Question about 2001 BMW 5 Series
Left or right break light keeps going off but the bulb is ok
Check the Earth / return wires for these lamps. Often just screwed to a piece of chassis. If there is corrosion on the connector, then you will get an intermittent fault.
Unusual that both lights are doing this - usually just the one is affected.
Hope this enables the problem to be solved; If it does , please take a moment to rate as Fixya. Thanks.
