    Alright so my brake light switch went bad on the car and I have replaced it.

    Guys, I've been pounding the net and my head for the past several days researching an issue on a 2002 325i 5 speed that would not start. I went through all the "key" issues, clutch position switch and came up empty handed. As a last resort I started testing every single fuse in the car. I came...
