Subject: 325 Brake Light
Problem: Brake warning light on dash staying on.
I too experienced a similar problem recently with my 325e ('87). The
fluid level was correct. The switch was operating okay. The brake fuses
Brian from Michael McMichael Motors in Adelaide South Australia provided
the following advise which solved the problem.
[ Help ]
- Check that fuse #16 is okay. If you refer to your owners manual,
#16 is for a seat heater (?) don't know the link between this and the
brake light, but, failing this..
- Remove the ashtray from the centre consul and inspect the lighter
and light connections for a foreign metal body, eg pin, hair clip etc.
Again, I don't understand the link but apparently, a pin or similar may
short out the connections and cause the brake light to appear.
My problem was a faulty fuse #16.
