    Hi Dobs
    take a look at the lights with someone in the driving seat,i think you will find one of the brake lights is illuminated higher than the other.when a brake bulb fail's the ecu uses one of the four side light bulbs,one of your stop light bulbs will have blown

    Just looked at the lights in the dark.With foot brake on the right stop light is bigger than the left. With the side lights on,the l/h side light is bigger than the right.Fault was "check right brake light"

    blown bulb then , you have 2 side lights each side , the top smaller 1 is also the brake light .
    so if the right stop lamp is bigger then it is using the next bulb down .
