1999 323is: The brake light circuit warning message..might cost

Resolved Question:

I have a 1999 323is. The brake light circuit warning message on the dash displays (although this has happened in the past when the brake lights DID work) and the brake lights are not working. What might be the problem and how much do you think it might cost to repair it?

The connectors on the rear clusters are very common problem on this vehicle, the female earth pin burns out in the connector. Remove the rear bulb holders and disconnect. Check the pins on the bulb holder and connector.
