Question about 2001 BMW 325
Hello rbflyin. This is a fairly common problem in BMW's after they have been in service for a few years. The problem has to do with the flasher relay getting a wee bit weak due to the fact that it relies upon a spring which looses a bit of it's strength over time.
You can replace the flasher relay or if you enjoy getting into a rather fun hands on repair go to this link to read an excellently prepared step by step tutorial on this issue. Joe

Hello! The Direction Indicator/Low Beam Switch (on steering column) is defective...It is a dealer item only...Before spending any money, the switch can be tested...Do you have a multimeter and a wee bit of experience using it? If so I'll send a test procedure...Guru....saailer

I don't think you should go that far, If you provide an email address I can send you the diagrams you request, but, I think your problem is the Turn Signal Switch or the Cluster Control Module (CCM).
To check it out, look for the Yellow w/Red stripe wire going from the multifunction switch to the inst. panel this is the turn signal/low beam indicator that shows on the cluster All you need is a test light to check it out.
If when the turn signal switch is activated and you do not get any voltage to it, the turn signal switch is defective, if you do get voltage, the Cluster Control Module is defective. If you still need the diagrams, let me know.
A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

First thing to check is the instrument cluster fuse located underneath the driver side steering wheel. Remove the fuse box cover lid and you will find a diagram that show what each fuse controls. Replace the instrument cluster fuse with the same number fuse. Next, check your flasher unit for continuity with a multimeter. If your flasher unit relay is good then replace the light bulbs inside the instrument cluster.
