I have a 2008 BMW 328i, After some ignition work it started behaving oddly. Then the brake warning lights came on.

I have a 2008 BMW 328i, it has 94k miles on it, and I just had the spark plugs/coils replaced, oil changed, filter cap and seal replaced. After the repair I started to have a running issue I have never had before, it would jerk like the engine was spitting out a loogie. Very strange. And then yesterday my emergency brake light on the display stayed on while driving (amber, not red) as well as the lift symbol appeared. I checked forums and it seemed when these two indicators appear in tandem it is a brake pads/brake fluid being low issue. So I went out and looked at the brake pad front pads are
Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
If you are not getting a grinding noise, it’s probably OK to drive the car for a little while. As soon as you hear grinding however, You have lost your brake lining and the car will not stop well. The light usually comes on when there is about 1/8 inch of lining left which gives you some time. Replacing brake rotors is optional if they are not damaged, but if you change them, your new pads will last longer and run quieter than they will if you don’t. Your car is at an age where flushing the brake fluid would be a good idea to help prevent future hydraulic problems. I don’t have a diagnosis for a car that acts like it’s "spitting out a loogie" But go ahead and make an appointment to get the brakes serviced and the technician who comes to your home can check out your running problem and tell you what it needs.

This is a sign of something wrong with your vehicle`s braking system. It doesn`t necessarily mean you should panic, though – unless the light stays on after you come to a complete stop and switch off the engine. In this case, it could indicate serious damage or malfunctioning components that need immediate attention.

EPC light on 2004 Jetta. Code said brake switch faulty, but brakes lights worked. Replaced brake switch, now no brake lights.
ANSWER : Hi there. The first thing that pops in my mind beyond of what you have listed is perhaps the electrical harness attached to the brake switch. Perhaps the harness itself is damaged or you have an exposed wire, loose ground wire somewhere. You might want to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a brake lights not working inspection to help you diagnose this issue.

Brake lights are not working. replaced brake light swtch still no brake lights. the third brake light the connection was melted at
ANSWER : The first thing to do is to repair third brake light and replace the brake light fuse and then see if the third brake lights work and the lower lights start working? If only the 3rd brake light starts working then you may need a further checks on the turn signal flasher or switch could be bad.

Okay so when I turn my lights on at night my brake lights do not work, when I don’t have my lights on they work fine.
ANSWER : Hi there. Based on your inquiry, it’s highly probable that you have a damaged light switch or some electrical fault inside the turn signal relay. However, it’s also possible that the brake switch above the brake pedal could also be the source of your problem. Due to the fact that multiple electrical components might be causing this issue, it’s a smart idea to first have a professional mobile mechanic complete a brake lights are not working inspection, so they can determine what’s causing all of these issues and recommend the right repairs.

All dashboard lights and tail lights do not work after driving through a lot of snow. Headlights work. And brake lights work.
ANSWER : Hello. We’ll be happy to help you. There are a few things that I recommend checking to discover why your lighting system is malfunctioning. The headlight dimmer switch should be checked. Along with the wiring harness above the right front tire behind the fender well cover. Also
the main fuse under the hood should be inspected because other people with your particular vehicle have had similar lighting issues if that fuse goes bad. It will be a great idea to check the rest of the fuses in that area too while checking the main fuse. Once the fuses are checked inside of the main fuse box then I would check the fuses inside of their interior fuse box. The interior fuse box should be located on the driver side of the dashboard near where your legs would be.

Honda Civic 2008. AC stopped working suddenly and engine check light came ON for a day.Next day AC worked and no engine light.
ANSWER : Hi there. In both cases, when an AC system is not working and a warning light is coming on the dashboard, typically a professional mechanic will complete the same initial inspection, which is to download the stored error codes that triggered the warning light initially. This tends to give them an idea as to what is causing the problems. This could be something as simple as an electrical relay that is faulty or loose or an indication of a computer related "glitch". Either way, the best way to move forward is to have a professional mobile mechanic complete a check engine light inspection.

signals, daytime running lights are not working, park brake light on dash is on steady and chime is dinging steady 4×4 wont engage
ANSWER : This is likely a brake light switch problem. I would suggest testing the brake light switch which should be located down by the brake pedal. This may also be a computer problem as well as indicated by the other lights on in the dash. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to possibly replace the brake light switch and diagnose with a scanning tool which will download useful data from the truck’s computer indicating what specifically the problem may be.

When I put my foot on the brake my back left brake light goes off, when I take it off the brake the brake light comes on
ANSWER : I would suggest trying to disconnect and reconnect the wiring to the rear lights. I have seen these older Toyota vehicles rear lighting short out on the lights themselves due to the way the light circuit was made on the lamp housing. Look at the housing circuit on the light to see if one is touching another, and that could tell you why it is malfunctioning. There could also be a problem with the brake light switch. If you are not comfortable dealing with wires, I recommend getting in touch with a certified mechanic who can look at your brake light issue for you to see what’s going on.
