Right hand side light failures

Postby Darren_mcneill » Thu, 11 Oct 2012 16:59:12 UTC

Just a query really. My e60 has had failures on the right brake light, right reverse light, right dipped beam.

Is this simply bulbs or a fuse? Just seems strange that it is just the right hand side?

I would say yes its the fuse they are located in the boot on the right hand side behind the carpet trim

Hi I had the same problem but on the rear passenger side, when I opened it up I found the metal connector on the wiring unit was charred (burnt like) not the fuse. I went to a local indy and he soldered the main wire directly and works well since 6 Months on. He did mention this is a common fault and had done a few of this in his time.
