Mein Auto: E36 328i Cabriolet
Question Spurious messages

The computer on my 1998 328i convertible has started displaying intermittent messages telling me I either have a tail light or brake light which has failed when, in fact, there is no problem with any of the lights.I have been told this sometimes occurs when a reasonably new bulb is paired with a reasonably old bulb and the computer wrongly thinks the older bulb has failed.With this in mind I have replaced both bulbs with new items but still have these messages. Can anyone please help?
Regards.
Bob Riley.
