Hi I have a bmw 740 il (1995). The brake lights don't work. Either side but the center one does. The fuse (f44) seams to be ok and I replaced the bulbs. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. I do have a service manual. Thank you,Denis
Model: 740 il

I have reviewed the factory wiring diagram.
the brake lights on this car are directly controlled by the lamp module, each light and the center light have seperate feeds.
so, unless you have some sort of bizarre wiring or connection problem, the lamp module is the likely fault here.
I hope that is helpful, please let me know if you have further questions, or if I can clarify anything for you.
Best wishes to you and best of luck with your vehicle.
