    F22 (228i) Complete Tail Light failure

    This morning I got a tail light bulb failure after a hard acceleration. All four bulbs are out. However I doubt they are actually burnt out as this happened simultaneously. Is this a known/common issue? Possible harness problem? I checked and the bulbs are actually not working.

    I'd disconnect the battey's negative/ground/earth cable for a minute or 2. Then, reconnect.

    Isn't there a reset procedure for the battery once you do that? When I get home I'm going to inspect the harness at the tail light
