    Just check the rear side light isn't doubling up for the brake light, you do have to look carefully.

    it may be one of the rear bilbs
    the rear bulbs are all 21 watts the car just lowers the voltage to the bulb to make it a 5 watt,,
    this is so that if a brake or tail light blows the other bulb can take over and do the job of the other

    time to get a littel tester out and have a look and the rear bulbs

    Which bulb is it saying that's faulty? Take it out and have a look at the solder contact on the bottom of the bulb. Sometimes they can start to 'perish' and whilst the bulb still works, it can cause the bulb failure to be triggered. Just change the bulb that's being indicated and see if it sorts it out.
