Remove the the bulb and check the holder for corrosion and take a small screw driver and bend the leads closer together. Also check the leads on the outside part, that they are not flattened out, again bend them up.. And check the plug that goes to the housing for corrosion and if neessary bend the clips a little closer together.

SOURCE: tail lights work but brake

Hi!
Maybe you have a problem with a brake switch or the bulbs. because the bulb has two heads in side one for the brakes and one for the tail lights. take the bulb out ad see if the both heads are ok and not broken, They are just tow springs. If they look ok,Then check the brake switch thats usually under brake pedal. Good luck

Any Thumbs Up would be appreciated.

BMW 650 Tail Light Problem


If you find that your BMW 650 CS/GS/Dakar tail light doesn’t work at all or flickers when riding, chances are the metal power terminals inside the bulb socket are no longer making a good connection with the metal bumps on the tail light bulb. This is a very common problem with the BMW 650 of all makes, models, and years. Fortunately, there is a very easy fix.
Due to excessive vibration, temperature changes, and replacing light bulbs, the two metal power terminal tabs inside the tail light socket deform and get pushed too far back inside the tail light chassis. This prevents the tail light bulb from making good contact with the power terminals and the smallest vibrations can cause the electric connection to break temporarily or indefinitely.

To fix the problem, all you need to do is pry the two metal power tabs forward just a little so that they make a better connection with the metal bumps on the tail light bulb. If you look at the back of the bike, the red tail light casing on the 650 CS/GS/Dakar is held in place with two screws. If you remove these screws the red tail light casing comes off and you have access to the light bulb inside. At this point, turn the ignition on, but you don’t need to start the bike. Remove the light bulb by pushing in and twisting clockwise about 1/8 turn. If the bulb flickered while removing it, then the bent power terminals are most likely the cause.
Looking at the tail light bulb you should see two metal bumps. These bumps need to make a good connection with the two metal power terminals inside the tail light casing. Turn the ignition off and find a small tool that you can use to pry the power terminals forward just a bit. Make sure the bike is off and you don’t want the power terminals tabs inside the tail light casing to touch.
After you have made the adjustment, turn the ignition back to “on” and re-insert the taillight bulb. If the bulb is lit, then you are done. If it still flickers a bit and doesn’t stay lit, then you will need to continue prying the tabs forward until a good connection is made.

BMW rear left hand side tail light and flasher not working also drivers window not working


The electric window could either be the fuse,switch, or window regulator motor at fault..Sometimes the window motor electric plug can vibrate loose or become loose from door slamming..Also the switch can become loose as well or contamination if you are lucky..You will have to remove door panel to inspect these components..and fuse panel..The light could be a faulty bulb..Check and replace bulb..before involving the signal indicator switch lever...If bulb is at fault go ahead and change bulbs at both rear sides..Do not try to repair signal switch because of air bag..If you can hold down on the turn signal switch and it works the switch is at fault...

How do I remove the cover on a 2002 325i BMW tail light wiring? thanks


Do you need to change a bulb or are you changing to custom lamps. If it is bulb replacement open trunk/boot (depending where you live ) the access for the tail lamps is at the rear corners of the trunk, If you are changing lamp lenses or assembly remove the screws( same location ) at lamp corners

My brake lights on a BMW 318ti are on all the time when the running lights are turned on at night. What might be the problem?


Check carefully the brightness of the stop/tail lamp bulbs when in operation.


1) Perhaps someone has managed to insert the stop/tail bulbs into the lamp holder 180 degrees out of rotation,
or
2) If the wiring has been interfered with, the stop and rear parklamp circuit connections are crossed over.

Either of the above errors will have the effect of :-
when running lights on, hi wattage (stop) lamp on;
when brake stopswitch operated, low wattage (running) lamp on.
