    Same problem, went to an auto salvage yard and pick up new plastic bulb holders and put them in with a fresh bulb, that seemed to do the trick, make sure you clean off the metal plates where the plastic bulb holder fits into the tail light assembly.

Check the brake light switch on the pedal first, if thats ok, check the tail lights again, where the bulb holders twist into the panel on the circut board connectors normally deterioate. cheers mike.

Brake lights don't work, Bulbs, brake switch and fuses were checked but brake lights still don't work


Check the brake light switch, it's under the dash near the top and on the back side of the brake pedal, press brake pedal down and see if that button pops out, if it doesn't tap on it, it should pop, if it does pop out and you still don't have lights, the switch is bad.

Brake lights don't work


im picking you have an E36? common problem is one of two things.
1- the bulb holders on the tail lights are faulty, the connecters on the board of the tail light are faulty, easy to remove & check.

2- the brake light switch at the base of the foot pedal is faulty.
