2nd Stage Brake Light Malfunction

Every time I start my 07 X5 I get a warning message on th i-Control screen: 'right 2nd stage brake light malfunction.' I tried replacing the bulb with no change. My mechanic did a computer check and no trouble codes were displayed. Have any members had a similar problem or know what the repair might entail?

Yeah I had to replace the whole assembly; apparently at the factory, they didn't seal it up correctly, so water would seep especially during a car wash. The entire assembly basically shorted itself out.

Thanx alphaod. It figures, I'm always going through the car wash to keep it clean and nice looking. Do you remember how much the repair costs?
