor. It sounds like you replace the brake right after you saw the warning, so the brake sensor should be okay.

No rear brake light / turn signals on 2001 Chevy Cavalier


The problem is the turn signal/headlight/hazard switch assembly on the steering column which the brake light wiring runs through. The part is easy to change and cost about $50 at most parts stores
