    i know that if one of the rear bulbs fail, it lights up another instead as a safety thing, and puts the light on the dash, might be worth looking at them

    Only if the upper tail & brake light fails.

    None of the other bulbs in the rear cluster have substitute bulbs that come on in its place.

    Just been through this. It might be a loose filament in the bulb, mine was. Sometimes went off if i went over a bump then one day the fault light stayed on. See which one is out when you next get the fault and just replace it, did mine yesterday.
