I have a question regarding my 2003 325XI. The left directional light
warning light on the dashboard keeps coming on, then going off. The front
and side flasher flash rapidly. Seemed like an easy fix. Must be the back
bulb. However, a few weeks later, the warning light for the rear bulb came
on again and the front and side bulbs flashed fast again. I saw that the
bulb fit in loosely. So, I pulled up on the thin metal tab under the bulb.
This seemed to work for another few weeks or so.
Tonight, I lifted the tab, and stretched out the spring so that it would
apply a little more force under the metal tab when the bulb is reinserted.
No luck. The flasher warning light is still on and the front and side
directions are flashing rapidly.
Is this an issue with the bulb housing, or a deeper electronic issue? I can
call the BMW dealership, but thought I'd check with you folks first. Am I
looking in the wrong place?
Has anyone been through this? Any other suggestions?
