Question about BMW 325

1 Answer

BMW 325i 2003 - The indicator (picture of a car) inside the dash says that something is wrong with the rear left turn signal or brake lights. However I've pulled the cover off in the trunk and switched the bulbs with working bulbs and it doesn't make a difference. The bulbs are not burnt out since they actually glow faintly. The turn signals also go very fast on the left side.

Usually replacing the flasher will fix this. Normally you can buy this at Autozone, but being a Beemer you might call around before you waste your gas.

Brake/Signal Lights Problem.

Sounds like a ground problem to me. Bulbs are not getting there ground to complete the circuit so they backfed through the other bulbs.

I have a 2003 325I and the indicator on the dash is on. It is a car icon that shows one of the right rear light is out. I checked all the bulbs and they are on and the brake light functions? Any...

I have had this problem. I do not believe there is a permanent fix but if the light annoys you, like it has me in the past, I have unattached my battery for about 5 min and then reattach. The light will go off. It maybe off for a day, a week, or who knows. I just assume it's a flaw that I just have to deal with.

CHECK BRAKE LIGHT comes on the dash board, I ahve chaged the light several tiems, it works for a while then, you guest it the dash board signal appear again?

It's trying tell you there is something wrong with your brakes. Fix the brake problem and the light will stop coming on. Check your brake fluid level and check you brake pads for wear.

Left turn indicator comes on dimly with application of brakes. No bulbs out.

Lots of possibilities, but the most common is a bad ground of the entire light assembly on the left rear.
That makes the left rear brake filament ground back up through the left rear turn signal ground, through the left rear signal filament, and all the way back up to the dash left indicator light, then finally to chassis ground. Just check if the left brake and left signal are both dim and come on together.

The left break light sensor comes on and off on the car indicator and will cause the three pack of lights to go out also this will happen with the right side of my 2003 bmw 325i with 45K

water in the rear brake light assemblies. common problem. remove the brake lite assembly------very very easy thing to do. there are three nuts holding it in from inside the trunk. once they're off the whole assembly just pops out. then it can be cleaned. usually the rubber gasket around the assembly leaks water into the lights and messes up the contacts where the bulbs screw into the circuit board.

BMW 325i right turn indicator

Turn indicators blink a lot faster when a bulb is blown or a wire is diconnected. Check front and rear signal lights to make sure they work after you turn on right turn indicator.
