Tail Light help!! Please!!!!!

OK so my tail light bulb suddenly went out. I tried changing the bulb and nothing happens. So I figured I had a bad light bulb holder or whatever you call it. So I bought a new one. And That bulb is still out. I think it maybe the little metal thing that touches the bulb holder. Does anyone know how to test that or what else can be wrong????

There was a TSB on these - bulb holder contacts bad. In my case I had constant 'ghost' errors that bulb was out even though it wasn't

Dealer replaced with the new version bulb holder both sides for free under TSB & I never had the problem again.

It is possible you got New Old Stock Bulb holder when you bought - which would end up being same as one you replaced...


BTW, the 'Search' feature is your friend

I have a similar problem

Hi Guys,

I recently got an e93 which I love annoying though ive only had it 1 month and in that time ive had to replace -

one of the roof sensors
and an ignition coil.

Now both the front halo has gone and the rear tail light.

I replaced the halo and that's fine 22 for a bulb later.

but the light which isn't working seems to be LED strips and when I took the light apart I cant see a bulb for it.

any one know a fix for this
