Brake Light Indicator Reset

I was able to change my brake light bulb myself but the indicator is still coming on when I start the vehicle. Does this mean I did something wrong?

If not, how do I reset the indicator?

You have to replace the whole exterior housing. The contacts in the housing burn out. I've had to replace both sides on my X5 since I've owned it.
