    Advise needed with tail lights


    After receiving my my E36 from valet 2 days back I noticed the rear sensors are on even while driving (they usually only turn on if the car is in reverse ONLY), I put the car in neutral and noticed the reverse lights are on no matter the gear the car is in (its manual).

    Seeking for advise on what could have went wrong or what needs to be done to get it resolved :(

    Thanks! :?

      Looks like something related to the gear lever switcher

        Check reverse gear switch located in the gear housing, possibly the fuse as well.
