My Ride: 2000 323i bmw
hi jdstrickland, just wanted to thank you,ive trouble shot a similar problem on my car too. Its a 323i 2000. The right rear tail light was always on, on the dash that is. As though a lamp appeared to burnt out, but i always checked the lamps and they were all ok. They all worked fine. so after reading your post, i started looking a little closer. I looked at the brown ground wire after taking the light assy off, and checked the resistances of the light assy connections and found that the ground connection pin was way too high. So what i did was, i gently removed the plastic melted fasteners on the light assy connection and found the corrosion on ground pin. I cleaned the corroded connection plus all the others as well. I put the light assy back together and reconnected it to the harness. Well, that fixed the bothersome issue of the indicator lights burnt out on the instrument panel, so thanks again.
