Parking light malfunction warning

I have a 2015 328i xdrive.
My dash shows the yellow triangle with the exclamation point in it
I went to the onboard status and see a message saying 'parking light malfunction ' accompanied by an open triangle symbol.
That open triangle according to the owners manual means the deadline for scheduled maintenance or a legally mandated inspection is approaching.

All my lights are in working order
So I am confused by the warning and reference to scheduled maintenance
all and any help is appreciated
thanks
Mike

Check the little light in the upper corner of assembly.

Also look in the owners manual under lights. That will describe the parking bulb and how it is replaced. I replace both left and right when inexpensive bulbs like that expire.

Replaced with LEDs-both cool looking and long lasting.

thanks

Thanks all
problem resolved
It was indeed a burnt out parking light
That darm little thing is a little obscure tucked away in the upper corner of the assembly
It was easy enough to replace
thanks again
Mike
