    i once bought some cheap side light bulbs from ebay and they caused the Parking light warning to come on. i then bought some better quality ones and the warning dissapeared.
    if your warning light dissapeares when you hit bumps maybe try clean all contacts on bulbs and connectors

    ive checked all the connectors well rear ones anyway and they are clean free from dust or erosion??? cheap bulbs eh? now theres a thought although that would make it stay on all the time wouldnt it?

    The bulb monitoring circuit checks all the bulbs (excluding dash and numberplate bulbs) regardless whether they're switched on or off.

    Have you got Check control which tells you the exact bulb that has failed and displays it on the stereo display, or only the light in the speedo cluster that only tells you a bulb has failed, but not which one?

    I suggest you check the connection for the front bulbs as well.

    Also, if a brake light fails, then the lower of the 2 rear side lights takes over the role of brake/tail light.

    I think that in a day or Two you will see one of the bulbs has "blown" I had this with mine. It was telling me there was a "blown" sidelight bulb. But I could see nothing wrong. Then a few days later. There was one on the right that had gone out.

    mine stays on all the time because i fitted led's to the front sidelights

    with 'normal' 501 bulbs all is fine, and the message goes away.

    i know you can put a resistor in, just dont want to.

    It usually means the filament is going in the respective bulb. Last time, it kept warning for weeks before it actually failed.
    My offside parking light has been warning on and off for weeks, usually when you go over a bump. It hasn't done it since I blew a tyre on the M4, funnily enough..........
