Celis "Check Brake Light" after bulb change resolution

Many of us suffer from the "Check Brake Light" after changing out the small brake light bulbs in the Celis Taillights. After some research and testing, it is due to the current of the replacement bulbs.

If the replacement bulb has an amperage that is too low it will yield "Check Brake Light" just about everytime you start and shut off the car.

If the replacement bulb has an amperage that is too high it will yield "Check Brake Light", "Check Fog Lamps", "Check High Beam".

Replace bulb with sylvania 917 bulbs to resolve problem. The bulbs has an amperage of 1.2 and it will comply with LCM expectations.
