Fault code 136 (cc-id 136)

I received fault code 136 along with about 3 others. I was able to clear the other codes, but 136 remains... I searched and could not come up with any posts with fault code 136. Has anyone received this fault or knows what the fault it for?

Maybe i didn't clear the codes with the BT scanner correctly? I plugged in the cable to the car then the pc then ran the program. I choose clear all fault codes. The engine was not on, but the ignition was turned on...

Thanks in advance!

Anyone have a random bulb out besides the heads and tails?

I just received this code, the dealer replaced the bulb socket. This cleared the code cc-id 136 but the original problem still exists. The left rear taillight is intermittently on and off. It is clearly an electrical issue. I will post about it when the issue is resolved.

I'm getting the same issue. CC ID 136 but all lights appear to work properly.. head lights, rear lights, blinkers, reverse lights, fog lights, license plate lights, etc.

This car is starting to piss the hell out of me with all the faulty warning signals. This is the 2nd one this week.

Faulty Light Code

I just received the CC-ID 136 today. Happened in the morning going to work and was able to duplicate the error message. When I went to lunch and came back the error was gone. Came home tonight and looked up here what the error code meant. Was able to duplicate the error code again. When I went out a second time to verify the error code it was gone again!

What gives? Is this an intermitted error that will only occur when I'm not in the service shop? Hopefully the BMW service will be able to pull the past codes up in the computer and confirm what I have been seeing. Maybe the left rear brake light has some moisture in the socket that causes it to break connection with the computer?

Going to the shop tomorrow for them to check it out. That and I need to get the passenger seatbelt replaced; no longer catching by the extender arm. Just have the driver side replaced 3 weeks ago and the tech. did a number on my rear interior. The SA had to get his leather fix-it guy to repair the damage. Looks like new so no real complaint.

Will post back what the resolve is for the light.

I cannot help you with the fault code, but want to congratulate you on your RZ5 - I have a two-stroke Yamaha myself and wish it were an RZ5.

cc-id 136 Light Bulb Fault

After having spent considerable money in replacing bulbs and having confused the living day lights out of the so call BMW specialists, who insisted it is a bulb fault, and indeed I agreed, they gave up and asked me to book the car in for a complete diagnostics!!! Ha! Anyway to make money!!
Well I was able to cure the fault with the use of that good old WD40, I took all the bulbs out of the rear connectors and sprayed the connector assemply with WD40. Bingo the fault has gone. Hope it works for you lot too. Good luck.

The brake light codes are 134 (RHS) and 136 (LHS). Since for safety there are two bulbs per side, it is difficult to diagnose when one is out and not the other, particularly with the lens design. I had the same code (136) on for a couple of days until I finally decided to test the bulbs individually with 12V and yes, one was out. Curiously, when testing the faulty bulb with a ohmmeter, it showed OK, but when connected to a 12V battery, was no good.

Based on the previous posts, I did apply some TV tuner cleaner and lubricant (buy it at Radio Shack) just in case.

Hope this helps ...

Talking fix to cc-id 136

To fix CC-id 136 its a good idea to replace all four brake light bulbs. My lights were working ok. What happens is as the bulbs get old devlope intermitant breaks in the filament as you drive down the road..

See my how to fix video at gkdicke01 channel on youtube. The best thing on this channel is my 8yr old son and his Jiu jitsu tournament wins.

PS
You may not like what you see when you replace the bulbs.
The plastic bulb socket assemblies are melting from the heat of the 18w bulbs. BMW should have a recall regarding this. I guese a car has to cach fire or someone has to die be for any action is taken.
Now anyone running 100% meth in trunk might wana rethink what there doing.

I Love e90 post
The n54 low bost problem/ vacuum line fix at front of engine made my car run perfect.
The dealer would not adrdess my poor performanc issues untill they had a engin fault code.
Had they replaced the vacuum lines they would have charge 800 - 2000 dollars.
Hoses are not covered under extended warrenty.
My cost was 15 min of time and 5 dollers for tubing.

Also My car has 65.000miles with most current flash and is pulling 9.2 pounds of bost on 91oct
with no mods.
I wonder if the 335is has the same flash or has this much bost with 91 oct.
Proceed mode, Down pips and 50% Under Hood Meth injection are on the horizon.

Once again this post is the greatest.

Did you change out the actual socket that holds them in?

Really useful post. I had fault code 136 (rear brake light) but saw that the lights were working fine. Good to know that there are two bulbs per side...
