Electrical problem
1998 BMW 740 V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 163000 miles

I just replace the brake light housing on both side of my car. All the light are now working, expect the driver side brake light. I'm think is the wiring and an easy fix, but I'm not sure. What are some things I can without paying BMW $400.00 or $500.00 to replace a wire.

Check for power while the brake pedal is depressed, and swapping bulbs, try this first.

Thank you for your reply. I have changed the bulb and there is power to all other lights, only thing not working is the left brake light. You have any other suggestion?

I have one suggestion, take a light bulb socket from the right side and put it in the left side and see if it works I've had a lot of these light sockets malfunction
