1991 BMW 525i Q&A
1991 BMW 525i Question: ar's dash lights and tail lights do not work. All fuse hood rear seat OK.
Two days ago...dash lights and one tail light(left) were fine...Dash message told me tail light out...The right on was. Removed the light shocket on the right side...replaced 10w sliver base bulb rated for BMW replacement for tail light. As I was replacing the bulb socket back into body port all went black...Now I have NO tail lights and NO dash lights. I assume that a short must have been created as I was placing the right bulb socket back into the body cavity that holds the buld and socket. I also assume that the metal contact points at the top of the right bulb socket must have shorted some way??? All I know is I have no tail or dash lights. All fuses show OK?? Does any one have a resolve for my problem??? I get no warning message on the panel indicator. Again 1991 BMW 525i automatic Any one can hit me direct at email@example.com or post back on blog board... ANY HELP MUCH APPRECIATED!!!!!! - gsum
Check owners manual for ALL locations of fuses , and check the trunk wiring harness for broken wires - ziptie12
