  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    Not sure what's going on here. The brake lights (third light and both lower lights) are staying on from the first time I use them until I lock the car.

    It's been raining a lot here, so from reading other posts I probably should check the Body Control Module....but I don't know where it is....how do you get to it?

    What else should I do?

    I'd be suspect of the brake light switch sticking before the Body Control Module.

    I'd also guess that being a Clubman it is still under warranty meaning a trip to the dealer would be in order to let them take a look.

    Welcome to M/A too!

    Thanks for the reply and wamr welcome Nathan. Unfortunately, it's out of warranty - I have 60,000 miles on it. I'll check the brake switch - that makes sense.

    They stay on from the time I insert the key to when I take the key out.

    60,000 miles but when was it put in service? I would still go to the dealer and see if they can help you with repairing for free as a policy adjustment. They have the latitude to do that. Be extra nice:donut1:

    Brake Light Problem

    It's probably a stuck brake light switch. I suffered from this about 3 months ago and just today it re-occurred. The local dealer is gonna be getting a call first thing tomorrow...
