BMW F32 Tail light malfunction Fix

Ever have your BMW tail lights start flashing very fast, an error pop up and then find out your break lights and signal are no longer working?
Well it's a known issue with quite a few BMWs.

The harness and adapter plug to the tail light melts. The cost of repair is about $360.00...
Or about $50 if you're willing to do just a little bit of fairly easy work.

Thought I'd post a video of it, Cheers.

Dont have the same issue but I get an error only with emergency braking. "Secondary tail light malfunction." Assuming a second set of brake lights are supposed to light up with excessive force to the brakes.

Can't be bothered to fix but if this is all it takes I may consider. Good vid. Thanks
