    E38 Rear Indicator Won't Turn Off

    Thanks Jochim, yeah its weird that one bulb should stay on. My local mechanic who did the WOF check unhooked the bulb and meter checked the power and it was a constant just to that bulb - all the other bulbs - reverse lights, indicators etc worked as normal. I got this suggestion on the bimmerforum: "Try to disconnect the battery for 15 to 20 minutes. While it is disconnected push the flashers a couple times to make sure all the spare charges are expended from the car and then hook the battery back up. Things should be ok afterwards for you then." Im not sure what that would do but i'll try it when i get home tomorrow. I'll probably take the car to a local BMW / Euro specialiat on Monday / Tuesday and ask about a new LCM.
  4. Hi guys ... i just returned from Australia to find my '97 728i having a couple of issues. The worst is my Right Hand Rear Indicator Light stays on.. even with the car off. I have to disconnect a battery terminal to make it go out. The worst thing is i have a month to get it registered and i took it for a warrant todayand after mucking around with a wire harness for a bit they ran outta time to sort it.. so it failed its warrant. Does anyone have any idea what it could be ... they seem to think its a wire harness and want a crack at it on Monday ... but im not so sure ... could be a bunch of things really but i wanna try all avenues so any info would be great .. Cheers!

    Need New Key for 97 728i

    So my house was burgled while i was outta town and the thieves tried to take my car as they found the key in a cupboard in the house. When they couldn't work out the alarm system they left with the key and clicker and various household appliances. Well now i have no key and no alarm clicker. I think i can take the alarm out - hopefully its not forever immobilized :\ Is there anywhere i can get a new key programmed in Welli? How much etc? thanks for any help guys - my car is destitute at the moment .... oh and i used the search function but nothing came up. cheers!
