3353Brake light warning light?
- Mar 1, 2005I keep getting a brake light warning light when I start my '86 528e
US model. Then when I step on the brake it goes out. I checked the
grounds, and cleaned the front and rear ground. I also made sure
that the ground plate on the tail lights were both properly
grounded. One of the brake light sockets is developing some
electrical scaling on the contact on the ground side, but after
cleaning, and replacing the bulbs, it did not change the warning
light. When the car is driven it makes a "pop" in the speakers like
it has a bad ground and you hit a bump. Then sometimes the warning
light comes on, and will not turn off when you hit the brake, until
you turn the car off and back on again. It may be a bad brake light
switch, but I want to get the replacement switch before tearing it
apart. Any ideas or similar problems?
