    First thing to do is try changing the bulbs as they go high resistance when they get older and it's enough to trigger the bulb warning, even if they're still working, they may not for long.

    However, the problem I had with my estate doing this, was that the connections in the rear clusters had corroded just at the points the bulbs touched and had worn away. I fixed this "temporarily" months and months ago, but adding a small strip of metal inside the connector that touched the bulb further round and made a good connection with the holder where it wasn't corroded. You can buy replacement inners for the clusters without having to buy the whole light unit though which is what I will do eventually.

    Usually things like that are cheaper from the dealers...
